The famous night market is opened from 1700 to 2200 hours daily. There are easily a few hundred stalls selling a wide variety of handicrafts, Lao script t-shirts, silk scarves, embroidery, sculptures and so on. Its really a marvellous shoppers' haven for handicrafts.

I went here on my first night and it’s the usual fare you would expect to find. Haggling is a must. But I did get ripped off here mistakenly handing over 50000 instead of 5000 and the trader didn’t correct me.

This night market is one of the best we’ve been to. Most of the goods are made locally in the area. The silks, the bags and the drawings are wonderful.
