Spending an evening after the hot sun goes down at the busy Kalare Night Bazaar was fun. Prices were reasonable on wares and food. I was disappointed that no one was performing on the entertainment stage when I visited between Christmas and the new year. I would have enjoyed seeing and hearing live music.

Obviously popular with tourists.Food was either bland or tasted of chilli. Worst food I have had in Thailand and tis is our 50th trip. The night market is trashy. Go to Waroros market and seek out the Hill tribe section on the west side of the markets.Much more variety,some good quality and able to bargain.

Don't go here expecting to find souvenirs, trinkets and all the other tourist stuff. This is a food market, and a good one. You can get fresh food in one section, pre-made food in another, and also a food court which covers a good range of Thai Food.

This market is buzzing. There is a large variety of fresh food to choose from. It is all freshly cooked while you wait. The only down side was the fact that some patrons can't clean after themselves, and tables are left dirty.

We spend a Saturday-Monday in Chiang mai and experienced the Sunday walking market (insanely busy and 50/50 whether you got good or appalling street food) and the night bazaar (weirdly closed with only 50% of shops open- but the best spot if looking for art however cheaper elsewhere) so we went across the road to the larger and more colourful...

Nice food & usual reasonable prices for tourists. I come here for dinner almost every night! Everything is good! There is a small stage with singing entertainment at food court so we have live songs every night.

Located adjacent to the Thape Road Night Bazaar Kalare Night Market sells almost the same range of items. Good for an evening stroll and good for a night visit

Years ago thihis was a favorite place in Chiang Mai to relax with a drink and/or a meal, and watch Thai traditional dance. The stage was a centerpiece of the Kalare food court area. Today, the Chiang Mai night bazaar has extended into the area I once saw as a favorite place. The food court area has less class than... More

Like the markets around it, shops with cheap stuff. But this market has a very good food court with delicious local food and shawarma. I would recommend going there only for the food.

Better to go to a real nicer night market. This place is not worth the trip. There are better ones to go to, or wait for the weekend ones for sure.
