The Luang Prabang night market has all it takes for a tourist to shop - from souvenirs, to trinklets to artifacts and clothing, the night market is charming and a place to shop under one stretch of a road. Though one cannot compare this market with the others in Thailand, Hong Kong etc,,as it is too small, but it definitely... More

Starting @ 5pm. this market gets into full swing offering many colourful hand made items. The markets are on the main road in the centre of town. The locals sell a wide variety of local textiles & ethnic Lao handicrafts. A lot of the market stalls are the same. Shop around for a good price. Take small notes to pay... More

I have been to a number of night markets in Asia and found this one at Luang Prabang unique and orderly. It is not as attractive, stylish and commercialised as Shilin Night Market in Taipei that distinct itself with crowds of young university students, trendy cosmetic stores, lady garments, latest model phone gadgets, delicious take-aways, big discounts, colorful disco lights,...

This market creates a nice buzzy atmosphere, colourful and lots of souvenirs to buy. When we went they had the 60 days celebration of the border with Vietnam ceremony (mid March).

Everything about Luang Prabang was a little bit magical (except the food poison I got, but thats another story). We really enjoyed the Night market. The stall holders weren't pushy, and didn't seem like they were in it to scam to tourism industry. They were polite and sensible with their pricing, making it a true pleasure to wander through and...

From 5pm to approximate 11pm you can visit this in the main street. Nice market, but not something really special. Like every other market, make sure to bargain.

I really enjoyed the hustle and bustle of the night market. It was really interesting to see all of the handmade products the stall owners were selling and they were all very willing for you to haggle. There were plenty of food stalls around too which made it a perfect way to spend the evening.

My second visit to LP and third for fourth to LP night market. Yes, it's same same, but you're not being pressured, the people are friendly and they're trying to make a living. Pick up some gifts for home at the markets.

The night market is a long stretch starting from the Main post office and serpentine down the road. It is open every day from 5 pm until 10 pm. Truly a shoppers delight for handicraft, souvenirs, silk stoles and a host of other locally made items. Most stalls are manned by women and prices are bargainable up to about 30%.... More
