Chiang Mai Night Bazaar is the main neighbourhood for shopping and nightlife. It's a must-see while in the city. Its epicentre is located at the intersection of Chang Khlan and Loi Khroh, but the whole area spreads out for two blocks in either direction. Set up time is around sunset (usually about 18:00) and the festive energy continues unabated until about 22:30, with a few vendors remaining open even later.
Night Bazaar is also home to a wide range of accommodation, from budget guesthouses to luxury five-star. If you want to be in the middle of Chiang Mai’s busiest commercial section, staying in Night Bazaar won’t disappoint.
