As good if not better than most markets. Some beautiful hand crafts and cloths. The stall owners are happy to bargain but terrible seeing tourists arguing for what seems less than USD1. One Starbucks less on the return home and you will come out even and better karma with the locals.

Whether you're a big shopper or not, you should experience the night market. It's great fun for bargaining & interacting with locals, plus you get to see the full array of handicrafts on offer from the area. If you are doing serious shopping, definitely go there first & check out prices - sets you up very well for effective shopping... More

There's plenty of vendors, though not a lot of variety. The setup is nice to walk through, though not as nice as the Chiang Mai night market. Try the coconut pancakes that the locals make right in front of you! They're the little macaron-looking pastry stacks in banana leaf cups! Don't bother with any pre-made pastries or bread desserts -... More

Lots of stalls to buy souvenirs of all sorts from. Resist buying from the stalls nearest the end and haggling will get 10 to 20% off without too much effort. Nice stroll in the cooler evenings.

There seems to be one company that supplies every stall with merchandise. Lots of stalls all selling the same stuff, much of it probably made in China. There is some tasty food, very reasonable priced.

This night market is big buy verities are limited. Many vendors sells the same items and you must bring down at least 70% of price quoted. They think people of Oriental origins are rich and quote us very high price tag.

A nice place to walk around at night, before or after dinner. There are lot of Asian artifacts, fabrics and foods stalls. It is very safe to walk around at night.

Too crowded for us. I have to stoop to walk through. Some better prices on some things, but the neighborhood is just too expensive with nothing but tourist. Luang Prabang has much more to offer

I looooved this night market. You know how you get hassled at night markets anywhere to buy anything? That doesnt happen here yet. You say no to something, you walk away and that is it. No one badgers you, no one is asking you to look. The vendors are kind, soft spoken and reasonable. The vibe was just perfect and... More
