We spent our Saturday night there. The food court is really good and the open air restaurant full of locals. Music was playing all evening, including travesty. The quality of the food is excellent and it's very cheap. We had for examples plate full of spring rolls for 20 bath. Also other Thai food is very good and needs to... More

Chiang Rai Night bazar is a cool place. The Food is allright, most Traders are easy-going. Most of the Merchandise on offer was same-as-everywhere, I didn't see a lot of original stuff. But then,maybe I just looked at the wrong stalls!

If I could, I would give a negative score. It's just a crowdy bazaar with cheap modern rags. It can not be compared to the other night markets in South Eastern Asia (like Luang Prabang in Laos for example, where they sell tons of original handicrafts). Yes, you can buy fake Adidas or Chanel here or even plastic watches, but... More

What I liked about this market is that the vendors were not pushy at all. You could view their products at your leisure, so it was a pleasure to roam around the market. It seemed almost every stall was different, so if you want a product you should buy it when you see it. Usually the prices are marked, but... More

Much easier to navigate and with a better, more concentrated, choice of local products and crafts than Chiang Mai, we almost missed this, deciding it would be "just another night market" of which we had encountered several already on this trip. We were glad we made the effort to get a bus into town. It was relaxing to wander freely... More

The night bazaar in Chiang Rai is definitely the best place to go in the evening. A good collection of stalls for present shopping, just grab a very cheap ice cream or fruit shake and have a walk around. The food area with live entertainment is fantastic, with a huge selection at very cheap prices. Make sure you go to... More

Every week I love to go here and have a thai style hot pot for 100 baht, have some beer and listen to the free concert. It great to see different type of people here with many tourists.

Easily accessed by tuk tuk from our hotel and great for window shopping and dining..The food is cheap and well prepared. Not all of it though is particularly suited to unadventurous travellers. Lots of entertainment and loads of typical tourist trinkets .

I have visited more than 20 similar style markets/bazaars all over Asia, and I would rate this one in the top 2!! It is not too busy/crowded, an interesting variety of local products, however if you seek out the smaller out of the way stalls you will find some more curious items and made to order products. Such as Care's... More

Different kind of night market compared to the ones in Chiang Mai and Bangkok. Not that busy, cool and less touristy stuff! Also very cheap and lots of local handmade leather stuff! A must go!
