Crazy Thai Market

I liked the insane amount of items. You have to haggle with the traders though. Most friendly, some not. From rings to tortoises to clothes!

Great place to shop for inexpensive goods. Sell many different thing. Great place to have real local food and deserts as well. After 5pm, the place convert itself into a night market that sell amazing cheap street foods.

Recently visited Chiang Mai during the Chinese new year period and made several trips down to Warorot. I bought some really nice collared dress shirts for $5.00 US, several T-shirts and lots of other articles of assorted clothing which can be purchased at an unbelievable price. There were lots of food stalls and interesting things to look at. There is... More

This is such a good market that it serves both tourists and local people at the same time. And I love that I don't have to bargain too much (just a little). The price is really cheap and the people there are so nice even when you buy only 1 meter of fabric. Highly recommend for everyone :)

This market is definitely a must visit place in Chiang Mai. It’s slightly east of city center; you’ll be greeted with fairly dense foot and car traffic when you arrive. What makes this place so unique is that it is geared more towards locals than tourists.This is a huge market that consists of many outdoors stalls and two multi-story buildings.... More

I love a good market and especially one like this that takes you behind the main shopping streets and bazaars to what has a more local feel.

the first thing to say is that the market isn't where it says on trip advisor. It's actually near the night bazaar at that end of town. You can get a good selection of bracelets, clothes, bags etc. The food court at the bottom isn't the best, but you can get an omelette and rice for 50p.

Was much better than any night market. There is a hawang section that sells authentic hill tribe craft and clothes. Amazing selection and value. They don't negotiate down too much but it is outstanding quality. The food section with spices teas nuts etc is jaw dropping. I've never seen such a wide variety of dried fruits and chillis. Must visit... More

Quite different from the markets in Bangkok. This is a 'local' market and tourist attraction in one. It is a head-spin assault on all your senses. The colours, the smell, the noise, people touching you as they try to pass in narrow lanes, the taste of dried squid, fresh strawberries and pineapple with spices. It's a busy place. Take care...

I have been to this market on numerous occasions but nothing matches going on Chinese New Year. Many streets are closed off to allow more cooking booths, clothing and a multitude of other things to be sold. The sounds, smells, sites and beauty are amplified! This is always a great market to buy foods, flowers, and many other things. If... More
