Where is the Best Shopping in Chiang Mai?

Chiang Mai is Thailand’s primary handicraft center, offering many shopping opportunities not found in other major cities.

Visitors can watch craftsmen at work, try their own hand at crafts making or tour a factory or an artist’s workshop. Expect lots of boutique shops, open-air markets and galleries, rather than the chic shopping experience offered elsewhere in Thailand.

Here are 7 great places to shop in Chiang Mai.

Bo Sang Handicraft Village

The parasols and umbrellas made here are known worldwide, and have become the symbol of Chiang Mai. Hand-painted umbrellas are available, as well as larger coverings for patios or gardens, all done on sa paper. And the prices won’t break the bank.

Night Bazaar

Chiang Mai’s Night Bizarre offers a blizzard of shopping, street food and drinking. It’s a great place to have a bite, pick up a souvenir and do some people watching. Several walk-in bars and pubs offer a place to rest.

Weekend Walking Streets

On Sundays, Ratchadamneon Road is alight with arts, crafts, food music—and very large crowds. It’s a great place to see the Chiang Mai locals and buy hand-made goods. For a more laid back experience, try Wualai Road on Saturdays, which is a smaller market but far less crowded.

Sankampaeng Craft Street

Thai silk, umbrellas, ceramics and lacquer goods can all be found here, where small factories and shops line Chiang Mai-San Kamphaeng Road and artisans practice their crafts.

Riverside Boutiques

A portion of Charoenrat Road, across the river ping, offers renovated, century-old wooden shop houses selling both local handicrafts and brand-name goods. It’s a great place to stroll.

Op Place

Op Place offers stalls packed with local handicrafts in an open and airy setting.

The House

A cheery and engaging place to shop, The House offers Thai furniture and clothing and colorful cookware made by Ginger, a Thai company.

Warorot Market

A must for foodies, Warorot Market offers fresh local produce, snacks and ready-to-eat meals. Clothing and other sundries are also on hand. Customers are mainly locals and this is a great place to learn about life in Chiang Mai.
