This market is a must - gave me an insight to all things local - from food, snacks, nick-knacks, clothes and many other items. For the adventurous foodies, try some of the local sausages and pork dishes. They also have lots of tea and flavored local dry snack items. You will need no more than 30 to 45 minutes -... More

This is my opinion of a great place to understand the local vibe. It is not touristy. The food selections are reasonable priced and vast, possibly more that the street markets. The section along the riverfront is all flowers, and if you walk 15 feet in from the street you can watch them hand crafting many of the floral arrangement... More

Lots of different buildings and stalls compriose this market which is atypical of Thai markets. Lots of fake stuff and also some local stuff too, and also those hard to find things at a decent price. There is no directory as such so you have to ask around if you want something specific. Or you can spend a long time... More

This night market is approximately 15 mins walk from the Chiang Mai Night Bazaar. It is hidden in a quiet corner at the other end of the road where only the locals know. The stuff there are relatively cheaper than in the Night Bazaar. You can get all you need in that night market, from fashion wears to toys, pets... More

True street food can be found here. You will watch them make it and get it hot. A lot of what's being cooked and prepared is foreign, there's no calorie count or labels. Go with your gut. If you're not sure of prices watch a local buy before you commit. If you're intimidated by large crowds this is not the... More

Interesting place to buy foods and ingredients for Asian cooking. They also have gifts, decor, home goods,etc. you can negotiate by pointing to an item, they will show you the price on a calculator. Deals can be made .... Buy more than one and the price drops.

A good place to see the variety of local snacks and sweets. From sweet and sour dried fruits to deep fried anchovies. Lots of local clothings at reasonable price. Outside the market are rows of shops that sell cheap local clothes and make up. The pharmacies have reasonable prices.

It was because that there was a local Thailand market and including many different kinds of shop such as Thailand fruit shop, local clothe shop, meat shop, food court, shoe shop.... More

Traditional Thai markets, wife range of clothes, fresh fruits, meats, food stalls, and more. You are free to stroll the markets and check out the goods without being harassed, you can try your hand at bartering but also lots of fixed (and cheap) priced items. Our girls are going to an international daycare here and they were celebrating Yi Peng... More

This is where the Thai people come to buy almost everything. The food market on the corner with everything from fruit to fish (you will never forget the smells), but this is where the locals shop. A block over is the fabric street where you can buy any bolt of fabric, especially silk. A must see for a true cultural... More
