Luang Prabang the best city I have ever visited. So many Buddhist temples, peaceful people so serene. Alms giving in the mornings a must. The night market stall holders are so humble. So many things to see. Two rivers converge here and bring produce to the markets. Children dive from bridges and play in the water. I felt at home... More

it is set out really well and is spacious so enjoyable. Although it goes on for a long time and we figured after the first ten stalls it was pretty much the same stalls over and over again. Sell all bits, clothes, magnets, coffee.. Won't spend very long there I can't imagine, luckily it's in the centre so tied it... More

The Luang Prabang Night Market is a great cultural experience. It was by far our favorite night market of all the cities we visited in SE Asia. The prices were very reasonable and the inital quote in itself was cheap, but you are able to comfortably talk the vendors down anywhere form 20-50%. The prices drop and haggling success is... More

This is the worst night market in Asia. All they sell is crepes. I am not in Paris eating breakfast, I do not want the crepes! Everywhere I go they try to make me eat crepes. THEY ARE GROSS! I DO NOT WANT! I wanted Lao food but there was none. I also did not like the handicrafts. They charge... More

The LP night market isn't the biggest but the haggling are hawking are much less stressful than in other markets that I've been to. The shopkeepers are polite and and smiley. Their initial price proposals are seldom outrageous but you can still skim perhaps 20 or 30 percent, just for the fun of it. I've been to a village nearby... More

It's great to just wander around. You can find things from all over Laos. It's not a tourist only type of thing either. There are locals wandering around to looking for a deal. Remember prices are negotiable.

The colour and atmosphere in this market is amazing. No hard sell from the smiling happy locals selling their wares and a real bargain. Tip for westerners if you are a large size for tee - shirts buy extra large.

A nice way to spend an hour or two strolling through the market, many local pantng, artefacts, coffee, clothes. A bit unfortunate for me, a six foot two european as i could nt fnd any shirts, vests or t shirts in my size. Never mind, still a nice place to visit and its relatively hassle free.

One of the best markets I've been to in Asia. Not the biggest one but they sell a lot of nice souvenirs and jewelery. I wanted to buy everything, but (only) bought 5 things. At the beginning there's some nice and cheap food as well, where you can eat as much as you can for 15.000.
