I went here and enjoyed my experience. There was a lot of walking involved and lots of the same stuff. But there was still different things to look at and lots of good food. There were lots of people so get there early to avoid the crowds.

Huge market. Lots of people, locals, vendors and tourists. I am not a big fan of crafts but if you like buying some of those souvenirs, it's a nice and inexpensive place. We bought a few insignificant items just to support local economy but some people might find more interesting things to buy.

This is by far the largest market I have seen! It's blocks and block in every direction in the center of the city. The temples are all in there among the stalls selling everything from food to souvenirs. The merchandise is excellent.

Its basically a chilled out version of Khao San road for shopping not bars. There aren't any people hassling you to get into a tuk tuk or to buy their merchandise. Lots of cheap things to buy and good eat outs nearby like McDonalds and Burger King or the thai stalls.

There are just so many shops and people! We were able to buy a lot of cute small souvenirs from this market with very good price! My 10 yo daughter just loved this place and wanted to spend hours here and go every night. However Unfortunately this market is open only on Sunday!! So if you are in town on... More

So good! A wonderful evening strolling along the streets, checking out all the wares, and eating ourselves silly. The market itself is larger than just the main street. We probably walked about 75% of it. There are a couple temple courtyards that have " food courts" where we were able to snack on some delicious street favorites. There are a... More

We truly enjoyed walking this long street market. It got so crowded when the night got darker. There were so many things to see, very interesting. You can also get some nice street food here. Many restaurants and cafes along the walking street too. There were also street performers. We found that the prices were quite cheap, some are fixed... More

This was the second time visiting the Sunday markets. Except this time we had four kids in tow. The markets are great. There is so much to take in from the music to the smells of food cooking let alone all the stalls. It is a decent walk but enjoyable we were even treated to a Chiang Mai hari Christner... More

Visited in July (which is supposedly not the tourist high season for Chiang Mai), but the market was EXTREMELY crowded. That said, I actually thought the goods sold were of a higher quality and more unique than those in other markets. I didn't have any issues with pickpockets, but definitely good to be vigilant given how crowded it is!

Food galore! shopping galore! Many stalls have fixed prices averting the need to bargain, lots of art, handicrafts, scarves, street food. No drinking alcohol allowed so very few drunk farang bogans! You can still ask for a "discount" when buying in bulk, prices generally very reasonable. TIP! If you take a scooter or need to walk back to hotel, take... More
