Night markets to see in Thailand

Night markets to discover in Thailand

In Thailand, night markets are very popular. First and foremost, they're great places to grab a bite to eat in the evening and a great place to discover the Thai street food. Sometimes you can also do a bit of shopping there, clothes, souvenirs, gadgets, handicrafts, high-tech products sometimes ect....

Contrary to what you might think, night markets in Thailand exist almost everywhere, not only in tourist areas. And most of them are mostly frequented by the locals. There are of course some exceptions.

In recent years, there has been a new type of night market in Thailand that has spread and is called Walking Street because they settle, one or more days a week, usually on the weekend, on a section of street closed to traffic for the occasion. Whether it's the daily night markets or the walking streets, I urge you to go there for dinner. The atmosphere is quite unique and they are friendly places where you'll be able to try lots of Thai specialties and enjoy delicious Street Food!

Saturday Walking Street

Saturday Walking Street

Chiang Mai
Big night market a little less known than Sunday Walking Street, Chiang Mai Saturday Walking Street also attracts a lot of people and allows you to do a little shopping and have dinner by tasting the local cuisine at the very numerous stalls and street restaurants. The neighboring Silver Temple is also superbly lit and open to the public these evenings.

Ayutthaya Weekend Nigh Market

This night market offers a very nice decor and a pleasant atmosphere. It is held on Friday, Saturday and Sunday evenings in the heart of the city near the most famous historical temples of Ayutthaya. This is particularly a place that I recommend for dinner and discover the local cuisine.
Tamarind Market

Hua Hin
A little after the Cicada Market, this other Hua Hin night market is open exactly the same evenings. It is almost entirely dedicated to food and drinks. It's personally my favorite weekend night market in Hua Hin.
