Millions of locals

Definitely one of the cheaper markets as many locals but their cloth and other stuff here. You can also get a good massage and dance!

I enjoyed a huge variety of delicious street food and beer, while the wife was shopping along Walking Street. The all sorts of food vendors, with an amazing variety of local dishes which makes this a great spot to get your food on. We had tried many different stands and everything was really delicious as well as the beer.

Worth a visit if in Chiang Rai on Saturday. A wide array of shopping, much of which is priced so haggling and getting ripped off is minimal. Food options are great and varied. Better than other markets visited in Thailand.

This is an absolute must-see if you're here for a Saturday night. The clothing/knick knacks are the same as most markets but the food section of these markets is AMAZING!! You need to see it to believe it :) we taste tested at plenty of the food stalls and everything is delicious and super cheap. We couldn't move by the... More

Thailand feels like the happiest place in the world. These markets feel like a celebration of Saturday night with dancing and music and fabulous foods to explore through. There are many of the hilltribe villagers sitting right there making baskets, weaving bags, selling food. A divine must do if in Chiang Rai on a Saturday.

A very large walking street with plenty to look at and buy. Just about everything you can think of, and more, is here. A must visit if you are in Chiang Rai.

I been there with my hubby and our 3 gals...too many choices of food and drink, virtually can't try at once. Very nice dance and dine area at the centre of the event. Do some shopping after the nice local dinner, people here are very naive and honest. Not polluted as those in Bangkok.

We were there during the CNY holidays! While there were many stalls selling almost everything you need (and dont need!). We could hardly walk because there were so many people. However, we got to buy some nice local souvenirs at a very reasonable price. A nice place to kill time.

If you are in Chiang Rai over a weekend and enjoy a wide variety of street food and shopping, then Walking Street is the place to visit. Lots of food vendors, with an amazing variety of local dishes make this a fun place to graze and dine. We must have tried a dozen different stands and everything was really good.... More

This was amazing I didn't think it would ever stop it was like I was walking for miles and miles, and I really didn't see lots of the same stuff. The fashion changed or the t-shirts changed it was never really the same thing twice. The food, well when you came across someone selling something it was always going to... More
