No trip to Chiang Mai would be complete without a visit to the Sunday (Or Walking Street) Market. It starts at Tha Phae Gate and runs the full length of Ratchadamnoen Road for 1 KM.
The street is closed to traffic from 4:00 PM until Midnight.
Unlike Chiang Mai’s Night Bazaar, the Sunday Market showcases the craftsmanship of Northern Thailand. This is where you want to look for your souvenirs and gifts for friends back home.
The Sunday Market is very popular with both Thais and foreign visitors. It can be very crowded. Wear comfortable shoes and bring your sense of humor and adventure! Enjoy the music, street performers, and the people.
