Great fun, an absolute MUST in Luang Prabang. Unlike so many similar markets elsewhere in SE Asia, the salespeople (98% women) do NOT apply ANY pressure whatsoever. Therefore, you can linger at any stall you like, admiring the beautiful handmade wears as long as you like without feeling hassled. The prices are also very reasonable. A fun, colourful, relaxing way... More

What you do in the evening in Luang Prabang! Lots of fabric work, jewellery etc and very cheap. Obviously different levels of quality (the duvet cover I bought fell apart on its first wash!) but at these prices, not a big deal.

I have been several times and still enjoy a visit here. Put your bargaining skills to the test! Some interesting things to buy as presents.

Plenty, plenty stalls - especially handicrafts. Get a fresh fruit juice, walk down the road one side and return (walk back) on the other side. Buy some to help the locals. Colourful. Interesting to observe sellers with their family (kids and babies) doing the business.

The Night Markets are a great way to make use of a night in Luang Prabang. The are open from sun down to around 10pm. The markets offer an opportunity to buy clothing and a variety of souvenirs. Down the alleys there are the backpacker cheap eats! The atmosphere is great and being located in the dead centre of town,... More

The Luang Prabang night market is one long street where locals set up a little stall and either sell funny souvenirs or all kinds of things you see on an asian market and as well serve/sell food. There is a huge variety on things to buy. It's a great place to buy souvenirs cheap and get a closer look to... More

This night market has amazing food. There is a lady at the end of the row that makes fresh noodle rolls that are simply to die for. In front of the man selling dumplings, a lady makes soup. Pick your veggies and she will make you a nice soup to warm you up.

On the main street you have lots of stalls selling various crafts, etc. plus multiple booths selling fruit smoothies and sandwiches. There are a bunch of cooked-food places, along the side street heading towards the river (right across from the smoothies booths). Plenty of good choices, lots of grilled foods - highly recommended. Only warning - watch out for the... More

SUMMARY: We accidentally came across the night bazaar which is organized once or twice a week on the main road through town. There were a few nice local things to be purchased but many of the things there were the usual cheap tourist rubbish that can be found at most bazaars. What I enjoyed the most was trying different street... More

Nice market to buy your souvenirs from - it is on every evening and impossible to miss if you do any walking to or from most restaurants you might take in for dinner. Reasonable prices to start with and good bargaining - easy to deal with.
