I was here three times and each night it was wall to wall people. Very popular night market! Lots of food stalls and lots of artifacts. There are some things here you don't see everywhere and the artists don't come every week so if you see something you like, buy it! Soap, oil, purses, tee shirts, small bags, jewelry, food,... More

If you are in Chiang Mai on a Sunday, you should definitely go to this night market, it was perhaps the most beautiful we have been to in SEA. Beside all the tasty food and the stuff you get everywhere, they also sell handicrafts, small design pieces and other interesting things. Really lovely and not too busy.

It was a great market! Very different things from the usual souvenirs we were used to seeing. They don't bargain as much though so we didn't really get any good deals.

I love local markets with lots of bargains, souvenirs, arts and crafts and many more. The colours, smell and sound are just a wonderful blend of bustling local tradition. However, there can be downside to this as well, like overcrowding, lots of characterless knock offs and rubbish good. Chiang Mai' Sunday walking market is different it is not a bazaar... More

There were lots of stalls selling a aselection of food and other items such as clothing, crafts, trainers and make up. Be prepared to see the same products being sold at the reams of stalls and be confident in haggling prices. Half the figure first and work your way up.

Arrive early but be prepared to amble slowly amongst the crowd. There are stalls of everything and more and it has a wonderful atmosphere. The best night market adventure by far.

A feast for all the senses! And plenty of bargains for the curio seeker--just remember to be polite and especially to smile! I wasn't there during peak season, and the street was still shoulder-to-shoulder. But the cultural mix was fascinating. And you just can't beat Thai street food! Well worth the time!

certainly among the most popular attractions of chiang mai. Every Sunday evening, from about 16.30 until 22.30, the old town from Wat Chedi Luang to the east gate), is transformed into one big open-air market. Articles of handicrafts and not clothing counterfeit or usually electronics gadgets. Take time to look for what you want and get ready to fill your... More

This market sets up late on a Sunday afternoon and is by far the most vibrant and interesting market to date. The stalls are endless - handicrafts and food galore - and the street entertainment is, well, entertaining! We were there 4-5 hours and I reckon we only saw half of what was on offer. We employed our usual strategy... More
