Though it's not as big as the one in Chiang Mai Thailand, it's definitely worth the effort to walk down their aisles. Also, there is a street just off of it where they have great prices on local food. The benches were always filled with world travelers. I enjoyed talking with people from different places and hearing of their particular... More

Probably the neatest and most well organised market on our travels so far. Lots of different items to buy here, as in the markets all over thailand it's the same stuff cropping up over and over. We bought quite a few nice bits here for hardly anything. Not worth haggling all the time. Spent a few evenings here over a... More

I have never seen such a pretty well organized night market. Most venders have red canopies over top which seems to make the whole area glow at night. A great selection of lots of different cultural items from the local people. I found the best part of the night market was the food alley that took off from one of... More

We have been traveling around Asia for the last 3 months and we always visit local markets. I have never been to such a relaxed market ever! it was an absolute pleasure to be able to look at local crafts with out being hounded into buying . Make sure you visit food street for local treats.

But different. Yes the markets are quiet long and boring but the locals rely on peoples purchases. I feel that some of the stories about jewellery and other items being made from missile shrapnel and air craft ruins are bogus - even though I still purchased - made from aluminium not steel and titanium... not to mention seeing the same...

This is a great place to take a walk while waiting to find the right place to eat. You can find all kinds of trinkets and gifts. Make sure you get a fruit shake at the park from one of the many shake/sandwich sellers. My favorite was banana, oreo and coffee! The best thing: the sellers are not pushy or... More

They shut down almost half a mile long of street and sell items that are similar to the other 100+ vendors. Very pricey for street market value. Since quite a few tourists are visiting, so they jack up all prices. Only a few items stand out, like the foldable lamps and wood carvings that i can't pack into my luggage,... More

I cannot say enough about how impressed I was by this market and how enjoyable of an experience it was. The market sold the typical touristy souvenirs and such, but the ambiance was like no other market I've been to (and I've been to quite a few). It was so quiet; you couldn't hear anything louder than whispers. The vendors... More

For me night markets in Asia is pretty much the same, almost the same things but I still like them. The best thing about this night market was that there was so much amazing food and especially the buffet! You can eat buffet for 15000 kip and there is so much food to choose between! We ate there every night... More

The Luang Prabang night market has all it takes for a tourist to shop - from souvenirs, to trinklets to artifacts and clothing, the night market is charming and a place to shop under one stretch of a road. Though one cannot compare this market with the others in Thailand, Hong Kong etc,,as it is too small, but it definitely... More
