Chiang Mai Night Bazaar

The Night Bazaar

Diamonds in the Rough

Long a highlight of the Chiang Mai tourist circuit, the Night Bazaar has perhaps passed its prime (the city has so much more to offer these days). But if you can get beyond the tired and tiresome vendors peddling cart after cart of same-same, there are some interesting shops, restaurants and bars to be found.


Billy's - Billy serves tasty pasta dishes and thin pizzas in a pleasant restaurant, and at very reasonable prices. Great food, good wine, minimal ceremony. Turn left off Loi Kroah onto Kampheng Din, continue along and take a left just before the AIS parking lot - the signs will guid you from there.
