Much better food options and more exciting/less crowded than the night bazaar! Some of our favourite were sweet potato balls, sugar toast, and some sort of dumpling soup we tried. The prices are a bit better than the night bazaar as well!

Lots of shops but it didn't have much variety as the night market at Chang Klan road. Food wise plenty of choices. Was just a mediocre market for me.

The Saturday night market sells more unique stuff than the daily night market. There are more handmade goods sold here. Be prepared to walk a lot because this night market is very interesting and big. It is recommended to reach around 6pm because most of the store owners would have set up by that time. And crowd start to gather... More

This market is very hectic! It seems like everyone in the vicinity is at the market on Saturday night. Some vendors are willing to haggle while others are not, so make sure you look around and find those with either low prices or willing to make a deal. Due to the overcrowded nature of this market, I would recommend going... More

Such a great atmosphere in this market, lots to see and buy... If only we had enough space in my backpack! From useful or cute to tacky and plain pointless you're bound to find something you want. The street food selection is amazing too. Standard market really but great atmosphere and a mix of locals and tourists. Don't forget that... More

This market was very crowded, typical of any market in that the same type of stalls are repeated. This is ok if you are into street markets. Most of the buskers were terrible.

The start of the markets on the main road around the old city is the best food area - amazing! The actual street itself is mainly trinkets, although half way down on the right side is another food area where we had a great pad thai with beer and it is a bit less crowded there. The actual main wua... More

This is an amazing market. Lots of local fare on display and plenty of food to try out. Prices I thought were very reasonable. There were a lot of streets with stalls and it seemed to go on forever. Highlight was when I asked a local policeman where the nearest ATM was and he took me there on the back... More

Visited early as was told it would get busy! The street is full of markets on either side, so much to see and buy! Very cheap and very cute souvenirs! Would recommend a visit! But to go early! I left at around 7pm and it was already getting pretty crowded!
