As a confirmed non-shopaholic, it takes a lot to motivate me to do the whole negotiation thing and faking interest in buying things. I'm a little Zen I guess and don't like clutter. However the Chiangmai night market is fascinating in terms of some really...More

Head down here and see the scorpions on skewers still wriggling before they enter the deep fryer. Plenty of locals as well as tourists and friendly helpers at the stands with the patience to help you pick what you would like. Highly recommended!

Exciting and interesting (food) market with strange food and different smells. Worth a visit even if it is just to soak in the atmosphere. If you buy something, always try to get it cheaper then it's priced, but it doesn't always work. Some battered dough...More

This is a thriving market with lots of food stalls on the East-West street, and also a few sit-down eateries along the North-South lane that links up with Dahsmao Hutong, with quite a few locals eating. We chose one and random, which had the marking...More
