What to Do in Night Bazaar

Night Bazaar Attractions

The Night Bazaar is arguably Chiang Mai’s biggest attraction in its self, leading the modern legacy of the Yuannese trading caravans that would stop here along the ancient trade route between China and Myanmar. Historic attractions are a bit thin on the ground around here. The reason people come to the area is primarily to shop and absorb the lively atmosphere.

Other pulls of the Night Bazaar are entertainment focused with a varied selection of bars featuring live performances of boxing, cabaret and singing. However, true to Chiang Mai form there are a few temples speckled around the area; these include Wat Sri Dornchai, Wat Chang Kong and Wat Ubokut. Although these are some of the least spectacular structures within the city it is still well worth checking them out. The Ban Haw Mosque built by the Chin Ho, a group of Chinese Muslims during the 19th century, is also within the Night Bazaar area.

Buddhist Association of Chiang Mai

For centuries Chiang Mai has been the centre of religious activity in Northern Thailand. During the Lanna era, Buddhism was the main religion that flourished and grew; the many ancient temples in the city are testimony to this legacy. Important ceremonies and functions are held at the Buddhist association which also serves as a Buddhist youth club.

If you happen to be in Chiang Mai on a Buddhist holiday (known as the wan phra), religious talks and lectures are arranged by the club. These can be a great insight into the religion and those who have chosen to follow it.
