Saturday night market Chiang Mai

Saturday night market Chiang Mai is in our opinion one of the best bazars in Thailand.

It has the largest selection of food, clothes and souvenirs in reasonable prices.

TIP: Go there at the dusk, it’s less crowded. At 9-10 p.m. there are so many people there that’s it really hard to get around.


Every Saturday from the dusk (6 p.m.) until midnight (or even longer).
