Unlike other tourist towns in Thailand, Chiangmai is still laid back. Small things like night markets differentiates this quaint place from other bustling cities. We went here twice during the trip to eat and shop. Easy to spend 2-3 hrs here. Locals sell food and goods. I had mango sticky rice on both days from the same stall - good... More

Had a great time walking round here looking at all the handmade crafts I could buy as gifts to take home. There were some interesting and unique items to see! Apparently this market is more expensive because of the tourists, but in my opinion it was still very cheap and the quality of goods was much higher than what you... More

The prices are on a little higher side when compared to street markets in other cities. I expected a little lesser than what they are selling for. Not a market to do value buying

Lots of food stalls, knick-knacks, gift stalls, clothing, toys, photo's and of course the all popular "rip off" items. Just have to watch out for traffic when crossing the street as the Night Bazaar is located on both sides of a busy road. Also, watch your footing as you walk - as with most side walks and streets in Thailand.... More

We spent many a happy hour wandering around the stalls, always something to see and plenty of bargains to buy, don't be afraid to haggle, its expected. It felt really safe and there are plenty of places to stop for a drink and a rest.

Probably OK if you're really into large markets but I found this dull. The same kind of stuff many times over.

many types of clothes and accessories, but with a local Chiang Mai specialty like hand crafts, creative artistic sculptures, paintings (amazing beautiful & cheap), portraits and other local crafts. Do visit at least once to appreciate the culture of Chiang Mai.

From Bangkok,I decided to go to Chiang Mai by train. The train tickets were arranged by my travel agents in Karachi who also arranged pick up from the hotel (President Palace) early in the morning in Bangkok. My visit was in Nov.2013 and the weather was pleasant. It took around 12 hours from Bkok to Chiang Mai and the return... More

The Night Bazaar happens every night and is a great place to pick up a bargain as long as you are willing to barter hard. If you are staying for a few days work out what you want and pick a quiet night to barter to get what you want for the best price. The markets in Chiang Mai offer... More

Me and my friend really enjoyed the night bazaar, it was probably the best place we shopped in the whole of Thailand. They had everything you could think of or need and we ended end spending far too much on lots of things we didn't need :)
