I went for a walk yesterday in the hope to find the "old lady" and her famous Sai ue. Once inside the building itself, I quickly found the food section and the famous Sai ue. Not hard the miss since it is crowded with locals at het booth. I bought one piece for 70 baht and it was worth every... More

Deep inside the bowels of the markets Worowat sits an old grey haired woman. Well, more like half sitting half lying, but either way mostly she’s in a state of slumber. You’ll notice her stall when you see a line of faithful customers waiting patiently to be served by the several attendants that man this food stall. Such is the... More

This was just another market to us. I am sure for locals its great, but nothing stood out to us. There were some food areas as well.

I found this market didnt have enough to make this an enjoyable market. Alot of food stalls which were interesting to look at, but all in all a bit boring.

If you want a break from all the tourist crap ... have a look in this area. Many local stores including fabric, plastic, cooking, etc. and then there is the market with mostly food, clothing and other items. Little fresh food (some small stalls outside) but mostly dried. Bought a pestle and mortar in the market to make curry paste,... More

Located just beyond Tha Phae Rd, off Chang Klan, the market has an overwhelming mixture of foods, goods and mysteries. Inside the three story building in a pandoras box of surprises. The flower market is a nice surprise on the Ping River (east) side of the market. A mini-china town is a bonus.

Warorot Market is not a vast area but contains just about everything from freshly slaughtered animals to retail clothing and shoes, from packaged and loose foods and spices to electrical goods and gizmos, from fruit and veges to food courts and the not to be missed fresh flower market (we did not know that there were that many orchids in...

This is a sprawling Market (in Thai called Kad Luang) is in Chinatown (yup, Chiangmai has one) so its character is flavored by the community. This place, like something out of Harry Potter, looks small from the outside but step in…it's MASSIVE with 3 levels to prowl; plus an overhead bridge on 3/F connecting to another renovated market (avoid that...

Quite an interesting local market to explore for local food & souvenir . Can be very hot during the hot season, so best to visit in the morning.
