Night Bazaar

Chiang Rai's Night Bazaar tries hard, but it doesn't live up to its well-known counterpart in Chiang Mai. The bazaar is located between the bus station and Phaholyothin Road in the center of town. The market consists of many small stands lining the narrow street running between Phaholyothin Road and the bus station. Roughly halfway down the alley is Centrepoint, an open-air restaurant surrounded by more stalls and with a stage for classical music and dance performances.

Been there, got the t-shirt

If you press on to the bus station the market snakes around to the left and turns into a food court. The food court is mostly aimed at Thais, but it's worth a look. There are also one or two restaurants catering to foreigners facing the market. There are several more restaurants on Phaholyothin Road near the entrance to the Night Bazaar.
