I really didn't enjoy this market because it was absolutely heaving with people. It could have been a particularly busy time of year, but I couldn't enjoy this market at all. If you don't enjoy crowds of people everywhere I would skip this.

It is not just for cheap souvenir shopping but also a feast for the eyes and souls with wonderful paintings and handcrafts! I personally prefer this rather than Sunday walking street for its variety of stalls and size of the night market.

Very nice stalls and food; we just had Thai-style tapas dinner here and there while we walked by all the nooks and crannies of the market. It took us nearly 4h! Maybe because of the novelty but we preferred this market than Sunday's one, it felt a bit less overcrowded Try arriving around 18h to enjoy fully as the later... More

We must of spent 3-4 hours walkin, only stopping to eat at a near by local restaurant. Yes there was some things 'same same' but this was one of the better markets I have experienced in SE Asia, and I've seen a few. Picked up some TShirts, wooden statues, and cheap sourveniers for mates back home. Glad I went. We... More

What an experience here. There is so much to see and do including the temples (so don't forget the cameras). The food courts offer a wide range of cuisine and entertainment too.

Went to Saturday night walking market, lots of fun! Very crowded but the stall holders were very pleasant ready to bargain a bit - but a lot of things were priced already. Great atmosphere.

We took our hotel shuttle bus and arrived at the market at 7.00pm and we have never seen so many people crowded into such a narrow street. The stalls were interesting and we did buy some souvenirs and ate some very tasty food but the large crowds were a little scary and we were constantly being pushed which we didn't... More

We arrived early and walked a good part of the road with stalls either side. It was not busy. There are numerous side streets which add to the overall market. We ate mid way down the road and then endured the crush at about 6.30 to the extent that it became impossible to look at anything. We managed to buy... More

An endless stream of uniquely fascinating market stalls. You can really experience culture and cuisine of a different level and enjoy quirky, authentic market finds. The ubiquitous influence of the market traders create a truly immersive experience that you will not forget. During our repeated visits, we watched a band of blind musicians create a wonderful exhibition of local music... More
