this market sets up late afternoon and when you walk though it, it seems to go on forever. Loads of souvenirs to suit any taste. Do bargain with them, but no where near as much as you would do in other countries. A lot of the same stuff, but also some good finds in-between... One of the nicest night markets... More

This is a vastly over rated event. Held on the main street every night from dusk until about 9.30, it has dozens, even hundreds of 'stalls' mostly selling the same over priced goods. Most of them purport to be made locally but many are imported en masse from China. The Hmong tribe goods are mostly genuine but much else is... More

A big market selling a lot of the same thing, every second stall sells those brightly coloured pouches and bags from thailand, or harem pants or artwork. Nevertheless, i love markets so enjoyed it, but if you are coming solely to see something different in every stall, then you will be dissapointed. The food section on the left side of... More

This place was at first a highlight of my trip... I love food! First night I did the buffet and it was ok. When I returned ready for a fish the second night I was kinda discussed to find a lot of the food (fish & pork included) was leftover from the previous night... and I don't think it was... More

One of the better night markets that I've visited in South East Asia. You get the feeling that many of the goods were actually made by the people selling them, rather than purchased in bulk from a Chinese retailer. Reasonable prices and some really beautiful finds.

Don't miss the chance to visit the market taking upfront some Lao Coffee at the corner on the city. Great opportunity to buy some souvenirs and enjoy the flair of the city.

It's one the best night markets in the south east Asia. The handicraft is really good quality and prices are very good but you have to know how to bargain. The best part is that the shopkeepers are not pushy like Thailand or Taiwan. It does get incredibly hot inside since they cover it and the heat gets channeled! In... More

Nice to see a night market that supports the minority groups in the area. Some unique things to buy, as well as the usual SEA stuff. Be careful of you are tall - the stalls are very low!

Great place to do all your souvenir buying in one go, cheap prices and most of this tuff won't be available any ware else. Tip, go for street food in the alley just left of the beginning of the market, best two dollar meal I ever had.

This market had a great atmosphere. All the usual things on sale but I liked the fact that we could look without being hassled. It's a very long market and the stalls are very close together and so you end up ducking your head under the canopies. Could be uncomfortable if you're really tall. It began to irritate me after...
