Ploen Ruedee Night Market – or Chill Out Market Night BarZaar – is without a doubt one of the most prestigious night markets to open in the city of Chiang Mai, Thailand in recent years. Having opened its doors in February of 2015, Ploen Ruedee is a relative newcomer to Chiang Mai’s night market scene. In the short period of its existence, it has quickly established itself as one of Chiang Mai’s most popular and chic night markets!
This night market hosts jewelry and handicraft shops, tattoo parlors, a food court chock full of Thai and international restaurants selling all the cuisine you’ve been missing from home, bars, live musical performances by Thai pop singers and various musical groups, special parties such as Christmas parties that are sure to keep you entertained, holiday decorations and parties celebrating all the Western holidays such as Halloween and Christmas, and much more!
Whereas most night markets of this caliber provide chic glass tables and chairs or no seating at all for visitors, this one provides straw bale seating where people can chill out with their drinks and watch the musical performances. This seating sets it apart from the rest!
Ploen Ruedee Night Market is located along Chang Klan Road just a short distance from the famous Chiang Mai Night Bazaar. At the time of this writing, it is open Monday-Saturday from 4 pm-12 am and closed on Sundays.
