The Malin Plaza market is one of the best markets in Chiang Mai.
Although the city already has the famous Walking Street markets and many others, this one is still worth visiting especially if you’re on a budget but want to shop for inexpensive goods.

Just like other markets found in Thailand, food plays an important role here. There are countless Thai, as well as other Korean and Japanese vendors offering delicious, homemade food at cheap prices. Thais love their dessert, so it’s no surprise to find several vendors inviting you to indulge your sweet tooth. From regular ice cream to floss candy and more, you’ll find it here.
However, that’s not all that there is to this market. Wander through the maze of stalls to find affordable clothing, and don’t forget to haggle. The clothes here also cater to larger, western sizes, so it’s easy to find something that will fit. You can even have a manicure and a pedicure, as well as a massage and tattoos; all for cheap prices here.
If you’d like a change of pace from the very crowded, more popular markets in Chiang Mai, you’ll enjoy spending your evenings here. Because of its location away from the old city, there are fewer tourists here, which is good news for those travelling with children, since they will have more space to safely roam around.
Bicycle, motorbike, and car parking is available here too.
