In all the night markets I have seen in southeast asia, this one contains the most unique stuff. Purchased most of my souvenirs from here!

This is a 'must do'. The market may be a little uncomfortable (narrow alleys between the stands) but the products are all local, good quality and so you support the community as well as get a bargain !

It's located on the main street of Luang Prabang. Most stalls open around 5-5.30pm. You're in the right place if you are looking for some simple souvenirs. The stalls are mostly selling the same stuff stall after stall. Some stalls are selling Laos tea which I find it a good souvenirs for friends. And yes, you can bargain but just... More

I needed bags for my kids and they had great ones. Their friends were jealous. The only drawback is that it has grown over the years, so it's like a 1/2 kilometer of the same offerings. Crowded and dodging the umbrellas covering the vendors are disappointing, but that's part of the experience. Definitely worth checking out. There is something for... More

A good place to shop for souvenirs. The markets in Laos are much more relaxed and laid back than any market I've ever been too. You can casually walk through the lanes and look at the goods on offer without being called at and hassled by the vendors.

This is a great market with a wide range of items. Many are locally made but there are the usual China imports. Yes you can negotiate, but also have a look at the people and be generous. A few dollars is not much but to the seller it can be quite a lot

The night market is a must to see and to buy. We bought great souviners there. Great bargens the all sell the same stuff but you won't find it else where in Laos.

While the market is narrow and crowded, it's full of beautiful, local handicrafts. And unlike the market in Vientiane, you won't find speakers, half-used bottles of perfume or obnoxious light-up toys. Decently priced and worth the visit.

Sure, the locals ALL make the exact same things and the repetition gets a little annoying. But I'm so glad I picked up my favorites of each handicraft, it was money well-spent.
