I am from England, we have markets here. But NEVER have I seen one on this scale, it was huge! There are food stalls, drink stalls, ornament stalls, clothes stalls, bags, jewellery, SO much more too. As they are so cheap out there I spent so much of my money here on presents for myself and family and friends. Not... More

It blows me away every time I go to Chiang mai to find the markets so busy. I think it's awesome they are so well attended by locals and travellers alike. The Saturday night market has a great atmosphere and caters to all requirements for goods, food, massage, haircuts and entertainment.

Basically they shut down a road every Saturday night and conduct a market on a straight stretch of road that seems to just keep going and going.You just start walking and when you've had enough you do a u-turn and walk back. Parking is a premium, so don't bring a car, get a tuk tuk or songtow instead.

We spent about 1.5 hrs here which is not nearly enough time. We cam early as recommended and the crowds were not too bad. Lots of food stalls and unique offerings for shopping. Plenty of tuk tuks at the end of the street to get you back to your hotel. We saw lots of locals as well as tourists. Entertainment... More

Lots to see and do, something for everyone. Great food stall choices and lots of inexpensive souvenirs; bargaining encouraged! Definitely place this activity on your short-list of things to do.

The Saturday night market was by far the best food we have had in Thailand. Amazing chicken skewers, satay, grilled prawns, sweets, drinks, you name it and they have it there. Much better atmosphere than the Sunday market and heaps of locals as well as tourists are there. Would recommend going early at 5pm or so to miss the crowds-... More

The Saturday Night Market bears the true meaning of the local markets in Chiang Mai! You can find shoes, clothes, trinkets, house decorations and...well anything! And don't forget the food. You can find it literally anywhere at any price. (starting at 5 bath up to 100). Don't be shy and try to explore the market at any corner, you will... More

Not as many tourists as the Sunday night walking street, some items are cheaper and new local produced products debut here. Go between 1800-1900 or 2130-2300 to avoid the rush hour period.

Best time to grab some souveniers. T shirts, dried food, massages etc.. Slowly wonder among the street stalls and polish your bargaining skills.. Go to different stalls to get the feeling before buying. Politely decline if you think the price is expansive. If you are driving, then you need to find a parking lot.. luckily I found somewhere along Nantaram... More

I had a great time here, bought all my souvenirs and ate anything I wanted! Prices can be haggled down loads and as a result can be much cheaper than other areas in Thailand. It is tiring and sometimes very smelly but worth it!
