Night Bazaar, Chiang Mai

#1 of 77 in Shopping in Chiang Mai
Flea Market Shopping
Take an evening stroll along Night Bazaar, a famous shopping experience in Chiang Mai. Though the street looks fairly ordinary by day, at dusk the whole atmosphere of the place changes. See the independent vendors set up their stalls and lay out their colorful, eclectic wares--from handicrafts and clothes to toys and DVDs. Head into the throng of visitors from all over the world as they try to get the best prices for the things that catch their eye. A lively and memorable cultural experience, even those leaving empty-handed will feel they gained something from their time.

  • Despite having very market around (but always the same) personally I find the food the best on the market. A lot of variety, with quality.

  • Closes rather early. Items are repetitive and slightly higher priced. Recommend to head to either Sunday Night Bazaar, or Chiang Mai University Bazaar. Street food was scarce as well. Toilets are difficult to locate. But placed in city centre. Easy to access.
  • You can certainly spend an evening walking around looking at all the stalls but the vendors do sell the same stuff. Although you can also sit down and eat in one of the areas that also has live bands. You can haggle for a bargain although keep in mind the quality is low. I didn't want to go anymore then once but I would certainly say it's worth having a nose.
  • Super vibrant, music everywhere, lots of locals and backpackers. 100% recommend if you're looking to meet some people or just have some fun
  • This is the best food place in Chiang Mai. There must be about 30-40 food but options offering varying cuisine. The food is very affordable and offer live music at the venue. The setting is magical. Been eating dinner out here for my entire 3 night stay in Chiang Mai, and still could carry on for another week.
  • Nice place with many different foodstands from all over the world. Very tasty. Also live musik and some vendors of random goods

Where to stay in Chiang Mai

While visiting Chiang Mai, keep in mind that the old town district and the area surrounding the famous night market offer both boutique (relatively expensive) and backpacker (relatively inexpensive) options. The riverside neighborhoods boast exclusive hotels and resorts, where comparatively pricey rooms come with good views and extensive facilities.
