Mueang Chiang Mai

Mueang Chiang Mai District, Chiang Mai, Thailand

Chiang Mai’s Top Market

I’m an early riser and I like to go to Talaat Meuang Mai at around 7 a.m. to see one of the most interesting and active wet markets in Thailand. You’ll find food vendors selling produce, meat, fish, poultry, and groceries. Look out for a stall selling jok and khao tom (rice porridge and rice soup, respectively), a typical Thai breakfast that is both filling and delicious but will not drag you down for the day like a typical western breakfast. —Andy Ricker
