Saturday Walking Street in Chiang Mai

For those looking for a market experience in Chiang Mai that is less geared toward tourists and more geared toward locals, then give the Wualai Market (Saturday Walking Street) a try. It’s less crowded than the Night Bazaar and even the Sunday Walking Street, but you’ll find plenty of handicrafts and tasty street food to make it worth your while.

The market gets started around 5:00pm and starts folding up around 10:00pm. Start at the Chiang Mai Gate on the south side of the Moat and then follow the stalls along Wualai Road to the south.

The goods on display are largely handmade. The food ranges from fresh fruits, sweet treats, sausage, mushrooms wrapped in bacon, pad thai, spicy papaya salad, octopus balls, grilled meats, steamed buns, and seafood on sticks.
