While not being as flashy or cosmopolitan as its contemporaries in Bangkok or Chiangmai, the Chiang Rai Night Bazaar does offer quite a bit for the public to enjoy, especially when it comes to Isaan Thai (northern Thai) culture!
Apart from the usual line-up of clothing, shoe, fashion accessory, and DVD stalls, vistors to the Chiang Rai Night Bazaar can expect to be treated to Lanna dance show complete with dancers in traditional northern Thai dress, live contemporary musical performances, food stalls selling Isaan Thai delicacies such as fried crickets and snake whiskey and Isaan Thai “finger foods” such as fried chicken and shrimp bites, handicraft stalls selling genuine items handmade by Hmong, Karen, and other ethnicities from across the region, and much more.
The Chiang Rai Night Bazaar is 100% accessible by foot, so wear your best walking shoes and be prepared to do some walking!
For people wanting to sample a unique cultural experience on top of their shopping experience, this is the place to do it!
The Chiang Rai Night Bazaar is open every evening from 5-11 pm.
