The Saturday night walking market is awesome. It is near Chiang Mai Gate. Its incredibly busy as the streets are closed to traffic. One hint is to walk a couple blocks into the market and the crowds thin out. Its a great place top buy souvenirs. There are lots of places to buy street food and have a sit down... More

So many stalls that seemed to just go on forever! Fantastic variety but lots of the same as well. Loved haggling, loved the kind nature of the stall owners. You have to do this when you are visiting. Be aware - gets VERY busy around 7pm.

Saturday night market is the authentic market that live up to the true spirit of Thailand's night market. It's a road down length but the stalls extends out to the left and right like a shape of a tree branch. There are many street's food here that other weekdays night market doesn't have. It's a pity they close early like... More

We had a really fun time walking the night market- there are tons of vendors selling everything under the sun. Got a few cute gifts, ate some grilled squid, and tried ginseng wine! Loved it!

Don't leave without seeing this market that is tucked into a street closed to cars and slightly off the main road. Complete feast for the eyes and an exercise in bartering. Huge amount of vendors selling ALL kinds of crafts and art and food. SO MUCH FUN!!!! Be aware that apparent side streets that look like they lead to the... More

After having visited multiple markets, I can say with confidence that this is quite possibly the best market to go to! Everything is decently priced (unlike the night bazaar) and laid out mostly along one street. It does get extremely crowded so show up early!

I walked out to the furthest end of the market via the main road so I could walk back down through the market slowly and end up back near the Old City gate. The market is relatively quiet at 6pm but soon picks up when the sun goes down and the lights come on. I'm glad I went early as... More

I have been to many walking street markets in Thailand and other parts of Asia and am somewhat inured to their mediocrity, as they all seem to offer the same collection of tourist trash and pirated knockdown copies. I was therefore pleasantly surprised. Yes, this night market has all of the above. But it also has original artworks, stalls selling... More

Lots of hand made items, clothing, shoes and food and cheaper then night bizarre. Some stunning temples down the side streets of the market. There is a great variety of food and things to buy, and of course interesting sights to take in. But it was just too crowded to enjo
