Flea Market Shopping
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.

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.

  • Very very small market compared to the Night Bazaar and the Sunday Walking Street. There is more food than objects, so depending on what you want in a market, maybe it will suit your needs. As for me,...  more »

  • 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.
  • I really enjoyed the walk around the market, The Saturday market runs outside the old walled city area from Wualai road. We encountered an abundance of food offering, we enjoyed delicious “Nam”, pork sausages for a start. Also, various items of clothing, artisan and lots of other fascinating products and handicrafts made of various material, including wood, metals, ceramics.
  • Great food and shopping. Lots of things sold here, there's even traditional music instruments and handmade guitars. Buskers lighting up the place with music. If u are here on Saturday, u just have to go!
  • Smaller version of the Sunday night market. More authentic, less commercialized. Snacks and handicrafts galore. Good place to have dinner, but beware things can get spicy.
  • If you wanna see some piece of contemporary Thai arts. Weird veggies selling in dark alley. A ceramic scrubber for your skin during your shower and weird look mulberry juice in plastic bottle. Look no further.
