Night Market

My friend and her daughter were going to meet me for the Sunday Night Market near my hotel. I wondered where it would be because I had done a fair bit of walking, but had not seen this market yet on “the walking street”- in fact I had not seen a walking street.

It turns out that the market springs up at about 5:30, at which point the main road becomes pedestrian only. I love night markets as there is always a specialness to them because you have to make an effort to get to them- they are not there waiting for you at any time. We walked the full length up one side and my friend’s daughter bought a few shirts, socks, stress balls, socks, and some postcards. At the far end we stopped for dinner- Pad Thai for two of us and vegetarian fried rice. Making the trek back my friend bought a pair of pants, but I came away empty handed. By now the market was crowded and the sunn had set, so it was abit cooler. After I left them I grabbed a mango sticky rice for dessert and sat down to an hour long foot massage as my reward for all the walking in the heat. All is well in Chiang Mai!
