Directions to Mae Nam Walking Street
This street really does have a family feel about it, lots of kids, locals, expats and tourists all having a good time together.
Yes it's true each Walking Street does have a lot of the same food and wares on sale, but there are differences. In Mae Nam the food sections seem to work in the style of dinner at a restaurant. The Walking Street is a U-section and should be travelled clockwise if you're to eat your way from dinner to dessert.
At the main entrance side there is all the main course tasters, like tempura prawns, BBQ octopus, pizza, samosa and corn-on-the cob. On the exit side you'll find all the dessert type sweets and snacks like pancakes, cupcakes, and ice cream. Eventually washing it all down with a tasty 50 Baht cocktail at the end.
You can find drinks, food and desserts on both sides of the market but it is a fun way to do Walking Street.
Aside food there's clothes stalls with t-shirts, and lots of denim around. There are flip-flops, ladies shoes, soaps, creams and even toy guitars.
Around the back end of the market you'll find a local or expat duo keeping market goers entertained on the steps of the Chinese Temple.
The Walking Street is held in the central area of Mae Nam, this is where you'll find the highest concentration of bars and restaurants of all flavours owned and run by expats. You can pop in to lots of places and have a sit down meal or a drink while watching the lively street pass by.
Walking Street is held every Thursday night from around 5 pm in central Mae Nam, directly off the ring road. Coming from either direction on the ring road Mae Nam is wedged between Bophut and Bang Por on the northern shores of the island. You can't miss Walking Street; it starts from the only traffic lights in Mae Nam. You'll know you've arrived when you see lines of cars and bikes parked along the ring road and hear music blasting out of roadside speakers.
