It is a functional market so it’s interesting to see what the locals buy (cloths, household goods, vegetables and fruit) but there are no arts and crafts and not many “Hill tribe” people when I went. They have great local food stores.

I go there once per year, buy fruit, clothes, toys. Sure interesting for tourists, but if you go to Ban aronatai, some 40km up the road just on the Burmese border you will find a market that's 10 times more fascinating. That market is on...More

The Tuesday morning market is a nice way to spend a couple of hours. It is a proper market and not geared towards tourists in the same way that those in Chiang Mai are. The fruit on sale is fantastic and very reasonably priced. We...More

This is a market for locals where local produce and cheap clothing are mainly sold. There are no products such as local handicrafts that would interest tourists. The only thing of interest is possibly seeing the hilltribe costumes in the area.

I like Thai Markets and this oine takes up most of the High Street through central Chiang Dao. Well worth taking time out to walk round it. Once a week on a Tuesday. It's hot and dusty - there are very few tourist trinkets here...More

Having wasted a lot of time looking at "authentic" hill tribe crafts in the tourist markets of Chiang Mai and Chiang Rai, I really found this market enjoyable. It is simply a real market where local people (including the hill tribes) come to buy and...More
