“Disappointing”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 April 2014

Night market was disappointing. We enjoyed both the Saturday and Sunday markets much better! Although this market is mostly outside, the road is not closed off and the sidewalk market is very narrow...really not worth visiting.

“Lots of great people watching and cheap goods”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 February 2014

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.

“Good bazaar”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 February 2014

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.

“Lots of vendors. Good cheap food stalls.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 February 2014

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.

“Crowded and loud”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 February 2014

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.
