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.

Very easy going market. Nice selection of goods on offer, especially local textiles. Also a good choice for a cheap dinner as there are a range of food stalls down a side alley selling buffet-style plates for 10000 kip. If you're not adventurous enough for the buffet, at least try the sweet little coconut rice cakes you will see being... More

After5 pm or so the Main Street of Luang Prabang becomes totally pedestrianised. There are four continuous rows of stalls set up, with barely enough place for two people to walk abreast. You get mainly local handicrafts, t shirts with local logos, hoodies, shawls, scarves etc. Bargaining is the norm. This extends almost a couple of kilometres . Of on... More
