The Night Market in Luang Prabang is just wonderful! The atmosphere is amazing, it's real quiet and serene, NO HASSLING, no aggressive marketing of merchandise. The crowds were not really that big, I didn't feel claustrophobic at all and didn't have to crawl around the place one meter at a time. Don't get me wrong - this is still tourist... More

The night market opens around 5:30 and closes around 9. Very well organized with each vendor under an identical pop up tent. Most vendors have similar merchandise. Some local and some imported. Nothing very exciting but fun one the less. Food stands are on the outside lanes. coconut pancakes are a yummy must. Crowded but bargains available at the close... More

Every evening part of the main street becomes a lively night market. There is a wide range of locally produced products at good prices. At both ends of the market are stalls selling great smoothies, sandwiches and crepes. The stall holders are very nice and not at all pushy. On a couple of the side streets off the market there...

After spending a few months in Thailand and their loud and crowded night markets and walking streets, this was a nice change. Although many of the items for sale are the same all over South East Asia the Luang Probang market has a few unique items. Look for the bracelets, key chains, spoons and bottle openers made from bombs. It's... More

The night market has a wide variety of local products for sale - clothing, jewellery, bags, hand made paper products, paintings, scarves and wraps. There is much repetition of the goods on sale so bargaining is essential to get best price. No manufactured goods eg electronics at all. Great atmosphere and well worth at least one stroll.

The night market in Luang Prabang is big enough not to be too crowded and offers a satosfactory selection of Asiam style clothing and souvenirs. Vendors there are very nice amd they do not harrass the visitors. Around there you can also find decent food for good price, some buffets for 10,000 or 15,000 kips are set up, pretty good!... More

Well, as a non shopper (I leave that to the wife who is an expert :-) I found these markets amazing. The array and quality of the products were very impressive with very little pressure from the usual touting that I have seen elsewhere in SEA.

From my point of view, Luang Prabang night market is way a lot better than Vientiane night market, in term of scale and price. The price is cheaper as there are ways more competitors selling the same items, you have tonnes and tonnes of choices to make before you purchase. As for some items, it can only be found in... More

This market seemed to go on & on with mostly very similar cheap factory made souvenirs etc for sale. Occasionally you come across something more interesting - handmade &/or good quality, eg. we bought a black lacquered/carved box with beautiful chopsticks as a gift for our son - we had paid almost twice the price in a shop for a...

The night market is very nice, you can find all kinds of souvenirs as well as snacks and coffee. In an alley, close to the baguette vendors but on the other side of the road, there is all kinds of food. Here you can fill a bowl with food from a buffet table for only 15.000 kip! With everything from... More
