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,...

We were in Chiang Mai for two days and one night only. Luckily that one night fell on a Saturday and we took the chance to experience the Saturday Night Market. And it was an experience. Two hours is not enough. A variety of food, clothes, decor, jewelry, etc, etc. Be prepared to haggle.

Nice markets with lots going on. There is loads of cheap and delicious food to try, it's well worth a stroll along to see what's happening.

We weren't on a Sunday. Was one of the biggest markets we had seen. Loads of items and great street food. Was lovely to walk about, haggling was easy and clothes were lovey. Enjoy.

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
