This review is quite late. The Luang Prabang Night Market comes alive at dusk until late in the evening. I find this night market more interesting and colorful compared to the Night Market in Vientiane. Even if you are staying in Luang Prabang only for a couple of days there is plenty of time to do your shopping here. My... More

Not your average market at all with lots of locally made products that you just have to have. The stall holders on the whole were very good and didn't hassle you, just the occasional one. Wonderful clothes, bags, jewellery etc and right at the end of the markets you can buy the most delicious fruit juices blended up for you... More

I loved visiting the night market whilst we were in Luang Prabang. To see it come alive as it nears sunset was such a sight. We picked up some lovely baby clothes for a fiend who'd just had a baby, bartering was easy and the stall holder so friendly. All sorts of things for sale, you could go crazy shopping... More

Went to these markets each night of the 4 nights I was in Luang Prabang and each night was equally as exciting as the previous night. On my first night before the markets were set up, I stopped to buy a dooner cover at a road side market. I was concentrating on my sale and then turned around to see... More

You can't go to Asia without a bit of bargaining at a market and luang prabang is a very nice one. Less hectic then the ones you will find in bigger cities, you can buy pretty much anything, clothing, jewellery, food etc. Just dont be shy about negociating prices! Expect to.pay about half the price you are told.

Nice market full of local habdcrafts, very well organized, and much less crowded than other Asian cities. Price is not cheap, but bargain is broadly accepted.

Definately worth a stroll through - every night you are there. There is such a lot of "stuff" there that you can hardly take it all in. Haggling for prices is the norm and you can get some fine bargains. Prices are much cheaper than in the shops. Didn't eat there (although a lot of folks were) as I preferred... More

It is big, taking over the long length of a wide street, two aisles of multi-coloured gazebos filled with local products covering every square inch available. Well lit with traditionally dressed ladies and children in attendance, it's a sea of colour and bustle. Shopping is not my thing, but this is a pleasurable place to stroll through. Don't agree with... More

The night market is lovely - definitely worth visiting. However, the street food (£10k and £15k kip) is not worth it at all. The food is greasy and not that well cooked. More worthwhile visiting a restaurant.

Loved the handmade items on sale in this market. I'm still sorry I did not buy some unique items I did not see elsewhere. Worth a visit.
