Chiang Mai Night Market

Stalls as far as the eye can see.


After seeing genuine Thai handicrafts made by local Thai workers, we hit up the night market as educated shoppers. We could spot fake silk from a mile away and knew how to negotiate prices accordingly. Julia and I scoured the market from one end to the other finding all kinds of treasures for us and for our friends/family back home. The stalls held clothing, purses, shoes, jewelry, fruit, fried foods, silk, and carved soap. There were also tons of massage places. A one-hour foot massage cost 200 baht which converts to about $7US. All of the massages were pretty cheap. The most expensive one-hour massage was an aromatherapy massage and it was $18 US for an hour. We didn’t take the time for a massage because we had too much shopping to do! It was a fun and tiring night of shopping with my sister-in-law.
