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.

  • A big bazar but full with tourists Please argue for the price... And live all the shopping to your last day because its full with great souvenirs. 
  • The Night Bazaar can be a fun night out. We like taking time to look around at all the stall areas that have all kinds of items such as cotton clothes, hand carvings made of tree bark, monkey wood, te...  read more »
  • Having visited several markets in Thailand this was far from my favourite. It's definitely got the feel of catering for tourists and indeed we saw many more Europeans there than we have in any other p...  read more »
  • So here's the deal: there are markets every night of the week in Chiang Mai, and they are almost all trying to get the attention of turists. That said, if you are willing to haggle or bravely walk away, you don't have to feel riiped off or pressured. This market is huge, full of great food, interesting people and cool curiosities. Plus it's open late, so it's a great way to take in the sights and sounds of Chiang Mai culture. You'll have a lot of fun walking around, even if you don't buy anything. But DO treat youself to a foot massage there for 160 baht (about $4.50).
  • We visited the market as it was recommended by most people. So we gave it a try. It's an OK market. It feels touristy and appears to be catering to tourists only. We went to the Wororot Market couple of nights later that the locals visit. Culturally that felt like a better market to soak in what a standard night market would be like. If you'd like to shop, night bazaar is better. However, for a local market experience I'd say go to Wororot
  • Good bazar. Average quality though. Go more for the ambiance than the products. And negotiate...
  • Sooo much delicious street food. All this fresh seafood to be chosen. Besides a good spot for shopping.
  • Nice place to stroll around if you are staying in a nearby hotel. I wouldn't go out of the way to go here. The basement art center is very cool to see local artists.
