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.

Great thing about this market is that you can go anytime (and any weather) and the standard of stalls is still good! Much of the produce is similar to other markets but there are a few interesting areas to explore. Some nice shops around the area also. My girlfriend and I came away with very comfortable new shoes! Yus!

I lived in Chiang Mai for 18 months and this market was one of my favourite places to visit. Hard to quantify what I like so much about it, but just loved to wander aimlessly around, soaking up the sights and smells, which is a basically a market for the local Thais. As an added note, there is a Chinese... More

Tons of things to look at and buy, it has alot of produce for the locals to buy and sell, clothes, souvenirs, as well as live seafood? Dried fruits, squid, fish, and sausage. Some areas are really stinky, and if you are like my husband, he had to quickly get out of the dried fish and squid area, lol. It... More

Skip Night Bazaar and come to Warorot instead. You will find the same products and so much more for a cheaper price. Many locals come here to shop. I love to browse the shops with fabric here, can only recommend it. At night they set up stalls with food and inexpensive clothes/accessories. Great atmosphere!

This is a pretty indicative local market, selling everything from turtles and eels for dinner, to clothing and fabric. Fantastic herbs, dried food, and tea as well. Wear waterproof shoes, and thrill to the sight of open air meat sales.

I have been here on many occasions to buy all manner of things. The spicy pork sausage a Chiang Mai special is fantastic here. So are many other food items that are all bought by the locals giving a indication of good value and authentication. There is plenty to see and well worth a few hours stroll and sample the... More
