On my map it looked like this market was about 5 blocks but I walked for 2 hours and didn't see 1/2 of it! Lots of food options, artisans painting, leather lacing, doing lacquer work, doing pottery, playing flutes, etc. Lots to see and do and visit the Silver Temple on the way they had performers dancing and drummers and...

One of the most interesting and eclectic street markets I've ever visited - but that being said, worthwhile and would recommend, especially if you can pair it with a visit to the Silver Temple (Wat Sri Suphan). This is a great option for food especially - the Sunday night market was harder to get real "dinners" since it was much... More

As everyone advised, go early. The market can become overwhelming and repetitive of chochquie stands. The food was fantastic. Mango sticky rice is the best thing since sliced bread. For reals, do yourself a favor and eat some!!! It was a very fun experience but 1/2 way through i was ready to get out. The unfortunate part is entrance and... More

It is the best maket, i personally think. Although some items are more expensive here than night bazzar, such as bags, it is a good place for bargain. Just ensure walking through the market before purchasing anything. Women pursues were cheaper at the store at the front (100bat) rather than one in the middle of the market (145bat).

Don't miss to visit this market if you get the chance. Nice and peaceful atmosphere, and authentic foods to try at every corner. Make sure you see the Silver Temple there too.

This is the biggest market in Chiang Mai and seems to have grown and grown over the years! Don't go if you don't like crowds, noise and bustle for there is plenty of all that to abundance. Driving or walking along the road during the day or any other night except for Saturday will totally unprepared you for the metamorphosis... More

My first visit was in 2015 and i quite enjoyed it. So when I went again December 2016 I was looking forward to it. But this year it wasn't as good. Way to many people there,quite often when walking down the main street the crowds would come to a halt and you would end up just standing there for a... More

IMHO this market was the best in Chiang Mai. We went in there at ca. 8PM and out at 10. The markets generally offer the same products, but this is slightly cheaper and more convenient as long as it takes part mainly on 1 street only. Recommended!

The market was packed the night we visited. Lots of stalls with lots of wares, but it took forever to get up an down the different lanes. Lots of touristy things on sale, but as others have noted lots of Thai food if you are willing to take a chance and eat from the vendors. Entertainment at one of the... More
