Wualai Road Saturday Night Market, Chiang Mai

(1,000+ reviews on the web)
Flea Market
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.

  • I was staying only just round the corner from the Saturday Night Walking Street and so I arrived as the stall holders were starting to set up. It is wise to come early due to it becoming very busy on ...  more »
  • Very busy on this night market. There are many regional streetfood and trade goods. He is somewhat clearer than the Sunday market and you should allow at least 3-4 hours.

  • Great local market. Try going to a temple (west end, street to the north) to see local festival. You can find a lot of handcrafted staff of better quality than on the Night Bazaar and Sunday Market. There are a lot of local people spending their time there and for me it's the best recommendation. Choose this one instead the Sunday one.
  • Huge outdoor market. Wide range of good food and interesting crafts. Gets very busy with locals and tourists
  • Great market for everything The market as grown into an incredible diverse market offering food, clothing, artisan and lots of other interesting products and services including massage. Go and enjoy the market from around 530pm walk up and down the whole length trying the local delights on the way.
  • Busy but beautiful. Great deals but you have to be willing to haggle. Most things can be had for 60-70% of the regular price. Great street foods as well.
  • Very nice stalls and food; we just had Thai-style tapas dinner here and there while we walked by all the nooks and crannies of the market. It took us nearly 4h! Maybe because of the novelty but we preferred this market than Sunday's one, it felt a bit less overcrowded Try arriving around 18h to enjoy fully as the later it is, more people cram in
