A great way to spend an evening.The street food is fantastic and there are lots of opportunities to haggle for a bargain.Make sure you compare prices on different stalls to ensure you get a fair price.If you are travelling anywhere else in Thailand,many of the items you see will be on sale,but will be more expensive ,so stock up your...

By far my favourite market in Thailand (although I haven't been to bangkok yet), you could look where you pleased and no one really hassled you, the handicraft was beautiful and I wanted to buy the whole market!! Take lots of small notes and barter yourself a good deal. Try some of the veggie spring rolls if you see them!... More

If you're in Chiang Mai for Sun. night I highly recommend that market but if not, the Sat. night market is a close 2nd. The location for Sat. was a bit more out of the way for us. They have a lot of the same goods and food that the other markets have but it's still a neat experience.

This is a fantastic market, but you need to do your research as usual. we came last Saturday and basically just looked and during the week checked prices against other markets. Then we came back this week and bought lots of things that we knew we could here at the best prices, lots of fun bartering with the locals and... More

Just retuned from this walking street market. Lots and lots of good food on sale and hundreds of vendors selling mostly local handicrafts. But very crowded and there's nothing more tiresome than tourist and Thai teens stopping in the middle of the walkway to mess about with Facebook. One vendor /stall I enjoyed was selling 'golden oldies' CDs - artists... More

We had a great time at the Saturday night Markets, we tried lots of different food and checked out all the local produce and it was interesting on what people were selling.. Picked up a few gifts for our family here.

We went there looking for some food and shopping but it was too crowded and almost dangerous trying to cross all the roads to the different sections in heavy traffic. We left and found a nearby restaurant and had a thoroughly enjoyable, non crowded meal!!

It was hot and crowded, but there were so many places to buy food and drinks. This is a great place to get souvenirs! try to bring small bills-it's awkward when you're haggling and you end up giving them big bills.

So much: clothing, food, art, jewelry, goods, and almost everything else. You can find it here! Great massages near temple 130 baht special- older specialists know what they are doing! Dragonfruit drinks rock! Go near end of trip and bargain for all but food and massages!
