Sunday Walking Street in Chiang Mai, Thailand

A highlight of my trip to Chiang Mai, Thailand, in January 2020, was a stroll through the Sunday Weekend Walking Street, a lively outdoor night market of art, crafts, music, and food.  It runs along Ratchadamnoen Road for around one kilometre starting from the ThaPae Gate.  It starts from 4 pm until around midnight.  Many side streets and food courts are also a hive of activity.  It’s an amazing experience, a must see when visiting Chiang Mai.

    Such interesting photos. If I was there, I would have such a difficulty deciding what souvenirs to bring home. So many different items. The food looks delicious – wish I had some right now ! You had a good trip, Robbie.
