Delicious food, vendors selling anything you could possibly want (and not being pushy or demanding), people playing music - it's definitely a key thing to do if you find yourself in Chiang Mai on a Sunday night!

The Sunday walking street markets that take up most of the central area of the old city in Chiang Mai are easily amongst the most interesting and best-priced markets you can find in SE Asia. You can find everything here from your standard sunglasses, watches, etc to beautiful Hill Tribe clothing and delicious food. You can literally spend hours upon... More

Awesome. Long street with local food and vendors, I can't ask for more. Always crowded and buzzing with good energy. No pushy vendors, just lots of them. Thai iced tea, grilled Thai sausage, and pad thai, man oh man! Oh mango and sticky rice too. Street performers here and there, amazing variety of vendors, it's the anti-mall; nice mix of... More

This is a marvelous market where artisans of all kinds exhibit their creations...everything from decorated childrens shoes, to puppets, to clothing, to candles carved like flowers. Also many food stands, an occasional musician, even places where you can get a quick foot massage. Quite an experience for the young and the old. Starts around 4 p.m. and gets more and... More

You have no reason to visit Chiang Mai if you do not come to this. There were hundreds of street booths selling all kind of products, ranging from bags, clothes, lamps to traditional art and crafts. Please reserve at least four hours for this. Wonderful street food vendors can be found inside the Wats along the road, and also near... More

Tha Pae Gate in Chiang Mai is always worth a visit. There is always something happening. Flowers exhibition, Thai dancing, Thai local orchestras and more But on Sunday, there is really moving in with the weekly market. Start at the Tha Pae Gate and walk down the road Rachadamnoen. Lots of action, smell from all the food stalls, entertainment, fire... More

They go on forever! I was there yesterday and they start setting up around 5 which is fun to watch it all unfold around you. I walked back through around 10pm and its just massive. They shut down most of the center of Chiang Mai and have everything you could possibly need. I walked around for hours and it tends... More

You will need 2 Sundays to walk through all the stalls. Performers everywhere. Side streets have art works on the road. So many choices. You can buy cold water in bottles everywhere.

The Sunday Night Market is a very nice place to go. However, it is very packed of people and the crowd is very very dense. It is hard to walk fast on the main street or around it. For that reason, the stands near the Tha Pae Gate are much more fun to check, but you do it in about... More
