If you can imaging it, it is probably there. This market is huge - I don't think we discovered it all. Had so much fun buying interesting food, cheap clothes and all manner of lovely things at great prices. The markets wander in and out and around lots of streets so be careful not to get lost while you are... More

The best market compare to Warorot Market and Night Bazaar. You see more handicraft stuffs here....lovely place to explore. If you only have one night to explore market, i would suggest go for this weekend market. However, if you are into buying snacks then Warorot Market offer better price, here maybe 10% to 15% higher. Our driver recommended that we... More

It's huge with all kind of colours, senses and of course lots & lots of people. It's a good market to spend the evening. Recommend.

The night bazaars with the street traffic shut down for a night are part of the fun and culture of a visit to Thailand. Go and enjoy but remember "personal space" is not an option in Asia. There are many crafts and foods as well as many basics for purchase. This is well worth a little time while traveling in... More

Saturday market is smaller than Sunday market, but it's more special.Two girls from TW draw tatoo for travel fee,the tatoo only will stay one week,they do draw on your skin not just use a sticker & spray color. And we bought many handmade crafts with fair price.Then next day we go to Sunday market, I think it's disaster.it seems everyone... More

Absolutely huge market, good for souvenirs but extremely touristy and after a short time you'll just see the same stuff over and over again... worth a quick visit.

I didn't want to fight crowds but my Chiangmai friend tells me its more reasonable than other markets and to do this if I only picked one to go to. Sigh - Thai-style pants, tie-dye shirts, snacks, tchatchkas (key rings, placemats) stalls in that order then repeat. The flared, thick Thai silk pants with embroidered ankle cuffs and belts were...

The walking street market is great if you have a brief stop over in Chiang Mai, and worthwhile if your stay crosses over a Saturday evening. However we wouldn't suggest planning your trip to Chiang Mai to fall over a Saturday just to make it. The markets are colourful, musical and tasty. There is plenty of 'street' style local eats,...
