Every Sunday during the late afternoon, Ratchadamnoen Road in Chiang Mai closes to motor vehicles and opens up as a pedestrian-only street. Slowly, this stretch of one-kilometer road becomes filled with local food and handicraft vendors. It’s a one-stop shop for everything from impressive paintings to lanterns and flowers to an array of delicious Thai food. Not to be missed!

My stomach started to growl at the top of the page! A little jealous, but can’t wait to be in Thailand in June!
And it’s all as tasty as it looks! You’re going to love it.

Love night markets! Can’t wait to check this one out in Chiang Mai!!! Adam ate all the bugs in Bangkok, I am sure he will try more!
And here I was planning on going somewhere closer to save a ridiculous amount of money on flight costs, but here you go and show me all sorts of Thai food and now I have to go there.

Best market ever, right??? Were you guys there for Songkran?
Yes, it’s huge! We were there for songkran and it was absolutely nuts. Definitely a cool experience. Were you in Thailand for songkran?
