Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    So many delicious food vendors!! I was also surprised by the live music, massage area, and artist! The painting are beautiful, the souvenir shops are everywhere but the food was my main visit & it didn’t disappoint!

    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.

    Like some reviewers had mentioned, this is more of a traditional market with lots of dried goods and dried fruit for tourists to buy back home. This was probably made for locals, but as tourism took off, you can increasingly see more stall catering to tourists - which explains why almost every stall in the middle area sells the same things. For the more local experience, walk the perimeter, inside and outside the building. At one corner you'll see fresh seafood sold in pails and also fresh meat and vegetables. But these are far and beyond. What you will see the most are dried fruits, tea and snacks on level 1 and ethnic products, clothes and bags on level 2. If you are interested, there is also a small section selling dried shrimps, mushrooms, etc. There are also some fruit and food stalls littered around, Generally, prices are very cheap here!

    Do also come back during the night (seemed to be at its peak around 8, 9ish) as the roads outside the building transforms itself into a night market - mostly food stalls but lots to see and try! Similarly, prices are cheap. There's a guy selling coconut water and also jelly in a small cup. Buy that! It is really good - bought the jelly two nights in a row!

    PS. One evening when i went it poured heavily. Surprisingly, some stall holders were still out there doing business!

    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.

    Great little gallery in central Chiang Mai. In the heart of the city and worth the short walk. Art, ceramics, jewellery and other handicrafts.

    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 one of the best night market in Chiang Mai. Great vendors and stalls selling many different foods. The stalls on the canal have tables and chairs set up so you can sit down and enjoy your meals.

    The night market is a local favorite, many come, stop by and get their food for dinner here. It's very vibrant and lively, great atmosphere.

    THE BEST TAILOR SHOP IN CHIANG MAI. Quality fabrics and excellent service.

    Made my third purchase from Mr. Win and His & Hers Tailors Shop. First visit in April 2018 and second in August 2019. I’ve ordered several jackets, trousers and dress shirts. I also had hem alterations made to a pair of trousers that I brought with me. Top service and top quality. I look forward to visiting Mr. Win in the future.

    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.

    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.

    Down town can feel like there is an overwhelming amount of choices for a tailor. New moda is clearly the choice. Max was extremely welcoming and cognizant of our schedule.

    The attention to detail and care they put in to their work is top notch. Finding a good fitting suit can be difficult due to my body type. They did an initial fitting and final fitting to dial everything in. Packaging at the end was also great with limited space in my luggage.

    10/10 would recommend stopping by.
