On Sunday afternoon Th Ratchadamnoen is taken over by the boisterous Sunday Walking Street, which feels even more animated than Th Wualai's Saturday Walking Street because of the energetic food markets that open up in wát courtyards along the route, in addition to the usual selection of handmade items and northern Thai–themed souvenirs.

If you went to Th Wualai on Saturday, you'll recognise many of the same sellers and buskers that you spotted the night before. The markets are a major source of income for local families and many traders spend the whole week handmaking merchandise to sell on Saturday and Sunday.
