Wow, having just been to the busiest cities in Vietnam, Cambodia and Thailand, the Chiang Mai Saturday Market was just insane. The busiest and most colourful and diverse market, tons of people, but all mesmerised by what's on offer. Good people, great prices and amazing street food!!

Bits of everything including amazing and well priced food. But far too many people crowded on the street, often coming to a standstill. Maybe better to visit early or late.

This is an authentic street market and a must do while in Chiang Mai. Most of the stalls had local artist items, and is not like the other daily markets in Chiang Mai selling cheap items. It didn’t take me long to buy several items during my stroll, however the only downside was the mass of people who were shoulder... More

Too busy to enjoy - tons of people. I notice the same stalls over and over... the same stuff at all other markets. I would recommend going to the night bazaar instead where you can actually stop and enjoy the market.

Did this New Year's Eve, and was by far and away the best street stalls I encountered on our Thailand trip - genuinely great products at low low prices (rather than getting crap items for crap money) Soooo many delicious food options as well, many of which felt really clean (given that I tend to be suspicious of street food)

Depending on the time of the year. It can be packed with tourist and locals. It has just about everything you need and want. Local artist come and sell trinkets, shirts and insect earrings, etc...I wouldn't advise bringing little ones, just too cramped. If you gotta bring the kiddos, don't take the stroller. If you make it to the end... More

Even if you don't buy anything is great to walk the market just for the experience. Don't forget to "Haggle" for a good price (not "Barter" that means to swap for something) when you see a bargain that you fancy, start at half the price quoted and then meet in the middle somewhere.

A typical Asian street market and all it entails. Hundreds of stalls, fantastic street food and even a stall selling Thai made wine. Reminded me how poor the burger van version I visited in Darwin was.

super busy & crowded but that's why its called a Night Market. There were so many selection of food stalls to choose from. Food & drinks were very cheap and delicious. There were also a lot of vendors selling clothes, candle soaps, wooden coasters and a lot more souvenirs for good prices.

Same old, same old, very crouded and people jam packed if you fell over you would not be able to get up! not suitable if you have you children. Plenty of food stalls but the best are at the start of the road by the moat. Usual stalls selling everything from hand crafts to bags and scarfs. If you go,... More
