This night market stretch longer than the Sunday one, but located a bit outside the old city area. It sells almost everything: street foods, drinks clothing, bags, local handicraft, pottery, painting, etc. You'll find something that you like here. Do come early at about 5pm as it will get super crowded at night time.

Chiang Mai Saturday and Sunday markets stretch the length of Rachadamnoen Road with a couple of arteries on the left and right, often leading into food courts. Traders start to set up around 5pm and continue through to midnight. I arrived at 6pm to beat the crowds and queues for food. The easiest way to get this market, apart from... More

Arrived at 5pm as all the stalls were being set up. We strolled the length of this street market (about a mile long) in just over an hour. There's lots food stalls and this market has all sorts of clothes and souvenirs. As we were leaving at 6.30pm it was getting very busy so get there early

I really liked the Saturday Night Market. Sure, it was busy, there were a lot of people, but it was a great experience nonetheless. There was a great variety in stalls and a lot of different stuff to see. Also, a lot of different styles of street food.

This almost has a carnival atmosphere. Things to buy and eat. Games you can play as well. Lots of fun, but be warned, it can get very crowded. I would not bring small children

If you have a choice between Chiang Mai Night Market and Wualai Saturday Night Market, go to Wualai market. While the Chiang Mai Market seems to be focused on souvenirs, the Wualai Market also has a lot of street food. Also, at the South Gate of the Old City (where the Wualai Market begins), there's an outdoor eating area for... More

We got there around 5.30pm as we really dislike crowds. This market just goes on and on with so many little offshoots. Great food choices and very cheap. Noticed some vendors are now selling at set price with no haggling - I rather enjoy haggling which is a shame. Stopped off for a cheap massage then saw a sign for... More

I tend to avoid places ram packed, particularly when packed with tourists but this was worth seeing. Great atmosphere with a wide variety of stalls, plenty of places to eat and drink inexpensively on little courtyards and cul-de-sacs off the main street. The best bit is that while you may not pick up many bargains, most stall holders are not... More
