Chiangmai - You can go to the night market which is approximately 1 km long to shop. There are clothes, accessories, bags, decoration items..... Bargaining is a must and you can go straight to ask for a 50% cut in price. But do note that the items that they are selling are imitations, be it Thai silk, elephant skin wallet or rubies - all imitation. The ladies dressed in traditional Miao tribe costume sell rather nice bracelets. I bought a bracelet with a ring attached by a chain. Quite nice. But don't expect much about the quality. You must be prepared that once you stop to browse from one of the Miao lady, you will soon be surrounded by more of them in less than one minute. Yes, it happened to me, eight ladies crowded around me. They are rather persistent in their selling. I even see two of them following a lady around.
