I've always dropped by Vientiane night market whenever i had any chances from my trip to Laos. Gotta find those souvenirs u know? 🙂 Local snacks and nearby drinking place is a must for me too. Open daily except for rainy days.

You probably won’t find anything to buy here, mostly a local market of knock clothing and cellphone accessories. However, it’s a nice little walk and the river is absolutely beautiful at sunset. Buy a smoothie, walk the market, and sit on the riverbanks and enjoy...More

The night market is a great place to spend a couple of hours in the evening. Yes a lot of the stuff is the same but that means you can haggle more. Prices are cheap to start with. Had some great street food there last...More
