Was pretty excited about going there after having read mostly positive reviews. However, it was rather disappointing. The food was ok, but not really special. For local food I would rather recommend the other market. Besides that you can just buy the stuff they sell anywhere else. Have been to better ones, such as the one in Chiang Mai.

Out of all of the citys and towns that I have visited, this night market remains my favorite. There is plenty of shopping, largely handcrafted local hill tribe items. In many cases, you can see the goods being made in their booths. Generally things are cheaper than in Chiang Mai and there is a little more variety. The food court... More

The open air food stalls were fantastic. Very cheap to eat. You can have traditional satay or maybe push your gastronomic limits and have the deep fried insects! Very busy but a great atmosphere and good souvenir shopping. Doesn't really get going until after dark. and maybe use the rest room at your hotel before you go. The public toilets... More

Night bazars are a must. Very nice for shopping but the prices are sometimes higher than at other places in the city. Excellent restaurant with live music.

Nice night market. We went a few times and bought all sorts of nick nacks and gifts for friends back home. Cheaper than the night market in Chaing Mai.

We really enjoyed our meals here. The little hot pot for 70 B was yum. Also refreshing to see a couple of the clothing vendors selling something different than the usual stuff in all the stands across N Thailand.

there are two eating parts to this market the one with the roof has a menu and is more like a restaurant but has entertainment , the other is more like a Thai market and much cheaper. There are plenty of other places to buy clothes and souvenirs that are much cheaper

We walked over this market once. It is a tourist market with tons of things from China. We food part is just ok,... The market is terrible if you dislike tourist souveniers! My advice - go to the local market in town (during the day) - that one is maybe not that clean, but just great and the people are... More

I enjoyed a visit to the market. I watched a vendor carve soap and purchased a carving in a lovely case. There was a Thai Dance performance at the stage in the center of the market.

Try eating at the open-air restaurant at the Night Bazaar where free entertainment including Thai music and songs, ladyboy shows, traditional Thai dancing and western songs & music are offered nightly. The food is very tasty and prices are reasonable. Add in the cool pleasant evening temperatures of January/February and you could spend hours there (like us) just enjoying the... More
