Where and What to Eat in Chiang Mai Old City

Chiang Mai’s Old Town is littered with places to eat ranging from upscale antique laden eateries, to generous portions of street food for next to nothing to fine European cuisine. Catering to all budgets and preferences it is generally regarded as a great place to eat out, with most places occupying both indoor and al fresco areas, for the most part they all are charming venues with original décor concepts. This is also a great place to find lean cuisine with many of the cafes dealing only in organic produce bought fresh that day from the market.

Week End Market Food and Dining

The Weekend Market sees street vendors come out in their droves selling noodles, Pad Thai, kebabs, spring rolls and Thai desserts, this is some of the best food you will eat in Thailand and rightly so, the cheapest! Around Nimmanhaemin Road is an area that particularly caters to the epicurean needs of the expatriate community. French bakeries, European boutique style eateries and pizza joints pepper the streets while the Huay Kaew Road has a generous selection of both Asian and western eateries.

A standard concept in Thailand is to serve food at night venues, thus combining nightlife and dining. Therefore many places you might assume as being more for an after-dinner drink are also likely to be where you can dine while being entertained. Closer to the walled city there is also a good selection of dining options that will appease your taste buds at the end of the evening. Fish and chips or a burrito perhaps? It's all there…
