The bustling night market in downtown Chiang Mai ranks amongst Thailands star attractions drawing huge crowds of holidaymakers year-round.
The Night Bazaar enjoys an ideal location within walking distance of luxury hotels, beautiful temples, budget accommodation, nightlife, shops and numerous restaurants.
The market has an outdoor section as well as a covered area. Outside visitors will find countless stands with vendors selling a wide range of goods including sunglasses, watches, t-shirts, computer games, DVDs, fragrances, bags, suitcases, jewellery, wallets and sportswear.
Additionally, Thailands most popular shopping place also houses some of Asias finest charcoal pencil artists. The covered section is home to many portrait art galleries where you can observe skilful portraitists transforming photographs into brilliant black and white charcoal portrait sketches. Dogs, celebrities, rock stars, children and relatives are just some of the customers favoured objects.
Few tourists exploring Chiang Mai, which is often called “Rose of the North”, will not leave this historical provincial capital without having purchased a lifelike, personalized charcoal pencil portrait.
Those unfortunate visitors having forgotten to buy such an everlasting artwork still have the option ordering commissioned pencil drawings online at very affordable rates.
Those interested buying quality custom portrait art online should e-mail their most special photo to one of the long-established, professional and reliable drawing services.
It is recommended to commission your charcoal portrait sketch through e-mail instead of using an impersonal online order system. Make also sure to first check out some of the suppliers recent work and if the prices are reasonable. The better portrait art ateliers will offer safe online payments through PayPal.
In general, completing charcoal artworks will take less than 10 working days. Most customers wont see the difference between their photograph and the completed charcoal pencil sketch!
