The night market is a great place to be at. We travelled to there every night. Many kinds of stands, colorful, safe and happy place. You can see there many tourists and it says everything.

Went through the night market on several occasions. Once to look and then to buy. There is a wide variety of goods on display and it was fun bargaining. The food area was interesting and there were lots of people eating at the 'buffet' area, which we didn't have time to do. Maybe next time.

The night market is big, and has a lot of different goods on offer, and the quality of the goods seems to be higher than on other night markets I have been to in Southeast Asia. Do not be hesitant in your bargening, the real price (falang price), will probably be between 1/3 and 1/2 of where the offer starts.... More

The night market takes over the Main Street by the National Museum, starting at one end with food: crepes and juices/smoothies, followed by two rows of merchants of lots of local items: scarves, purses, backpacks, table linens, some lamp shades (that fold for travel), silver jewelry, and everything with an elephant on it (shirts, pants, shorts..). The fabrics Lao women... More

A long walk in the heat and lots of bargains to be had. Make sure you negotiate price for best value. Same same but different.

Plenty of vendors every night - food, drinks, souvenirs of all kinds, handicrafts, clothes, scarfs, paintings, shoes, handbags, etc. etc. - you name it, they have it. Small vendors packed next to each other under plastic tents, all along the main road which was closed to traffic for this purpose every night; thus quite hot and stuffy. Easy bargain with... More

The market start around 6pm until 9.30pm. Sell mostly fabric stuffs from local. As usual, to get a good price, you need to bargain or use walk away trick to get 30-40% discount depends on the shop. E.g hanging mobile decorated in owl style. I was offered 75k and slowly bargain to 60 and when decided to walk, it dropped... More

The market opens at 5 and is a must when visiting Luang Prabang. Vendors line up offering local textiles, art, clothes, and so many other wonderful local souvenirs. Prices are great, and bargaining is acceptable.

Walked through the night market on a couple of occasions. There was not much pressure to buy and you had time to browse. Prices were reasonable once you haggle. Loved the food area and seeing all the different meats and parts of animals for sale that we don't usually see. Well worth a visit and a good place to buy... More
