How to reach Wualai Saturday walking street?

This place's popularity is beyond compare, cherished by tourists and locals; this walking street elevates everyone's Saturdays. However, unlike other markets, Wualai Saturday walking street is set up just outside the town, almost 1.1 kilometres and is closed to vehicles during the operational hours to foster a more down-to-earth, humble yet enjoyable experience.

So, if you're travelling by your personal or rented vehicle, you need to be prepared to walk a lot to reach the place as parking is mostly full and the area is far. The other popular option is opting for public transport, especially the 'red two-line truck', which costs around 30-40 Baht or you can take a B2 bus for 15 Baht or an air-conditioned bus for 20 Baht, or opt for Arcade Transport Station, many options available to facilitate your trip to this incredible event/setup of the week where you let loose and enjoy every bit of it from shopping to food to strolls.
