Great market where the locals do all their shopping.Taxis know it as Kad Luang and you can take in a great stroll by the river whilst you're there. Has great fruit and vegetables much cheaper than the supermarkets, as well as clothes, fabrics, jewellery, cheap electronics. Great little flower market where the Thais pick up their temple offerings. Plenty to... More

The more you look, the more you find. I have been here dozens of times and keep finding new and interesting shops. It is not only the market, but also the streets close to it and the shops within. Great place to explore.

This weekend market is not be missed during one's visit to Chiangmai (city). It's situated close to the Thapae Gate. It's a pretty big market during the weekend. Not sure if it's opened during the weekday - I doubt it though - that's why it's called a "weekend market." There are so many things to do here - buy, eat,... More

This market is really great if you want to get a feel for how real Thai people live. Not a big tourism area in my experience. No one is pushing you to buy anything, really affordable prices, that being the case I found that most vendors there are not as inclined to bargain down their prices any more. You can... More

Got the inside scoop from a friendly thai local that this market was the one to go to. He was certainly right, it's the best and most authentic market experience you can have in Chiang Mai. About 5min walk up from the night bazaar, it's a collection of streets and buildings full of everything. Great for clothing, more to the... More

Out of the various markets we visited between both Chiang Mai, and Bangkok, this is the one we liked the best. The vendors had a much wider variety of items, including handmade and local, compared to the big markets which had a lot of likely imported products, a ton of tshirts and other stuff not that interesting to tourists. This... More

This is where the tourist stall holders get their raw materials and stock from ? 😊 A great experience - immerse yourself in a great shopping experience. Anything you might want is in the market or in the shops around.
