Well this is not a market for the faint hearted. Miles and miles of main street packed with stalls on at least both sides,plus many side streets which are pretty long too. We spent 4 1/2 hours looking hard and it was splendid! Every type of food you have never even thought of, every type of clothing, toy, jewellery and... More

They say that the Sunday market is better than the one on Saturday, well if it's hustle and bustle you want you will not be disappointed, 50 Thai Batt for a Turk tukk to and from our hotel full of stalls and plenty of hand made souvenirs after two hours we had had enough

Only 50 baht for a tuk tuk each way from our hotel near the Night Bazaar to the Thapae Gate which we found to be a good starting point just before 5 p.m. We walked up one side of the street and down the other but we also went down some of the streets that branch off of the Walking... More

The Sunday Walking Street Market is great fun. It's loud (for some reason they keep blaring the same irritating song over and over again from speakers situated on lamp posts) and crowded, but offers a great array for food and other items. After two hours we had seen enough, but it was a good experience.

I was not able to go to the Saturday walking market and so can only compare the Sunday walking market with the Kalare night bazaar. The Sunday one is definitely worth waiting for - more artists and handmade items. The Kalare is very commercialized where they basically sell the same mass produced souvenirs (T shirts, trinkets, bags, etc.) while the... More

Had high expectations due to the great reviews. However, as someone used to the vibrancy and variety of quality goods available in Taiwanese night markets, this place was a huge letdown. Majority of the stalls sold the same old trinkets and souveneirs, with a few food stalls thrown in along the way. Seems to be catered more for tourists than... More

The moment you reach at the main entrance. There is a signage showing No smoking and No alcohol. This is good. Hawker stalls selling variation of delicacies, delicious but there is no dustbin available.

Great fun and clean, but can get super crowded at night. We went around 4.30 pm when it was just starting up and even after 3 hours didn't make it through all of it. Too many cute stalls and gift ideas, and everything was inexpensive (10 to 300 baht for most items we bought). You can bargain a bit with... More

A very active and popular market full of local crafts and food. There was live music with a stage full of local singers and dancers. The market goes over several streets in the Old Town.

I really enjoyed this market because of the varieties of things that were offered. The food and drinks were really great! The people are really nice. I didn't like the fact that I got stomped on my feet on like a million times and pushed though. The thing I also like about this market is that no one is trying... More
