More than just a market

Loved this night market. The food is fantastic, you can fill up a bowl with anything you want from a wide selection of food for the equivalent of £1.50. It's very hot and chaotic... read more

if you want to do shopping, and especially buy things more expensive than the normal, you can go there. The market is for sure beautiful, full of colors, and locals people, but it is also a big trap for tourist.... so i would say must be seen once, for the scene....

Loved this night market. The food is fantastic, you can fill up a bowl with anything you want from a wide selection of food for the equivalent of £1.50. It's very hot and chaotic but that is the reality of an Asian night market. The section section displaying all the clothes was great. My secon favourite market in South East... More

A lot of the goods at the night market are overpriced, definitely try to barter down. (Shouldn't be difficult, some sellers actually bartered their own price down for me!) The selection of trinkets and souvenirs and textiles is great though and after I'd left Laos I found myself regretting not buying more in Luang Prabang while I had the chance.... More

As we live in Asia we didn't buy much but loved that non of the vendors bother you to purchase and are very friendly. We bought the lovely aluminum brackets made from bomb casings and the elephant slippers. I loved the baby quilts as so much work went into them.

We kept coming back to this night market almost every night during our stay in Luang Prabang. We enjoyed shopping in the market for souvenirs, clothes etc. Like most night markets in Asia, bargain is a must to strike a "good" deal, especially if you buy more than 1 or 2 pieces.

You can't avoid the night market if you wanted to. It takes up several blocks of the main street, and it goes on every night. It is extremely frustrating when trying to get from one end of town to the other, with everyone stopping in an extremely crowded space. And it is even more frustrating for anyone over 5ft tall:...

It's a fun and colorful walk through the night market - tall people beware, my boyfriend (187cm) had to bend his head to get through. It's too bad that it is very repetitive and everyone sells the same things. Also, make sure to haggle! You can even start lower than half the offering price and try and settle at half... More

Really enjoyed markets - but stifling hot in May. Got to try the Coconut Dutch Pancakes! And hunt down the alley that has multiple buffets for very good cheap food - lots of vegetarian 😀👍

Busy happy atmosphere lots of things to eat/buy just like all the other night markets :) there is one place that has a 'fill your plate buffet' for 10000 kip if you want to eat for cheap.
