We attended both the Sunday night markets (bigger than the normal nights and slightly different products) and also the markets on a Monday night. There are a lot of shops with the same things however there's also some gems in there when you find the handmade crafts. Remember to barter as it is expected and you can find some really... More

If you haven't been to a market in Thailand then you would probably enjoy it. If you have, its all the same stuff. Save yourself time and money and if you can visit the Saturday Night market ...it isn't all same same

If you're in Chiang Mai the Night Bazaar is a must. Great shopping and an excellent atmosphere. If you've just landed from one of Thailands other main cities you'll find this place very relaxed and a pleasure to stroll around. The stall vendors are friendly and not pushy at all. Tip - Make sure you're hungry! There are plenty of... More

Our first visit was quite good. it was pricey but at least we were happy. On our 2nd trip there a few nights later, it... More

We went to this bazaar after visited Saturday Weekend Night Market. Honestly, we do not really like the atmosphere here compare to the weekend market. Though not very crowded as we reached here around 7.30pm. But here you can find many fake brand goods but not in weekend market. There are some seafood restaurants here but the price is quite...

The night market takes place on a the east side of the old city. You can easily find it by walking straight out from the old city via the Tha Phae Gate. The market itself is setup on the sidewalks of the street with the vendors on both sides of each sidewalk as you walk through. As a result, most... More

Nice night market with lots going on. A lot of the stalls will sell the same things so shop around and don't be afraid to barter. Also check out the cabaret show while here

The night bazaar in Chiang Mai is a must experience. It's here if you want it I'm sure. Actually, big items, little items, food and who knows what else! It is a very large market area plus the many stalls on the sidewalk. If you want to eat, you can eat at a restaurant or have street food. Drinks can... More

This place offers a unique night outdoor shopping experience which is better than those in Bangkok. There's more space with smaller crowd in cooler weather. There are the typical imitation goods alongside local handicrafts at affordable prices. Bargaining is a must for a fuller shopping experience as human interaction with language obstacles enrich our human nature. There's no hard selling... More
