Hubby and I planned to spend a couple of hours at the Sunday Walking Street Market in Chiang Mai, in fact this is the reason I made sure to stay over a Sunday night in Chiang Mai, it is ranked as the #10 thing to do in Chiang Mai on Trip Advisor. This market is open every Sunday on Rachadamnoen street from 2-11PM. They block the streets off and vendors set up EVERYWHERE! Many Thais shop here, so the priced are not jacked way high like in other places, but you still want to haggle with them to get the best price possible. Even if you aren't into shopping, you should still go just to see this market & to do a little 'people watching'! There are food vendors all along the way if you get hungry and if your feet get weary there are many places to drop in for a cheap foot massage. Hubby and I spent our two hours there, but soon into our shopping excursion we realized two hours would NOT be enough time. When our two hours were up, we took the kids to the Night Safari, then brought them back to the Sunday Market and where we shopped until the place shut down.
Before you ask, NO! I did not try any of the 'food' above. I have to draw the line somewhere.

Proud Army wife and mother to 4 wonderful children. I love to cook, travel, work out and scrapbook life’s adventures when I find the time. We just got orders & are heading back to the states in March 2010. I'm bummed that our time has been cut short, but proud of Hubby for the reason why.
