It's this simple. When you come to Chiang Mai, visit Wororot Market (Kad Luang). Each time you visit Chiang Mai visit Wororot Market. You don't need to take all day. Take an hour or two. Find areas of the market that interest you and revisit...More
If you're into Starbuck inspired lattes, Thai plastic food (pad thais and Fried rices), shopping malls, fake "how are y'all doing" welcomes, proceesed cheese and crdit card payments..
..this place is not for you (and what on earth are you doing in Thailand!!?).
First I just want to point out that a lot of reviews here are saying this is a purely local market and not for tourists. That's not really true - it is quite local and authentic, but there is so much stuff that's only for...More
Thought I'd visit to see "how the locals shop" as all the reviews state. It was okay, nothing special. Ground floor is mostly food then next 2 levels are mostly clothes. Wouldn't say it's that much cheaper. Go... don't go... you're not missing much if...More
To be fair this market is 5 minutes walk from where we stay so it's so easy to pop to the bank, or the chemist or a kitchen shop whenever we feel like it.
We tend to do the food shopping at Muang Mai market...More
I surmise you can find just about everything you desire here if you can see what is all available because of so many shops selling everything and so many Gold stores everywhere. A great Chinese pharmacy to fill all of your requirements possibly.
Very crowded market. This market has everything from fresh fruits and veggies to dry spices and fruit... clothes and fine fabrics. Nice little coffee shops in hide always of buildings. The market is on the street, in the buildings that’s on the street... massive market....More
We found this market quite overwhelming. Obviously is is very quite essential Thai. We didn't enjoy the food part especially as there was a lot of animals that were being sold alive. As well as a lot of meat and fish lying out creating some...More
It is a big market which is full of shops selling dried fruit, nuts, tea, fried insects, cheap clothes, wooden plates, bamboo baskets, etc. We went there on the last day to grab all the souvenir we need.
This is definitely a market for locals. You are better off waiting for the night bazaar if you are looking for souvenirs, handmade goods, or jewelry. People were friendly but no need to go out of your way to visit.
For silk, you need to go San Kamphaeng Road. Its a stretch of a few miles right outside the city but technically in Chiang Mai. It's sort of a highway; you can't walk it - you need a driver (We hired a driver for the day... More
For silk, you need to go San Kamphaeng Road. Its a stretch of a few miles right outside the city but technically in Chiang Mai. It's sort of a highway; you can't walk it - you need a driver (We hired a driver for the day). The Road has 3 silk stores and many other better quality crafts (lacquer, wood etc.). They have both fabric and finished items. You can get a suit made. Most stores also have the factory where the goods are made which we thought were interesting. We went to all 3 stores to purchase silk for my daughter. We did not find any decent quality silk in Chiang Mai, other than than on San Kamphaeng Road. The local markets have low end fabrics and they did not appear to be silk, even when it was advertised as silk. Good luck.
Warorot Market is only open during the day. It is great for street food! The city is a shuk so basically there is shopping/market all over. I recommend Saturday night Weekend market AND the Sunday night Weekend market... More
Warorot Market is only open during the day. It is great for street food! The city is a shuk so basically there is shopping/market all over. I recommend Saturday night Weekend market AND the Sunday night Weekend market (different streets for each market). They had a more crafts (not a lot) than other typical markets. We bought a hand painted canvas we are getting framed and some other items. The "night market" which is every night (by Le Meredien hotel and Hard Rock Cafe) is mostly nick nacks.
