Fantastic food and really the only place open in Pai at night time. Found a poster for Sak Yant Pai and that was truly the most amazing experience I had in Pai.

For some reason Trip Advisor considers this traditional Thai Tattoo as a 'harmful activity' and won't list them. But well worth visiting
Walkijg street is open at night from 6-9pm and is packed with very reasonably priced food. Amazing variety. This is also where you get tours and motorcycles.

It’s not a huge walking street but such a fantastic atmosphere. The street has such a great vibe, great shops and stall stalls for clothes and quirky souvenirs. The bars all have happy hours and you can find great live music in many of them.

I had the best tasting street food here in Pai throughout my trip to Thailand. Great evening s and endings to fun filled days.

If your considering visiting the North you must stop in Pai.

Good variety of food vendors from salads to Western fare and traditional Thai dishes. Lots for vegetarians and carnivores. Gyoza queen! Interesting sweets. The stores along the route are pretty much open the whole time so you can do your souvenirs or trip bookings in between noshing. You will likely have to wade thru a lot of people and, fairly often, motorbikes coming through, but I've seen much worse. If you make the trek to Pai you'll definitely enjoy dinnertime here!! Advice: try to hit between 6-9 because people will start running out of food or closing as you get closer to 10.

This is the place you will probably bump into people that stay at your hostel/hotel. This street has amazing food for vegetarian and non vegetarian people, it has various types of vendors on the street with dishes from around the world. Do not forget to try dessert after, there are soo many options! Later me and my friend hit up a bar on the street where we made a tourist friend who lived and worked in Pai now. He showed us amazing places throughout the night, including a after hours party where everyone gathered very late like the locals to hangout. Thank you Clay for keeping us safe and showing us that adventurous night

This is more like an international street food paradise along the walking street. There are variety of foods, which is from Thai, Chinese, western, Indian to Japanese sushi stall.

Visited 2 nights, Sunday & Monday. Find Sunday night is better than Monday because some of the bistro / restaurants were closed on Monday night.

Overall, this street is more fun than Chiang Mai night market (too crowed) or Mae Hong Son night market (less variety of food ) .

Like their gyoza, instant bake sticky rice black sesame & tangerine juice on the street.

A buzzy little area in such a chilled out patch of Northern Thailand. Amazing street food.. Quirky bars and cafe's.. but best of all.. there seems to be some fantastic live music in every bar along the street! Definitely worth heading here for an evening whilst in Pai!

We went there on a family vacation and my wife wanted to check out walking Street so we went there with the whole family and there was about 4 blocks deep and 6 blocks long of stalls every night we were there for the 3 days 4 days we were there and this little town is famous for foreign hippies that come there that camping. But what really surprised me about this walking Street was there's a lot of Muslim food there which is kind of refreshing. So I would definitely recommend this walking Street while you're in town.

Everything you wish for in a tourist haven is here. Food, bars, trinkets, etc. Spend no more than one walk through to say you’ve done it. Not much authentic Thai about the street.

Unlike many other night markets throughout Thailand, the market in Pai has some different products from the usual tourist rubbish.

Walk around and enjoy the atmosphere, the colours, the smells, the sounds.

Apart from the permanent shops which stay open at night, the market is full of stalls offering an array of clothing, bags, souvenirs, and local tribal artefacts and woven cotton cloth in an interesting array of colours and patterns.

I bought a beautiful Karen cotton shawl for a friend when I get home, and a good quality white cotton shirt for myself. The shawl was 140 baht and the shirt 250 baht, both of which I thought were bargains.

There are also stalls selling Thai snack food, like satay, bbq corn and some Thai desserts.

I live near Pai. This destination is so fortunate to have escaped the big threat C- Virus. This area had a handful of people treated and released a few weeks ago so we have become relatively relaxed and looking forward to the lifting of restrictions
imposed during LOCKDOWN.

KEEP AN EYE ON PAI WALKING STREET: we’ll be ready to see you when you return.
The restaurants and bars are fabulous and the whole place has a festival feel.
There’s live music and d.j. too.
Don’t be afraid to come here when international travel is up and running again.
Guesthouses are very affordable near walking street and most provide a hearty breakfast included in price.
See you there!!!
