Here you'll find + food than thinks to buy. In the other (Anusan Sunthon Rd) it's cheaper and you can buy more varieties without leaving the place with the smell of food.

This is WAY better than the regular night market in town and is well worth a visit if you are in Chiang Mai on a Sunday. Don't bother with dinner reservations, just try all the lovely street food you've been ogling around town - all of it is available here and there is plenty of choice. I agree with others... More

TONS of people. Tourists and locals mingle to get the best deal on hand-crafted and mass made products. Food stalls abound.

If you're in chiang mai on a Saturday evening the night market is well worth a visit. Much less touristy than the night bazaar with a greater variety of stalls. We wondered around happily from 6 to about 1030 with a chang in hand eating street food along the way. It does get busy around 7, as you would expect... More

Just have been there today from 6-8pm. Probably one of the nicest markets in Thailand, very good street food, nice clothes etc. Also fair prices, eg 200 B for long female dress, and not much room for negotiations. Maybe not the biggest, you can go through it in half an hour.

Similar to Sunday night walking market, quite busy with flocks of tourists plodding like cattle past various stalls of street food and myriad wares. Cool crafts and some nice art stalls but else same as Sunday market.

If you're in Chiang Mai on a Saturday night, don't miss this market. It's pleasantly crowded and offers a much better selection than the touristy stuff at the nightly bazaar near Lon Kroh road. My wife and daughter purchased beautiful hand crafted brass jewelry while I bought beautiful Thai silk scarves for friends back home. There are also many food... More

We went to the Saturday night walking street market. It started out ok, we had a great time wandering and checking out all the stalls. Some really great stuff on display, interesting handicrafts, art work and great food. We bought a few things along the way. But then the crowd built up really quickly and it was so packed you...

Not for the faint-hearted, Chiang Mai's Saturday Walking Street Markets (4pm-10pm) seem to go on forever and are perhaps the best in Asia. The street food is great, but if you prefer to sit down, The Sunday Walking Street has a lot more restaurant options. It also passes a number of interesting temples.
