The mid-sized craft village Bo Sang has specialized in the crafting of paper umbrellas and is well known throughout the country and abroad for outstanding quality as well as amazing floral designs. Choose from plenty of hand-painted umbrellas reaching from tiny cocktail umbrellas to large parasols for gardens or patios and other handmade products as well – all made with Sa paper (from the bark of the mulberry tree) and in uncounted different designs. This is a great gift to bring back home.
Warorot Market (or Kad Luang) is one of Chiang Mai's oldest and most popular markets and is definitely an important destination for all foodies as it offers a wide range of ready meals, local snacks, fresh products and all sorts of other delicacies. On the upper floors are inexpensive goods such as clothing, fashion accessories and personal care products, while the food stalls are mainly located on the ground floor. The Warorot market is particularly popular with the local population and offers an authentic insight into the Thai lifestyle in addition to food and shopping.
This Chiang Mai institution takes place on every Sunday, starting about 4:00 PM and continuing until about midnight. One of the main streets of Chiang Mai is shut, with several tributary streets also closed, so the entire event is pedestrian only, where both locals and tourists come to shop and enjoy the fun. Immerse into the creativity of the local people and their products and make lots of bargains.
The Malin Market can be found at Malin Plaza, opposite Chiang Mai University and is open every evening after 6 PM and very popular among students and locals while not being as crowded and with a lot less tourists than the popular night markets. Like almost at any night market in Thailand, food plays a central role at the Malin Market and there are several dozen Thai, Japanese and Korean vendors to choose from. If you already had dinner you can wander through the maze of clothing stalls making a bargain or get your nails done, have a massage and even get a tattoo.
One of the main attractions in Chiang Mai, especially if you want to do some souvenir shopping. The night bazaar is a must do of your Chiang Mai experience and located at the intersection of Chang Khlan Road and Loi Khro Road spreading out for two blocks in both directions. Set up time is around sunset (usually about 6:00 PM) and the nightly shopping goes on until about 10:30 PM with some vendors still remaining open even later than that.
