Malin Market

Evening Program

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.

Visit Baan Jang Nak

Buy true-to-live elephant wood carvingsSeveral hours activity

If you like elephants or crafts, you should take the time to visit Baan Jang Nak. Baan Jang Nak can be found around 20 km southeast from Chiang Mai near San Kamphaeng an is a little bit hidden - but it is well worth the journey. Once there, you can take a look over the shoulder of the artists who have gathered around Thailand's "Elephant Man" Phet Wiriya, and marvel at how both smaller and lifelike elephants emerge - one thinks every moment that they come to life. The museum contains many hundreds of these incredible works of art and most of them are carved out of wood - a really great gift for taking home. Great art! The excursion to Baan Jang Nak can be very well combined with a visit to Bo Sang (paper umbrellas) and further on the 1006 to the southeast one of the better Porcelain manufactories around Chiang Mai (Siam Celadon) can be found and from there it is only about 8 km to Baan Jang Nak.
