this is a pretty intense market. very crowded and teeming with interesting foods and items. easy to get lost! definitely a cool experience. a bit less touristy than the night bazaar.

This is not a tourist spot. Keep that in mind when eating. Great place to wander and shop. The food area is a blast, watching people queue up for their favorites. It's easy to get lost, so keep your bearings. You can find everything under the sun here at prices well below what you will get at the tourist oriented... More

A typical, albeit well ordered, market. As usual, here one can (as many locals appear to be doing), shop for fresh foods, or simply find that inexpensive item found in many budget stores.

The good thing about Warorot is that the prices are good, especially when compared to the night bazaar. This is because its a market for the locals. Asking prices are maybe 50-150 Baht over actual price, as compared to the Night Bazaar where I bought a suitcase for 1800 baht after being charged 3500. The basement floor has the ethnic... More

Must come and visit this place. Lots of thing to see. Ground floor, majority sell food items. 1st & 2nd floor sell clothing, bags and shoes. There is also a butchery area which is separated from all this. Reminder, need to be cautious when you receive the change after purchasing any item. Need to count and make sure it correct... More

The market is clean. If you want to buy those textiles, hill tribe clothes, trinkets, purses, bags, indigo clothes, shirts, packed dried fruits, etc that you see at the Night Bazaar or night markets, THIS is the place to buy them cheaply as it is where the locals shop. There are also other shops in its environs that sell nice... More

You can buy almost anything at Warorot Market, a real mixed bag of everything. There are fresh/dried fruit - vegetables - flowers, butchery and bakery items, herbs, condiments, clothing, shoes, cosmetics, jewellry, lacquerware, silks, hemps, handicrafts, ceramics, wood carvings, beauty supplies, household appliances, electronic gadgets, sunglasses, watches, souvenirs, and fireworks, just to name a few. It's Chiang Mai Chinatown.

Walked to warorot market after breakfast. We choose to walk as we are staying at Dusit Princess. Many things can be found and cheaper compare to night markets price.

Having been recommended to visit Warorot Market by the travel agency at Raming Lodge, we made our way there for an hour today - before leaving for the airport so it was kind of last-minute. And we did not regret coming to Kad Luang because compared with that other popular market near our hotel, this one caters more to the... More
