The best places to go shopping in Chiang Rai, Thailand
Chiang Rai is home to a handful of natural-born artists and craftsmen, but shopping in Chiang Rai itself feels more like an undercurrent than mainstream activity.

 
The Night Bazaar and Saturday Walking Street are best choices to have great shopping experiences. Besides, there are other interesting places you can also drop by and shop.
  • Chiang Rai Walking Street

As soon as you step onto this street, you will immerse yourself in a festive atmosphere, accompanied by food carts, shopping stalls and live folk music. Rub shoulders with the locals and sample some northern Thai snacks.

    There is a wide selection of handmade products, native art and souvenirs to choose from, including a collection of Doi Tung branded goods, tribal crafts, handicrafts, clothing and spa products. Re-enact scenes of the Lanna people’s ancient way of life as a highlight of your evening.

    The first thing that hits you about this shop is the blue neon light and wire-fence display walls bursting with all spectrums of vivid colours. This funky store specializes in hand-painted fashion accessories, whether canvas sneakers, T-shirts, tank tops, baseball caps, cloth bags, or socks.

    Imaginative and playful, the design features a family of cartoon characters, all dreamed up by the owner, each representing a real character in his life. Considering that the rest of the shops in the area seem to offer similar kinds of ware, Nine Shop truly adds a much-needed creative twist to Chiang Rai’s shopping scene.

    Kaad Luang Market (Central Market) is a haven for street food lovers and it has all kinds of snacks and munchies you might find along a road side market in northern Thailand, such as fresh vegetables, fruits, grilled seafood, northern delicacies, ready-to-eat meals and desserts.

    Every afternoon before sunset, vendors set up their stalls around the bazaar and get ready for visitors. If you are adventurous enough, try their fried bugs such as grasshoppers, silk worms and beetles. If not, just go with the crowd and enjoy your food hunt along the way.
