The justifiably famous Night Bazaar, on Chang Klan Road, is a kind of open-air department store filled with stalls selling everything from inexpensive souvenirs to pricey antiques. In the afternoon and evening traders set up tented stalls, confusingly known as the Night Market, along Chang Klan Road and the adjoining streets. You're expected to bargain, so don't be shy. Do, however, remain polite. Many vendors believe the first and last customers of the day bring good luck, so if you're after a real bargain (up to 50% off) start your shopping early in the day.

This area is awesome! I could have gone back every night. Such good buys on jewelry and handicrafts. I didn't feel pressured to buy anything and it felt very safe. I regret not buying more!
