Easily spotted along Phaholyothin road near the bus terminal, the Night Bazaar is a great place for souvenirs or some live music. There’s also a large open-air restaurant here for an after-dinner snack or drink. Follow your ears and listen for the music to find your way there. Remember to bargain, naturally, especially if you're looking to pick up more... More

Small, so everyone's in one place. Nice tourist shops, local shops, and great array of food stalls as well as shows and restaurants. Great for a few relaxing beers.

This is an ok place. The marke is small compared to similar markets in Chiang Mai, Bangkok, Luang Prabang. The typical Thai tourist fare is on sale, not much special although there are some nice hill tribe dresses. Bargaining is expected of course. There is an indoor Thai style restaurant which is overpriced and doesn't offer much choice, and an... More

Find super cheap and fresh sushi, hot pot, fruit juices, seafood, and so much more for around a dollar...go to side with metal tables, sure entertainment is of lesser quality but it is free! Market is very good, you can bargain, and nice selection of goods, may not go on for kilometers on end but goods not repeated in general!... More

An enjoyable night although we found the market lacked the variety and atmosphere of the Chiang Mai Night Bazaar. What we did like was the food court as it enabled us to get a bit of a variety of things from different stalls. Not as geared to tourists as some markets but perhaps that made it better.

This night bazaar appeared to be for Thais mostly but can be enjoyed by everyone. My group and I kinda enjoyed the minimal tourist and enjoyed the great street food. My friends even tried bugs for the first time. But the biggest plus was how ridiculously cheap everything is and it was the cheapest market I visited in Thailand.

When we were there they also had some live music on on the stage next to the food area. There is a range of things for sale here but after spending a lot of time at MBK in... More

There are two night bazaars in Chiang Rai both within 100m of each other, one for the tourist, one for Thai's. Thai one is best for Thai food & cheap beer but they have recently banned smoking [ American influence ] The western Bazaar is lot more expensive but you can get pasta etc..& you can smoke. Live music in... More

The Night Bazaar is conveniently located in the midst of the tourist area of Chiang Rai, right by the bus station. Lot of little shops that sell Thai bags, wallets, jewlery, and clothing. It is definitely rather touristy stuff, but still fun. There a two stages that usually have some sort of live musical number going on that range from... More
