The Night Bazaar Shopping

Where to Shop and What to Buy in The Night Bazaar

The Night Bazaar consists of countless stalls packed along the sidewalks and spilling out into the street. Here you can find vendors selling almost anything you can think of. The selection is simply staggering and items on offer include CDs, DVDs, clothes, shoes, Thai silk, handicrafts, purses, wallets, watches, video games, luggage, home accessories, furniture, statues of aliens made from auto parts, spices, souvenirs, samurai swords, art, jewelry, silver, antiques, and several hundred other items of knick-knack and goo-gah that defy categorization. Quality varies from vendor to vendor but low prices mean you almost always get good value for your money.

Most of the stalls sell pretty much the same things as other vendors in the bazaar (one sarong starts to look a lot like all the rest after a while) but keep a sharp eye out – you can find some really unique treasures if you look hard enough. Some vendors will have a small extra shop or storeroom with further wares if you don't see what you want on display.

All Shopping Places in Night Bazaar

Anusarn Shopping Area

Anusarn is at the top end of the Night Bazaar and has a more open-air feel to it than the Kalare, with smaller stores as opposed to shops. Here you can find some intricately made goods, jewelry, clothes, counterfeit watches and beautiful wood carvings. There is also a great selection of lamps around here and one of the best assortments of hill tribe clothes in authentic styles.

  • Opening Hours: 17:00-23:00
  • Address: Chang Klan Road

Bunrin

A quirky little shop that feels as if you’re in someone house, Bunrin is packed full with what seems to be like little bits of everything. A traditional Thai shop selling a broad range of nick knacks, some of it valuable, some of it not. It is the sort of place you can spend hours just being curious. Sketches, antiques, antique jewellery, flags, sculptures, Buddhist memorabilia and ornaments are just some of the things you will encounter at Bunrin.

  • Opening Hours: 12:00-21:30
  • Address: 180/184 Loi Kroh Road
  • Tel: +66 (0) 66 53 27591

Kalare Night Bazaar

The Kalare Night Bazaar is noticeably less hectic than its neighbours and is situated a third of the way down from the top end of the Night Bazaar, to the east. The Kodak camera store and 7-Eleven sign is the best way to recognise where you need to be. The market is sheltered and has the usual furniture, art, textiles and crafts trading going on; a big pull to this section of the Bazaar is the food court with a nightly cultural performance.

  • Opening Hours: 17:00- 23:00
  • Address: Chang Klan Road
  • Tel: +66 53 27 0066

Karen Silver

An entire shop dedicated to beads and silver acquired directly from the Karen Hilltribe and sold in both wholesale and retail portions. If you’re interested in selling, wearing or making jewellery this is definitely a shop worth finding.

Lacoste

Considering Thailand’s penchant for producing and selling Lactose imitations it is quite surreal to walk into a shop in which the contents are the real deal, just down the road from all the fakes.

But it is true, here we have a genuine Lacoste boutique packed to the rafters with trainers, shirts, t-shirts, dresses and tracksuits. Obviously, they’re triple the price of what you might pay just down the road at the Night Bazaar, but obviously better quality and made to stand the test of time.

  • Opening Hours: 11:00-21:00

Nature and Life

Simple cotton and hemp clothing in classic styles. The shops interior does little to detract from the clothing on offer, simplicity is at the core of this Chiang Mai clothing brand. Long clothing rails laden with hangers holding shirts, dresses and skirts line the store, while baskets are stacked with crease friendly items. No doubt, this is much to the delight of Chiang Mai’s backpackers.

  • Opening Hours: 11:00-20:30

Night Bazaar Building

The exterior of the Night Bazaar building is reminiscent of a traditional Thailand teak wood house. Here we have pretty much the same goods as you will find in the Kalare and Anusarn markets. While these places all deal primarily in Thai handicrafts, wood carvings, silk, paintings, ceramics and Lacquerware some traders will be more lenient than others when it comes to bargaining so ask around before you commit to a purchase. The aim of the game is to haggle the price down by at least a quarter of the original asking price.

  • Opening Hours: 17:00-23:00

Nuntana

Dealing in both wholesale and retail textile production, Nuntana has made quite a name for itself over the past decade, trading in the quality textiles that include silk, cotton, linen, chiffon and hemp. As well as this they import Chinese silk before dying it and producing their own designs.

Best described as a wholesome and unique brand producing traditionally inspired clothes with a contemporary twist. Classic hilltribe attire is reinvented with the modern lifestyle in mind. Here you will find the uniform of the sophisticated traveller; classic, comfortable and what’s more, affordable.

Pantip Plaza

This technology bazaar has a wide range of computer products, audiovisual equipment, software and general technical goods. If you can think of it, it is more than likely they will have it. A smaller version than the epic Bangkok cousin but still laden with the sort of goods that have made Pantip Plaza a name across with Southeast Asia. Expect to see big names such as Sony, Hewlett Packard and Acer inside, as well as a number of shops selling the components needed to make or fix a computer. (See also Pantip Plaza Bangkok)
