In 2014 we set off on a Year of Nomadic Family Travel and it has been one of the best experiences in our lives. It was all about change, risk, adventure, and discovery. We took, what some would consider, a crazy leap of faith, and although we can’t say what the future holds, we wouldn’t change a thing. The experiences that we’ve had in the last year are more than most could hope for in a lifetime. We are amazed and so grateful when we look back on it all.
The Saturday Walking Street in Chiang Mai (Wualai Market) is for those looking for a market experience that is less geared toward tourists and more geared toward locals. It’s less crowded than the Night Bazaar and even the Sunday Walking Street, but you’ll find plenty of handicrafts and tasty street food to make it worth your while.
Chiang Mai’s “Chinatown” and Warorot Market are both worth a visit and you can do both easily in just one day. The Warorot Market, locally referred to as Kad Luang (big market), is located in Chiang Mai’s Chinatown district, so it’s a two-for-one. The market is comprised of a sprawling 3-story covered market as well as a series of street markets that spread out on both sides of Chang Moi Road and cover an area roughly between Ratchawong, Tha Pae Road and the River. It’s just north of Chiang Mai’s famous Night Bazaar.
