I went along December 2016 Many Chinese stall holders and produce here aswell as Thai. It gets very busy inside and there is lots of good packed in. Some stalls same same produce and items but there is still some unique items. The item I was after wasn't sold at this market but still an OK market to walk around

Three floors of everything you can think of! From clothes & bags to meat & spices, even puppies! A lot of locals shop there so very authentic. We went around 4.30pm after reading that it closed at 6pm however a lot of stalls were closed or closing at this time so would recommend going earlier.

Although the place is quite big, the market has limited varieties. I went there with my family, and we only stayed for a hour. I personally prefer other markets. It is located in a building. Therefore, it might be a good idea to visit if it is raining outside.

This market is frequent by locals and goods are really comprehensive. However prices are not that competitive. Spend an hour touring the whole market.

We took a short walk to Chinatown and Wararot Market. Here you get a chance to see where and how the local people shop. Everything is available, from food staples like rice, lots of fresh vegetables, meats, spices, to clothing (not touristy t shirts, but things the locals would wear) to flowers, to fabrics. Lots of choices, lots to see.... More

If you need Thai Fisherman's pants or white pepper--this is a good place to come...the prices are fairly set and you can see that the locals are paying mostly what you're paying...you might be able to eke out a 10% discount...tons of stuff including luggage, household items, cooking supplies and basically everything. Check the north? side of the market to... More

Nowadays, just to look many tourists come to Chiang mai(or we can say full Thailand) we cant find local food, instead of that only banana crep or sticky mango rice. However, here you can find real Thai food, if you love try local food, just don't miss this place!

Still looking for a genuine ABERCROMBIE & FELCH windcheater.. Can't really miss these places.. something interesting is bound to cros your path if you keep your eyes... More

We arrived at the market at 9am. Many stalls were not opened yet. We found many interesting local product at a cheap price. We also found textiles shop on the ground floor selling many beautiful fabrics at a very reasonable price. We bought a few pieces of lace and cotton textiles. Strawberries were in season so there were many stalls... More

We were expecting a vast market with variety of specialized offerings at wholesale prices. What we got was a fairly mundane experience with many small shops with various offerings like fresh food, snacks, food stalls. We expected to see much more local stuff like textile, local culture items like wooden or umbrella items. Perhaps we didn't see all of it,... More
