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!

This is great opportunity to try variety North Thai street food :) Can buy and try really wide range of foods. Also it was interesting to see how locals have fun - music, dances, massage tents working. Really enjoyable and recommended.

One of the best markets I've been to. There's so much to choose from and nobody shouting at you to buy stuff! You can just look in peace and buy if you want!!

I really really really love a market. So i had already been to many through out SE Asia before arriving to Chiang Mai. Since this is a larger, rather well known market, I was worried it would be mass produced tourist crap and just a crowded circus. But its quite the opposite. It is really large, across many streets for... More

These markets are awesome so much great fresh food and many bargains to be found. We strolled through the markets for hours there are so many stalls to see. There are lots of amazing handmade items to find. The food stalls are the highlight of these markets, we had a 6 course meal with each course costing 30THB (roughly $1AU).

While in Chiang Mai you have to make sure you stay over on a Saturday night as the night markets along the outer wall of the inner city is something to be apart of. Food culture experience is only one of the many things you can do and while you are there I am sure you will find something to... More

Nice place to go Saturday night. Is a huge market you need at least 2h to walk thru all market but basically after you walk a few stands they all sell the same... You can always negotiate the price. Nice place to go.

Both Saturday and Sunday markets were close this weekend. Such a shame as I was really looking forward to the great experience so many people have had. I am assuming that this is due to coup.

We spent a week in Chiang Mai and went to every market possible (night bazaar, saturday + sunday, and flower market). Actually we completely burned ourselves out on markets and never want to see one again. The Wua Lai market might be the exception. This Saturday walking street market has a huge array of unique local handicrafts, merchandise and food.... More
