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

I have never been surrounded by so much cheap tat in all my life! However… across the road, near the motorbike parking corner… a bar that sells Grey Goose at 60p a shot!!! Result, sat outside, watched the madness go past, the police directing crazy traffic and families of six on one motorbike. One of those things that have got... More

The night bazaar offers a variety of food.There is a section for visitors that would like waiter service and one for the locals who would like to pick there own food. There is free entertainment in both sections and you can pick up some cheap souvenirs in the stalls surrounding the area. The food and drinks are reasonably cheap. Try... More

I tend to groan when I hear the words, 'night market...but this is actually very good. Some unusual gifts and souvenirs can be bought. Good selection of foods and passable entertainment But the boys bringing drinks will only serve locals...farangs have to go and collect your own from the bar ...don't know why...it has always been a puzzle to me...

This night market is much less commercial than the one in Chiang Mai, and so it is much more authentic as well. It is quite easy to see the whole market in one night, and you can catch a show of local talent there as well. Performers sing or perform on the stage in the main square while locals (mostly)...

This is a great market and has amazing food. The goods are also great and lots of authentic Thai wares. There are also lots of entertainment and you can sit there the whole evening. Great and fun market, we will be back there. I think all the tourists vista this market, but they are just a hand full.

Not as busy as the night market in Chiang Mai, however it has all those souvenir shops that you would expect and so many places to eat, l found it cheaper than the market in Chiang Mai and the stall holders were very friendly

Great place for purchasing souvenirs and gifts at a good price. Scarfs, jewelry, silk robes and handmade cards were all good finds for me.
