The Sunday Market (or Walking Street) is a large market located right in the centre of the old walled city area of Chiang Mai. Starting at the Tha Phae Gate at one end the Sunday Market extends for roughly 1km down the full length of Ratchadamnoen Road. You can go to the Market every Sunday from 4pm till midnight.

Ratchadamnoen Road is always closed to traffic while the Sunday Market is open. This allows shoppers to browse the goods on display, bargain with vendors for a good price and wander freely all around without watching over their shoulder for a motor bike zipping past.

At the Sunday Market you will find lots of tourists and Thai locals all gathered together having a good time looking for bargains. The Sunday Market is growing bigger every year and has now started to spread down many of the side streets off the main road, as well as the big open area around the Tha Phae Gate itself.

Unlike the Night Bazaar which is filled with imitation designer labels, the Sunday Market is a showcase of the art and craftsmanship of the Northern Thai people. Many of the stall vendors make and sell their own products and the quality of craftsmanship is superb. The goods available are made from a wide variety of materials such as silk, paper, fabric, wood, metal, glass, ceramic etc.

The handicraft products displayed are perfect as gifts or beautiful and useful items to decorate your own home. You will also find many vendors selling shoes, jewellery, souvenirs and clothing like 100% cotton eco t-shirts or Thai Silk boxer shorts.

There are a number of restaurants, coffee shops and bars in the Market area where you can opt out of the crowd and sit and enjoy a meal or a drink and watch the ebb and flow of shoppers.

The Sunday Market really comes alive after dark when all the street entertainers, musicians, puppeteers, Thai dancers, and bands start to perform; and all the coloured light are turned on. If you get sore feet wandering around, you can have a foot massage for 70THB for 30 minutes.

Not to be missed during your visit to the Sunday Market are two excellent temples. On the main street is Wat Phan Tao and down a side street is the impressive bulk of Wat Chedi Luang. Get there before dark to see them in good light.

The whole place has a very festive nature which makes the Sunday Market a must see thing to do on any visit to Chiang Mai, Thailand.
