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

This is supposedly the oldest and most famous market in town. It caters mostly to locals. It is certainly big and crowded and it contains an impressive variety of stalls with fruit, vegetables, other foodstuffs, clothes, shoes, and household goods. There was some handicraft around the fringes, but the Anusan market offers a much better choice for souvenir shopping, in... More

This market is located only a short walk from Chiang Mai Night Bazaar and is located near the Ping River. Its open every day from 5am to 6pm and from 5pm to 11pm located in the Night Market Alley. This is a great local market and you see many Thais going about doing their shopping. Prices are much better than... More

We always collect goods from here Fabrics herbs and spices which we barter down to below Bangkok prices. Try the dried Bael to make really nice Bael juice at home no sugar required it's naturally sweet. Collect your chilies here both fresh and dried hot and super hot.

Everything that you could be looking for & if you look hard & dig deep inside the market, you will see some pretty interesting things. It has the classic market smells, some good, some not so good. This place is really interesting and well worth a visit. You are sure to find some original brand T shirts like Aaidas or... More

This is the place if you wish to be with the locals. Everything from dried food to clothes is available here at cheap prices. The sellers won't move much on price but then they are already so cheap. Don't just spend your time in here but also the adjacent wet market and flower area and the adjoining streets. Even if... More

Large variety of food and clothes . Full of hustle and bustle .Don't expect to bring down the prices by more than 10% but appreciate that the price is fair for the quality . Flower market is nearby

Warorot Market is crazy busy and if you limit yourself to the 2 "shopping malls" you won't find the best bargains. Take some time and walk the back streets where the wholesale stores are located. You can buy one or multiple items and the prices are in some cases, significantly different. Pashmina's selling for 200 bhat in the stores and... More

Three floors of the same low quality expensive junk. The prices are very high for the same stuff you can buy in the side of the road for 100baht. No unique stores or the like. Not worth your time.
