I visited warorot on three occasions. The vibrant atmosphere and extensive variety of affordable products just kept dragging me back. If you're looking for a local market rather than a tourist experience such as the walking streets then this is the place for you.

I am really enjoyed wandering within this market, some covered and some uncovered. This is a market to do the shopping every day, so food and clothing above. It's not a craft market as the sunday or saturday market, then you will find articles that are quite different.

This is the real thing, not a market for tourist but a place where locals shop daily. There is an abundance of product but don't expect much foreign languages.

Great place in Chiang mai for shopping with the locals in Chiang mai. The prices are more reasonable than at the tourist markets and the food displays are awesome. Be warned information out there says market open every day at 6am however I turned up on Sunday morning to find very little open at 8am

We tried the khao soi sold in the middle of this market and it was one of the best in Chiang Mai. The market and the food stalls are clean. The mango sticky rice also great.

This is the busiest place during the day. You can find almost everything here, from clothing, local food, fresh fruits to jewelry, you name it they got it. I bought some fresh fruits, the price is really cheap! You can also tryout all the local food sold by the old ladies with so many varieties and again with very low... More

We spent a quick hour looking through these markets when several hours is needed. Fascinating place. Taking a tour may be a good option, then got back on your own. It's busy & crowded. Easy to get lost.

I've visited Warorot Market many, many times & this trip to Chiang Mai in July was no different for us. You can buy fresh food, flowers, clothing, fabrics, watches, jewellery, gold, bags etc, etc, etc! It is cheaper to buy from Warorot than the night / street markets which are obviously targeted at tourists. The food hall selling tasty Thai... More

If you have never been to an Asian market, you should go just to see how people live here and for cultural purposes and to really appreciate how good life at home is. There is a lot of animal cruelty in Asia, most of which can be seen in these markets. One would need to have a very cold heart... More

Visited this market and found it very hot and busy like many markets in Chiang Mai however, this market is a warren of small shops and stalls making it even hotter and busier. Lots of locals here. Very much filled with tat so don't go here expecting quality Thai souvenirs unless you want to buy underwear or lengths of material.
