Loved this market. So relaxed, no pressure to buy, calm, gentle with some nice choice souvenirs etc. My only concern was one stall that was selling animal parts, no idea of they were real or not, but a baby rhino horn was one of the grisly items for sale. Very pleased to say no one was even looking at the... More

We were looking for souvenir items of t-shirts and refrigerator magnet. It was a good thing that we decided to do the long walks of checking the night market from end to end. We finally got the better prices of shirts and ref magnet which I did not for discount. Meaning, the prices that were given to us by some... More

Really enjoyed this market, visited each night we were there. A lot of repetition but easy to walk around and not too busy!

It starts at 5, but form 5 pm to 8 pm it is packed!! better to go after 8 and be able to walk freely. Some shops close at 9 but most at 10!

The night market is huge. It takes up the main road through Luang Prabang. It's way more relaxed than other markets I've been to, no one hassles you if you so to look at something.. they just let you get on with it and only start selling to you when you all them to. You do need to haggle though..... More

We wandered with our children for them to buy souvenirs and gifts for friends. The children did their own bartering for a good price and had some fun. They say everything is made locally, I hope it's true. The merchandise is certainly more authentic-looking than Vientiane night market which just has stuff that looks like it was "made in China"....

Is ok to visit and buy some souvenirs. However, you can't bargain past a certain point no matter in how many vendors you try. Just for tourists.

After arriving from noisy Hanoi straight to the night market we were really amazed. Very comfortable and peaceful in asian standards.

Night Market spans a long road in central Luang Prabang. Narrow street and difficult to stop and browse given the "human traffic". Some nice quality local goods but many selling the same merchandise. Definitely worth a visit.
