This is the real thing campers! The night markets are where you go for the tourist thing after dark, and Chiang Mai gate and the old town is the place to go for really incredible street food at night. But this is the place to visit if you want to see where the Thai locals shop. This place is enormous,... More

Don't miss this interesting market where you can pick up almost anything. Two sections - The wet market where all the local buy their supplies of meat, vege and spices. Not for the faint hearted at certain sections where the smell can be overwhelming but certainly an eye opener on the daily lives of the locals. Across the road is... More

If you are looking for authenticity, especially for where to find traditional northern Thai street food, then go here. The market is a labyrinth, so take your time and don't worry about getting lost. Just make it an adventure.

Warorot Market is usually the market of choice for Thais visiting Chiang Mai, mainly for indigenous food items like sausages, candies and chili paste, among others. Go there if you have something specific in mind. Otherwise, you are likely to be confused by the number of stalls selling virtually the same items. You should have acquired a taste for the... More

25 minute walk from my hotel (Rimping Village). Love the flower vendors on the river side road before you turn left into the market. Would have loved to buy some flowers had I had more time in Chiang Mai. Many food stalls surrounding the market building, it was a bargain to buy peeled pomelo (Chinese grapefruit, sweet and juicy for... More

Went at 4pm, abit disappointed that they are closing shops soon to give way to the night markets. Exciting to see the going-ons in the market before they close. Food not so cheap as they can tell that we are tourists and as they are closing, they are not really happy to entertain though website say they close at 6pm...... More

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
