Chiang Rai Night Market

Like its larger neighbor, Chiang Rai also has a night market. Its offerings weren’t nearly as plentiful or as varied as that in Chiang Mai. In addition to souvenir t-shirts, sun glasses, etc., one could also buy bags/purses made by the Hmong and Lisu. Its large food court was a favorite place for eating. Although there were plenty of repeats in toned-down Thai food, I did spot (but did not try) the wiggling variety. Later on, there were music performances on the food court’s stage. For those with larger food budgets and a quest for a more peaceful ambience, the Centrepoint restaurant also supplied quiet guitar music.

Are these mealworms? I feed them to my sugar gliders and have a culture of them in a little cage. I wouldn't eat them either.
