Good mostly for souvenir items and if you want to do some haggling. It's your average market end of the day though overpriced (we haggled in Thai and look Thai and even then the asking price was silly). It does get a little repetitive stall wise since multiple stalls are selling the same goods so don't bother for more than... More

Went to the night market, sat market and Sunday market at Chiang Mai and also the night market at Pai, this one in Chiang Rai is the most boring one. Once I walked through the first few stalls, I could feel that things are all the same - made in China. Nothing interested me. I stayed at Chiang Rai one... More

I wasn't impressed by this market, just the same old stuff, very expensive and not particularly high quality or unusual. It was not very large, I also thought the available food was dull and uninteresting, mainly restricted to fried stuff that went well with beer, it didn't seem like authentic Thai to me. The insects and bugs for sale once... More

The food court at this night marker was really fun. Booths line a large open square with seating in the middle. Sun dried beef with deep fried kaffir lime leaves was heavenly-and a dish I had not seen anywhere else in Thailand. Hot pots, pad thai noodles, sushi, fried insects, fruit shakes, beer, etc. So cheap you can try a... More

More authentic and much more variety than Chiang Mai and so much more pleasant than weekend market in Bangkok. Many handicrafts to choose from at excellent prices. The food is not to be missed either!

The night bazaar is not too big, selling more or less the goods you find in Chiang Mai too. However, some of the things are quite cheap, cheaper than Chiang Mai too. All in all, I would say... if you want to spend time seeing things that you probably can't find back home, this could be the place to go.... More

This woman is not professional. She did a tattoo on my wife's chest which is not straight. When my wife told her about it she wanted another 500 baht. Why she do bad to someone's body. She ask for money because she knows the girl has foreign boyfriend. This tattoo shop not to be trusted. Bad bad woman - fukin... More

The worst market we've ever gone to. All of the goods were imported from China. Same things stall to stall. Perhaps a weekend market would be better. Chiang Mai market is sooo much better.

The Night Bazaar is like every other bazaar in rural Thailand. Very predictable in the products and somewhat boring. However, we went to the food court (not the covered one) and at Kiosk 6 had the best pad thai in egg. A bottle of Singha beer and our night was complete. Delicious

There are several food and Thai dance show every night. I like it. And also hand made products of Thailand and hill-tribe's products.
