What a magical place! So many delightful sights and smells at stalls run by the some of the most friendly people I have had the pleasure of meeting. This night market can get pretty crowded but it never overwhelms; it's lively but feels pretty safe....More

Biggest and best night market in Chaing Mai! Lovely location inside city walls. Very busy and relaxing at the same time! Lots of various merchandise for sale, but also restaurants behind with nice seating areas to people watch! Look out for the gelato tuk tuk!
