Description:

The Chiang Mai Night Bazaar is a sprawling market that runs the length of Chan Klan road, between Tha Pae and Sri Donchai roads. A must visit for any traveller to Chiang mai, the Night Bazaar features seemingly endless stalls of handicrafts, gimmicky t-shirts, watches, bags, haberdashery, woodcarvings, silver, souvenirs and of course, foreign brand knock-offs. Unlike the more locally produced wares found at other Chiang Mai markets, the Night Bazaar is unashamedly targeted towards foreigners and features a lot of the stuff you would expect to see around Khao San Road in Bangkok. On the second and third floor of the main Night Bazaar building on Chang Klan road you will find good designer home decor. On the ground floor, is an artists market where local artisans skillfully reproduce popular photos or create portraits. There are many quite appealing paintings here, just don't expect anything too unique - once an artist creates a popular style of painting that sells, it is not unusual for other artists to adopt the same style. Haggling is a must but do it with a big smile. On the opposite side of the street you will find the Kalare Night Bazaar and food court. The food is not great here compared with other parts of Chiang Mai but you can catch the free nightly show filled with Thai cultural dances and costumes. The stalls around this food court are probably better than those along the main road. If you crave western food, the Night Bazaar also features some good options. While a great evening out, the Night Bazaar doesn't quite match up to the wonderful and authentic Sunday Walking Market.
