Chiang Mai is a great place to buy Asian handicrafts. From modern air-conditioned shopping centres to traditional markets, you might come back with a full suitcase of treasures.
Sunday Walking Street
The main market thoroughfare is Rachadamnoen Road, which begins just behind Thapae Gate. Vendors sell handcrafted lamps, dolls, soaps, jewellery, clothes, Christmas ornaments, local crafts, and just about everything else you can imagine.
Warorot Market (Kad Luang)
Warorot Market is a great place to get a feel for the local way of life. The three-storey building is close to the riverside and easy to find, just at the end of Chang Moi Road, east of the moat and north of Chiang Mai Night Bazaar.
The city's biggest market
Local food and snacks
Every evening, the centre of Chiang Mai comes alive at the Night Market, which stretches for several blocks and includes restaurants, bars and entertainment. Buy an astonishing variety of handcrafted souvenirs, or consider some of the smooth, colourful silk on sale everywhere. It is just steps away from our hotel.
