Wualai Road Saturday Night Market, Chiang Mai

4.0
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.

  • From the city gate up the street on both sides of the road stalls store snacks, there are many young people swing stalls, two sides of the small stalls trafficking of various types of items, but no standard price makes people feel inconvenient. On the other hand, the snack square on the street is cheap, various foods are selected in Indonesian Thai style, but the environment is so crowded that it is easier to be around 6 or 9 hours early in the afternoon.

  • Best market I’ve been to in years. Actually wanted to buy everything! Great street food too! I found to refreshing that most items have a set price, and so there are no street vendors shouting at you in an attempt to make a sale or rip you off as a tourist. Lots of locals also go to and recommend this market.
  • Almost a kilometer of crowds and creativity! An amazing throng of people browsing and buying a mind boggling array of goods, from clothing, to lamps to fridge magnets, to musical instruments, to anything can imagine. Several food stalls offer takeaways and massages are offered on comfortable recliners on the sidewalk. Several buskers also entertain with music in a carnival atmosphere. What amazed too was NO litter at all, despite the mass of people.
  • Very nice market with a great variety. Great place to get a souvenir or two for friends and family. Everything is pretty cheap too. It is pretty easy to differentiate between the authentic and copy stalls. A definite must-visit for any tourists. Gets very busy so can be a bit hard to get around.
  • Great spot to get a lot of interesting items (paintings, boxes, etc.) and the food! So many food options! We had just ate elsewhere so only had dessert (chocolate waffle) which was delicious. Does get crowded which can be frustrating after a long day but always worth a visit!
  • This is a wonderful market. The food was amazing and you can buy just about anything here. Not just Nic nacks for tourists. Some real buying goes on here.
