Wualai Road Saturday Night Market, Chiang Mai

4.0
#4 of 74 in Shopping in Chiang Mai
Hunt for a bargain at Wualai Road Saturday Night Market, a weekly market primarily selling handicrafts and clothing, located on what is Chiang Mai's silversmith street. The food is as much a highlight as the craft stalls, with both local restaurants and street vendors selling delicious treats such as barbequed fish, som tam, fried rice, and pad Thai. If you are unable to make to make the market on a Saturday, there is a similar market Rachadamnoen Road on a Sunday, and some of the stalls and goods found at those markets can be found at the permanent night bazaar closer to the town center. For travelers who use our world travel planner, Chiang Mai holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Wualai Road Saturday Night Market and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

    Traffic, crowds everywhere through the narrow streets of the bazaar of Chiang Mai Saturday. An experience of color, taste, smell of Thailand. You can eat everywhere in many barrows street food, buy items of all kinds, souvenirs, clothes. You can listen to music and enjoy the Thailand! Experience not to be missed!

    This is the place to go for souvenirs and food! Much cheaper then southern Thailand islands, this is the place to buy all that random stuff you wanted to get. And the food was yummy!  more »

    Busy - as expected Food and more food - huge variety - plenty fresh fruit juice stalls. Everything freshly made - tasty!!! Clothing similar - every 3rd stall. A pleasant experience albeit humidity. Recommended for first time visitors.

    Probably the best night market in whole Thailand. We have visited many of them around the country and we bought all souvenirs in here. Also the food is amazing here.

    Great variety and displays of local arts and crafts. A great place for a Saturday evening to people watch, eat, shop, socialise and have fun. One of Chiang Mai's top attractions and is great to see it popular with locals, expats and visitors alike.

    Great market to get your original souvenirs at a good price. And don't forget the lovely food! Walking street is a night out. Put on your walking shoes and don't eat up front.

    Great people watching! Super authentic. Thais go there to shop. One of the first night markets. Can get REAL crowded and hard to get out when you are done.

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.
