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.
