Chiang Mai Night Bazaar

Enjoy the lively ambiance among the lights, music and enticing aromas of this iconic night market specializing in portrait paintings.

The Chiang Mai Night Bazaar is a flamboyant market mostly dedicated to antique and handicrafts stores. It is a present-day legacy of the Yunnanese caravans that stopped here on a busy trading route. Get a glimpse into the local culture with an evening stroll through this active bazaar.

Marvel at the remarkable talent that goes into the portrait paintings that decorate the many stalls of the market. Browse the handicrafts and Thai antiques, which are among the main products in the bazaar. Jewelry, toys, clothing and electronics comprise the rest of this exceptional lineup.

Look for souvenirs to take to family and friends back home. The market is about 0.6 mile (1 kilometer) long. Visit the many restaurants, hotels and shops during the day. Vendors wheel out their metal stalls in the late afternoon. Consider haggling for your products, as many vendors do not have set, marked prices.

Walk along the side streets to reach the adjacent Kalare Night Bazaar, which is more focused on upscale clothing and home décor. Dine at one of the many stalls and restaurants in the Kalare Food Center. Try the banana roti sweet pastry and other products in the Anusran Market, which specializes in low-cost food.

Stroll to the Art in Paradise complex just south of the bazaar for the fascinating illusions and bizarre photos in 3-D form.

Meander through the market from early evening until midnight any day year-round, regardless of weather. It is free to enter, with prices varying from stall to stall.

The Chiang Mai Night Bazaar is just east of the city moat and west of the Ping River in the northern part of the city. Follow the Th Chang Khlan footpath from Th Tha Phae to Th Loi Kroh. Visit nearby attractions, such as the Iron Bridge and the Wat Buppharam.
