Great sized market with tons of vendors and variety. Try to get there early if your not a fan of crowds as things seem to get rather busy around 8 or 9. The food is a little spread out but tend to concentrate mostly near the street intersections. There are definitely enough tasty stalls to make your way through for... More

Nothing different or special of the walking street, except if you like super truper crowded places. All the stuff is same same, it's super crowded and you barely can see the shops as well as all you see is swamps of people. If you want to shop then the Anusan / night market is way better.

This place is surely not the place if you don't like big crowds. I'm not sure if it usually packed but I was there a night before Songkran, so maybe that is why there was a sea of human as far as your eyes can see. There is just too many things to look at and while prices are reasonable,... More

This market was right on our doorstep and was a highlight of our time in Chiang Mai. It does get busy later on, so i would start early. We started about 5, and were walking around it for a good 4 hours. The market is huge if you choose to see all of it, stretching over several streets. We must... More

This was a nice market with many things for sale - from food to magnets to clothes and other knick knacks. I found it got extremely busy at night - so if possible go early. We were there at 4pm and not all the stalls were open. There's a lot of variety of food there - you could eat your... More

This market was very different to the other markets available in Chiang Mai. There was a lot of local arts and crafts on sale, and local food products and were people singing pop and traditional music. There was this little girl standing next to who i think was her father in her school uniform singing international and local pop songs.... More

I loved this market! I have seen markets in Bangkok, and the Saturday market in chiang mai and this is definitely the best of them all. Bangkok seem to sell 'samey samey' stuff eg. Fake bags, shoes, clothes etc. Whereas the Saturday and Sunday markets in chiang mai are full of beautiful handmade and hand crafted gifts, ornaments, bags, shoes,... More
