    Family trip to the Saturday night market. Great to see the market buzzing. Grab your food at the top of the street at the multitude of stalls before heading into the market itself. Not as many food offerings as I had hoped for, but cheap and very tastey. Market stalls are okay.

    There is plenty of local food and if you aren’t crafted out by this stage (after visiting different markets in Chiangmai), there is a good selection here.

    For the food, we really really liked the freshly steamed filled rice rolls (in Singapore/Malaysian we call them chee cheong fun) and man! these were super delicious. They come in 8 different flavors and guess what? It’s 8 to a portion so if you can’t decide what to have, just have one of each!!!

    The mango sticky rice was one of the better ones we had too. The glutinous rice was cooked to a light and fluffy texture. Perfect!!!

    Besides the food, the mall was the perfect excuse to hide away from the afternoon sun. My friend got a massage, I raided the supermarket looking for local snacks and had a nosey around the mall for local Thai brands.

    Good for passing away 2-3 hours. Have fun.

    This is a typical night market in Thailand with the usual constellation of Thai souvenirs and apparel. You should absolutely expect to bargain with the vendors. Anything not already marked with a price means that it’s subject to negotiation, and although you might think that you don’t mind overpaying for a few goods since nothing is actually expensive, you’ll eventually get tired of paying two and three times as much as everyone else for the same goods. If the vendor immediately agrees to your offered price, you did not go low enough. You are going for a vendor who has to think for a while, consult someone else for your offered price, and just barely lets you walk away from the sale before the price is agreed upon. If they let you walk away, you’re too low, at least for that vendor. Plan to pay in cash. Even if the vendor accepts credit cards, they will usually add a 3% surcharge. And bring your own backpack to put your parcels in. They will give you bags, but eventually you’ll get tired of carrying the numerous parcels and you’ll want your hands free to browse. Also bring your own water, but be aware that there are numerous stalls nearby with street food as well. Bathrooms are nearly nonexistent, and you may need to pay 5-10 baht to use one.

    We were in Chiang Mai for 5 days last November for Yi Peng (Flying Lantern Festival) and Loy Krathong (Floating Lantern Festival), and we had planned a 3 day Temple circuit in the Old City.We had pin pointed the most famous ones like Wat Chedi Luang Varavihara and Wat Phra Singh which are amazing.

    But how many Temples can one visit, so we decided to make a break and look for a flower market.
    There is one near Chiang Mai Chian Town but it is not very big so we preferred that one.

    And what a surprise: no tourists at all.
    Only a few locals ... and only flowers and plants.
    Practically a Botanic Garden, a very big Garden.

    I have attached plenty of pictures, hoping to give you kind of a feeling of this place.

    If you like flowers, orchids and gardens this is definitely a Must See in Chiang Mai.

    Now please do pay attention:
    Don't be careless (as we were) and make sure your cab or Tuktuk is waiting for you there to get back to the City Center and the Old City.
    If you grabbed one and let it go away (like us) instead of waiting for you, this might not be such a good idea as it will be difficult to get one back.
    A few baths will be a good investment to guarantee your way back promptly with no precious time wasted waiting.
    We had to walk a lot until a cab finally appeared and "agreed" to take us back to the center.

    This private gallery is stunning. The building is beautiful and the art diverse and exquisite. The artist lives next door and was in the gallery when I visited. He is friendly and well-travelled. I ended up being invited to an opening. A visit here would be easy to combine with a visit to Wat Umong which is quite unique as well.

    This is a good smaller night market in Old City. Easy walking distance from most hotels. My must haves are Gyoza, mango sticky rice and Roti. Roti is dough they fry that you put toppings in. I get banana, nutella and milk. Most vendors can understand English. You can tell if they have their menus posted in both Thai and English words. There are places to sit but they are owned by the vendors so they will tell you where to sit. If you want alcohol you need to go to the 7-11 right on the market street. There is a vendor that sells fried chicken on a stick and spring rolls that are delicious! You must have the Gyoza and that is the name on the stand. I prefer to eat local markets. You need baht, try to pay in smaller amounts as they may struggle to change large bills.

    This was my first and definitely not the last time I had a tailor made suit created by masterful artists. Mr. Win welcomed us into the shop, patiently and generously explained every detail of the process including the different types and qualities of the fabric as well as cuts and styles of wear. We were in a rush and only had 2 days, but Mr. Win went above and beyond to make it all happen in that short period of time. I can verify that he is a very honest and caring individual who cares about his customers experience, a quality that is rare and worth every bit. Would recommend him to anyone and will definitely be coming back when we return to Chiang Mai.

    Covered ตลาด positioned around cinco minutes norte de Chiang Mai, where el suelo and las encimeras are unbroken tile making them very straightforward to clean and maintain. So great hygiene in a ตลาด which specialises in foodstuffs - mainly prepared items including แกง, stir fries and grilled dead တိရိစ္ဆာန်။
    Very little ภาษาอังกฤษ labelling so you’ll need to be careful if you’re เจ/သက်သတ်လွတ်/vegano, since even a lot of the stir fries for instance have bits of dismembered animals ဟင်းသီဟင်းရွက်များအောက်မှာရှိတယ်။
    One end of the covered mercado is devoted to fresh produce - ผัก y သစ်သီး - but in my experience their presence isn’t always as regular as the prepared foods vendedores. No hay asientos.

    Relatively big day market filled with nice, interesting and unique crafts from the local.

    Enjoyed eating there too albeit the food section was a little small. A nice thing to do for the day! Would recommend to come on the weekday to explore and appreciate the handmade crafts.

    Love that the place is also encouraging environmentally friendly practices. 👍🏼

    A good non touristy local market. Sai ooa (spicy sausage in spirals) rather lovely. Food, fruit and other oddments. A man optimistically selling large pictures. Atmosphere.

    Highly recommended tailor in Chiang Mai. I trusted the other reviews and went straight to New Moda and was not disappointed.

    They went above and beyond to meet my demands despite short timeframe (first fitting was same day 10pm to meet timelines!), communication was great through whatsapp and full suit and shirts were spot on after small changes through multiple fittings.

    Great selection of fabrics, lining and customization options. Would definitely order more from abroad as well as they deliver internationally.
