Chiang Mai Walking Streets
Shopping in Chiang Mai is all about immersing yourself in the local culture, and there’s no better place to experience it than at the Weekend Walking Streets. Here, the essence of Chiang Mai comes to life in a vibrant spectrum of art, crafts, music and food – with mostly handmade quality than mass-produced goods.
Apart from shopping, both the Sunday and Saturday Walking Streets serve as a venue for all kinds of local events, from dance recitals to beauty pageants and the sois (lanes) on either side of the main road feature stages and performance spaces, while the intersections act as informal venues for all kinds of street performers-musicians, puppeteers and even soccer virtuosos. As you stroll down the jam-packed streets, you will get a full exposure to a wealth of traditional and modern Chiang Mai culture all in one visit.
