About
This bustling night market—possibly Chiang Mai’s largest—has various stalls selling street food, carvings, antiques, clothing, and even furniture. The market is a favorite spot among bargain hunters because prices are not fixed. This is also a great place to try spicy street food amidst other Northern Thai specialties. Best-selling food highlights include pad thai, mango sticky rice, and crispy spring rolls. Join a street food tour for insider tips on where the best bites are, but if you plan to just roam around here, don’t miss the nearby Kalare Night Bazaar as well. – Tripadvisor

    Day tours and night markets to fill your day!
    A few steps away from our hotel is the huge street market leading to the indoor bazaar where you will find good food, massage and spa services and many choices of your shopping interests from clothes to essential.oils, decors and so many more. There is a band and some singers to entertain you while you eat your favorite food. Night market starts at 6pm and have foreign exchange shops in case you need extra money to change. Shopping is great!

    Absolutely worth the visit!
    We had such a great time here and some of the BEST fruit smoothies. The night market is a vibrant and bustling place. There are countless stalls selling delicious local street food, crafts and clothing. The atmosphere is bustling with live music and it's a great place to soak in the local culture. Definitely worth a visit!

    CHIANGMAI NIGHT BAZAAR
    It is a touristy place with prices jacked up. But considering the exchange rate you may not find it an issue. Lots of food stalls selling local food and one or two selling Mexican western and Indian food. I tried chicken kao soy, fried fish with garlic and tom yum goong. The kao soy was delicious and so was the tom yum goong. We bought a plate of fried pork ribs with the chilli sauce. It was more like many times refried pork ribs. Tough and tasteless. The chicken briyani was a joke. Don't even consider it. It was yellow rice mixed up with some pieces of masala chicken and dhall gravy and heated up over a wok. It was more like satti soru. Lots of souvenir options to buy home.

    Not that I like shopping…
    …but wandering round here buying tat is quite fun. You’ll see the same stuff again and again but if you’re patient and insistent then you’ll probably find some stuff you really like! Also, don’t haggle unless you really can’t afford the prices. By definition, you’re a rich tourist…

    Overrated
    Honestly, everyone said this was a must see in Chiang Mai, and it was good to see, I guess. I didn’t think it was worth all the hype. Just a big flea market. The best thing about it was that people weren’t pushy and just left you alone. If you want their wears, they’re there, otherwise they just stay out of your business, something I didn’t experience anywhere else in Thailand. Most of the wears are exactly the same at every booth you go to, which is annoying and feels like you’re being lied to. Don’t tell me your bracelets are handmade when the table three down has exactly the same one. Bought a pretty ‘handcrafted’ bracelet, only to turn the thing over and see in big letters ‘made in China’. Yeah, handcrafted in China. Cool. Every single place in this market makes you pay to use the restroom. Only 5 baht or so usually, but you can avoid this by going in a side entrance of any restaurant and acting like you just came from a table. They usually won’t stop you. So if you want elephant pants, the same 6 Thai T-shirts they sell everywhere, or the same bracelets they sell everywhere at 25+ different booths, stop by here. Bartering can only get you so far when the wears are garbage. Still, good to experience, and good to never bother with again.

    How bazaar
    You need to have your walking feet to cover all the stalls at the Night Bazaar. We did buy quite a lot of items and were able to barter as the sellers supposedly had a fixed price - haha. Obviously, the stalls did get repetitive but we were pleased with our ‘bargains’ There is also a very good food market with live music.

    Huge!
    Amazing experience- absolutely vast, I have never experience markets as big as the ones in chiang mai. Whilst this is very touristy, it’s so worth going to, there is something for everyone food and drink wise, with a live band too. On stalls, you’ll find lots of the usual stuff but also some great handcrafted items and art. I’d particularly suggest this for groups of friends, as there’s plenty of seating and something to please everyone. 4 stars only because there’s so many repeats of items being sold (elephant trousers etc)

    Nice area, but…
    This was not one of my favorite bazaars but it was not horrible. I guess you get used to the fantastic night markets and bazaars in Chiang Mai and it makes us spoiled. There are stalls and such but I didn’t find it any better than other night markets and bazaars. There were a lot of Indian stalls and people asking if they could make me a suite.

    Cheap and remarkably good quality goods
    The Night Bazaar in Chiang Mai is extensive with many stalls selling a huge variety of items. I bought several fake designer T-shirts that were very cheap and turned out to be very good quality. You can buy clothing, leather goods, luggage, food, souvenirs... You are expected to bargain - never pay the first price asked. Make sure you have cash as credit cards are not widely expected.

    A good place to stop by if looking for some souvenirs, but do not jump on something the first time you see it. Many stalls sell the same merchandise and the prices and quality vary. Almost everyone gets will haggle a bit as well.

This is probably the biggest night market in Chiang Mai, although it also seems to merge into other night markets including the sheltered Kalare Night Market.

There's hundreds of stalls, mostly selling the usual stuff you can find in almost any other Thai market. There are some gems there though. Several of the stalls belong to artisans who make souvenir items themselves.

Fantastic street food and tons of souvenirs. The market covers several blocks. Many of the shops offer similar items so it's easy to haggle for best pricing when you compare items from shop to shop. We went here three nights in a row for dinner and browsing the shops.

It's a huge market with lots to eat and see. You have the option to get street food or eat at proper restaurants. Allow minimum 3 hours if you prefer to eat at a proper restaurant.

This bustling night market is well worth a visit when you're in Chiang Mai. From a vast selection of food available, to locally produced souvenirs, it is temptation gone wild!
The market spills out onto the street with hundreds of stalls lining the main road, so allow yourself at least 3 hours to browse and eat. Be adventurous!

Wow, I can't believe they do this every night. So cool. And there is wheeling and dealing. Loved it. Food, drink, and whatever you could think of.
