Chiang Rai Nightlife

The main activity is wandering the Night Market which is really just a more toned-down version of the raucous Night Bazaar in Chiang Mai. Like its big-city model, you can find a few bars and clubs (a bit seedy but fun). In Chiang Rai there are the standard "bar beer" storefronts with names like Patpong Bar, Lobo, and Butterfly lining the road just a short walk west of the market along Punyodyana Rd. behind the Wangcome Hotel. Here you can find a few quiet pubs as well.
