In the four weeks I’m in Chiang Mai I have visited Warorot market a couple of times per week. It is such an amazing place to stroll around. You can easily spend some hours here. The perfect place when you need something: they sell everything...More
It is a nice market in Chiangmai downtown where you should not miss. There are some public transportation available also. This place should can find variety of foods and fruits, fresh, processed, and ready-to-eat stuffs.
My husband and I visited Warorot Market last February. I made several fabric and clothing purchases and my husband bought a few coins. Check out the quality of the merchandise carefully as it's not all what it appears to be. However, you can find excellent...More

This market definitely isn't for everyone, but if this sort of thing is your cup of tea (as it is mine), then don't miss it. This is certainly more of a "locals" market and that's a big part of the fun. Between the inside area...More
A must visit market in Chiangmai. They sell a lot of stuff in this market (local food, clothing, cutlery, vegetables, nest, etc) and a great way to experience the way of life of a local. Northern sausages is a good takeaway gift for family and...More
This is very large marke with both food and other sections. The whole place is nicely organized and clean and it has s an opportunity to see - or taste- most of the local products. Only negative is that most of the food, except for...More

For silk, you need to go San Kamphaeng Road. Its a stretch of a few miles right outside the city but technically in Chiang Mai. It's sort of a highway; you can't walk it - you need a driver (We hired a driver for the day). The Road has 3 silk stores and many other better quality crafts (lacquer, wood etc.). They have both fabric and finished items. You can get a suit made. Most stores also have the factory where the goods are made which we thought were interesting. We went to all 3 stores to purchase silk for my daughter. We did not find any decent quality silk in Chiang Mai, other than than on San Kamphaeng Road. The local markets have low end fabrics and they did not appear to be silk, even when it was advertised as silk. Good luck.
Warorot Market is only open during the day. It is great for street food! The city is a shuk so basically there is shopping/market all over. I recommend Saturday night Weekend market AND the Sunday night Weekend market... More
Warorot Market is only open during the day. It is great for street food! The city is a shuk so basically there is shopping/market all over. I recommend Saturday night Weekend market AND the Sunday night Weekend market (different streets for each market). They had a more crafts (not a lot) than other typical markets. We bought a hand painted canvas we are getting framed and some other items. The "night market" which is every night (by Le Meredien hotel and Hard Rock Cafe) is mostly nick nacks.

Hi Trevor, This looks like a whole lot of cut and pastes. Day three works. The others do not. You have about 6 days of things to do. The flight of the Gibbons is about 1 hour out of the city So if you do this that will be about it for the day. Chok Dee
