Chiang Mai is an exceptional destination for handicraft goods, market bargains and much, much more. Our shopping guide provides a handy review, so that you can make the most of your time in this shopaholic paradise. Le Méridien Chiang Mai’s lobby boutique displays fashionable jewelry and bags, as well as souvenirs and holiday essentials, making it the ideal shopping destination whenever you’re passing by.
Local designer boutiques for clothing, accessory and home ware can be found adjacent to the hotel at the upscale mall OP Place, along the road flanking the Mae Ping River, and also nestled amongst the art galleries and eclectic coffee shops of Nimmanhaemin Road just 15 minutes away.
On the doorstep of our hotel the vast Night Bazaar of local artisans has something for everyone. While the moated traditional city centre, as well as the famous Saturday and Sunday walking street markets, are all a stone’s throw away.
The region is famed for its high quality cotton and silk fabrics, hill tribe goods, painted bamboo and paper umbrellas, furniture made of teak, rattan, wicker and bamboo, ceramic and lacquer ware, artistic wood carvings and a treasure trove of antiques. Shoppers can browse the endless number of markets to haggle over bargains, or tour the surrounding specialist handicraft villages for a glimpse at where the products are made.
