A great place to walk around and pick up a few bargains. Generally work on getting things for about 50% of the first price quoted bags start at 1800b but you can get for 900b. A great place to eat also I spent 2 night here just walking about.one of the best places in thailand for shopping

Chiang Mai Night Bazaar is first and foremost a must-see for any tourist to the city. Yes, while it is a bit of a tourist-trap, I still find the shops affordable and decent. Despite living in Chiang Mai for ages, I still drop by to either 1) bring visitors and our tourist friends over or 2) buy decent souvenirs whenever... More

There are so many stands that you are likely to run out of energy and money before you see everything. The wares on sale are priced well, and everyone seemed open to bargaining too. The items werent all plastic and mass produced at all. Beautiful items and gifts everywhere you look. Be prepared to buy many things and not know... More

We only had a couple of nights in town before onward travel so my husband and I checked out the night bazaar fir souvenir shopping in Chiang Mai. I recall that the energy was action packed and some of the sales people would really go after the customer (more aggressively than normally in Thailand!). One lady especially kept shouting heir...

Hands crafts and perfect little gifts on either side of the street for blocks. If you are in chiangmai you can not miss going to the... More

Okay, first of all I'm a bit confused when reading the previous reviews. I didn't find any food in Night Bazaar, the food were in Kalare market, across the Night Bazaar. That's already two different markets but I guess because of its close proximity, people think that they're the same. The Night Bazaar itself was very disappointing. It was my... More

We decided to go to Chiang Mai primarily to visit the Elephant Nature Park, a sanctuary for abused elephants. Since we arrived the day before our visit there we had time to explore the city by day and by evening. By just walking around the city we stumbled upon several temples that also housed monks. It was toward dusk and... More

Spent 2 nights here. Great lively market with lots of variety and great food stalls. Make sure to try the hand made ice cream and chocolate roti stand. A bit less variety compared to the sunday night market however as many stalls are selling the same thing.

We decided to check out the Night Bazaar just to get out and do something during the evening. My friend was on the hunt specifically for art which is located in a different area than the main bazaar area. Lots of knick knacks, knock off items, street food, and fun things like henna. Also there were live cover bands performing,... More
