Why Chiang Mai Night Bazaar is special ?

Chiang Mai is a shoppers paradise, and nothing beats shopping for a bargain more than in in the famous Chiang Mai Night Bazaar. The Night Bazaar, on the east side of the old walled city, is approximately 1km long on Thanon Chang Khlan (large roads in Thailand are named Thanon, and smaller side streets are named Soi) (so Thanon Chang Khlan translates to Chang Khlan Road). The Night Bazaar is open every day of the year regardless of the weather from dusk till around midnight.


In the daytime, Chang Khlan Road is an ordinary street full of shops, hotels and restaurants of all types including Starbucks and the Burger King, along with the first McDonalds in the city. There are also several large shopping arcades running off the main street. It's at night time tho that the place really comes alive.

What to explore at Chiang Mai Night Bazaar?

If you go there in the late afternoon you will see lots of busy workers wheeling the little metal stalls out and lining them up side by side on the footpaths down both sides of the main road. As the sun sets over Chiang Mai all the street vendors turn up and load their goods for sale into their stalls. The Lights, fans and portable TVs (Thais love their TV soapies) are plugged in and turned on and the tourists start arriving in numbers. You will most likely find the same vendors in the same spot every night.

In the Night Bazaar you will find a huge variety of brand name designer goods (real and fake) (clothing, T-shirts, belts, shoes, jewellery, watches, DVD's & CD's) and local Thai goods at really low prices.

Remember to bargain for your purchases, it is expected of you and is all part of the fun. Bargaining is almost a national sport in Thailand. Even though the prices appear cheap by your normal standards you should always bargain and try to get another 20-30% off the asking price

I know, you read night bazaar and you think what to expect. Yes, its a night market but actually this one I really like it. I started my afternoon walking from the north from kuang men road down to the middle of the night bazaar. Its a nice walk, full of shops and bargains.If you think that you might find the same things in Bangkok you might be wrong and doing some shopping here might not be a bad idea. I couldn't find lots of things that I actually liked and at the end I regret it not buying it. Price wise its almost the same but clearly the fact that every shops is on the streets makes it easier to walk around and fetch for bargains.My wife love the underground part almost below the Le Meridien hotel that had a bunch of artists painting photographs with such a degree of perfection. You can also find some unique souvenirs but most of the things that you will see will be clothes, fake brands and cheap gifts.If you love to wonder the streets, having a cheap massage and buying some irrelevant stuff, this is your place. For sure it was mine.

A great place to pick up a bargain & also a great place to just walk around. It has a nice atmosphere & it's not too busy. The shopping is good, not just your standard t shirt's & shorts. There's really good leather stuff & lots of craft items.Well worth a visit or 3.

There is some places to eat, but mainly a place to shop. Always negotiate for a lower price. You can usually go down 25%-50% the asking price.
