The centre of Chiang Rai has a limited choice of things to do?There is only so much eating and drinking, even if the food and drink is relatively inexpensive. A walk through the night market is an experience but probably more for the first time visitor to Chiang Rai. The goods and handicrafts on sale are targeted on the tourist... More

The market and street where they sell things are rather touristic. And they don't have anything that I can't buy in Bangkok. But the foodcourt is nice. And a good place for a meal. Or a couple of beers. There is also a stage with music.

We ate here. Lots of choices with fried food plus snails and cockle shells. The markets were good. I bought a beautiful piece of Thai material. Reasonable prices but I'm not a good haggler!!

Definitely a place to be seen, interesting if you stay over a few days in Chiang Rai, probably boring for local residents. Smaller, but not less interesting, than its counterpart in Chiang Mai. Lots of handicrafts, some of them worth buying (and obviously discussing the price with a vengeance), some items were really beautiful. I would be more careful in... More

This night market has a much less touristy feeling than both Chiang Mai night markets (regular and Sunday). The focus is less cheap souvenirs like wooden elephants, and more cheap t-shirts with cool designs, bags, children's clothing etc. But the real highlight is definitely the food court at the end. Featuring excellent Thai street food, from deep fried sea food... More

Very small night market and selling cheap stuffs. I just tried a local dessert right in front entrance but that's all. Only spent 10 minutes there.

The Chiang Rai Night Bazaar is a must for anyone on a stopover in this town. The markets stalls have what you would expect - handycraft, jewellery, carvings. Not bad but not really special either. The food court however is an experience. Live entertainment - from traditional to drag - is really fun, even if the shows are sometimes very... More

I really enjoyed the experience. The entertainment was varied. There were dancers both traditional and temple dancers. Many different types of bands and singers were presented. The food court had many interesing choices. Several of the stalls sold "hotpots". It was a fun change for food. There is a variety of foods that make for varied tastes. We even tried... More

This is one of the best bazaars I've visited. There were quite a lot of beautiful, hand-crafted items for sale among some more ordinary manufactured goods. Also many food stalls, though I only had a coconut.

I never really spent much time looking at the actual market, just the outdoor food court. Most nights, there was live music or performances of some sorts on. The choice of food is excellent and everything I ate was very nice. The prices are good too. As well as food, there is a bar so you can spend plenty of... More
