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!

There are some great things to buy, but there are lots of people about. It does pay to get in early, say 5-6pm & avoid the masses. Look off to the sides of the main street, as some of the stores are also open.

Shoppers paradise! If you want it, it's most likely for sale here! To be honest it was so packed we gave up after a short while and settled for a pad thai restaurant a quarter of the way along the market, it was so packed you couldn't even really see the stalls. If you like markets this is definitely for... More

Tips: Be there early and bring cash The Saturday night is more local and less tourists than the Sunday market.

Really cool stuff here and food but watch your pockets! It's pretty basic common sense when you're in a crowd to keep and eye and hand on your belongings and as long as you do that you're good :)

This is a long street closed off for the market, in addition there are adjacent small streets also with stalls. Even if you don't come to shop simply strolling the street looking at the stalls, vendors and visitors is enough to make the visit worthwhile. If you are hungry there are a multitude of vendors selling a variety of food.

Food, food and more food! I absolutely love the Saturday Night market. There are so many food stalls selling all varieties of local delicacies. It's really crowded but fun hunting for something to eat. Buy a little of everything so you could sample as much as possible of the local food!

The size was just unbelievable and if you could not find anything to buy that would just have been amazing. Hard to describe how big it was but if felt like it took up all of the old city in Chiang Mai. A lot of the sightseeing things were there too - the old gate as well as a few... More

Highly recommended. It gets very busy but that's all part of the fun. We ate and ate and ate as we walked down the street with hundreds of others. Lots of handmade items and shopping to be had as well. We had 2 small children with us so had to hold on to them tight so as not to get... More
