Night Bazaar

Edit This

The Night Bazaar on Chang Klang Road is the city's most famous shopping location and is a must for all visitors. It is a lively area with department stores, shops and stall vendors.

It begins to come to life in the early evening and buzzes till midnight, but a few shops are open all day. If you are looking for all kind of Antiques, paintings, textiles, silverware and woodcrafts then this is the right place and in general everything is cheaper than Bangkok. You can also find faked designer cloth and a lot of other things.

Held on Sundays just outside Tapae Gate, this weekend market brings the best of what is available from the region, and more. Prices are even better than at the Night Bazaar, especially nearing the closing time of the market. Be prepared to bargain though!

Is a lesser known weekly market on Saturday evenings. It starts with the closing of the street to traffic about 4:30 in the evening but does not get going till around 5:30 to 6:00 due to the heat most vendors hide in the shade till it starts to cool off.

It has many small producers selling their wares from cotton hand painted T-shirts to local ceramics. The prices are good and there you will find some items that are not available anywhere else. It is not as well know with tourists so is a little more fun and less business like than the Sunday market.
