Alright

Been to better markets but it's something to do while you are there. Lots of the same stuff. The scarfs are awesome that I ended up with four.

We really enjoyed the night market, you can find spices, souvenirs, clothes, everything. Vendors and their families are very laidback so you don't feel the hassle that you encounter in other markets in the region. I wish we could go back!

Traditional lao treats are offered up on long tables ,large buffet style . Food is great and very cheap and always interesting because you never know who is going to sit down at your table and start the conversation while enjoying your Beer Lao.

We enjoyed our evening strolls through the markets and bought some great gifts and some lovely homewares to take home with us. We found that there was lots of variety too. Being used to the crazy busy night markets in Thailand, we loved how peaceful and quiet these markets are. You can take your time and you aren't getting jostled... More

After visiting Vietnam and its markets in both Saigon and Hanoi I was very impressed with this one. Still great value, with a little bartering, but the products seem to be better quality and the store holders a lot friendlier. Only trouble is trying to find T shirts to fit as I think their XL is by the locals typical... More

A long street in the centre of Luang Prabang, with dozens or maybe even hundreds of sellers. Unfortunately most of them try to sell almost the same products - cheap apparel, wooden and metal products, souvenirs, food. Worth a visit after 6pm.

It's worth a go! The food and shakes are cheap and amazingly tasty!! Don't eat before! Market opens at 4pm but best time to go is 6-9pm. The souvenirs are okay, negotiating is possible. The clothes are the worst quality though. Bought three pairs of pants, all ripped within 2 days.

The night markets were a beautiful way to view the local handicrafts. Vibrant cloth and artwork were available along with smaller trinkets from surrounding areas.

Most night markets in Asia have evolved in to a "marketing" experience, where a few vendors fill all the stalls. This still has individual spaces rented often by the people making their own items. They discount so deeply, I would sometimes give a tip to the seller, after a particularly hard bargaining session. Great fun, if you like that sort... More
