Went to the Saturday night market with friends after dinner for a change of pace from the night bazaar. It was very crowded and almost entirely food stalls. Maybe go before dinner...

The stalls here over a wide range of goods, your sort of standard stalls you would expect to see everywhere in Thailand. With one exception, its mayhem. It's soooo busy you can barely walk down the street to even look at the stalls let alone stop at one. So it's kind of pointless unless you like being barged into every... More

Smaller than Sunday walking street market but entertaining none the less. Getting more popular and crowded but some interesting craft stalls with all the usual trappings as to be expected.

The Saturday night market was so crowded we could barely move. The Sunday market was much better with new breathing room.

This walking street market is great if you love street food. You sample all varieties of savory and sweet food. Unfortunately, it can feel a bit claustrophobic because you must find your way past tons of tourists walking down the street with you. It is well worth your while to visit this market while in Chiang Mai.

To be honest the saturday walking street is pretty entertaining for tourist. But once is enough for alot of my friends including me. Most store would sell the same item and same type of stuff. Food there is mediocre tasted and i have some bad experience with the dim sum store (i bit into a rock inside of the dimsum).

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
