It is essentially a requirement for tourists in Chiang Mae to go to the night bazaar. It is very large with countless eateries and stalls selling typical and mostly cheap Thai goods. Most people seem to be tourists, not locals. It is a lot of fun, but not the best venue to buy things.

We were specifically looking for handicraft and similar articles. There was a huge range of these items are very affordable prices - one needs to bargain of course (politely). The one downside to the night market (on the outside) is that the temp carts that set up shop really cramp walking space and people are unable to move if any one person stops at these carts to look at or buy something. Otherwise, it is a lovely experience - including the variety of street food options that are available.

Open from 6pm-12am. Lots of vendors. Some good deals but be prepared to bargain hard. Huge number of massage places. Didn't try any. 15-20 food stalls. Generally 40-80B for Thai noodles or rice dishes. More for fish/prawns, meats but still way less than elsewhere. A fun evening.

It was way too crowded for us to truly enjoy the experience. There were people pushing around you everywhere that you simply couldn't stop to look let alone buy.

The eating places were also full of people.


The Sunday walking street market is a much better option.
