We arrived after dinner and looked for BeerLao t-shirts. Choice offered by the different vendors never matched when you asked for the shirt they offered in the size you wanted. Remember to try stuff on if possible because sizing is way different; go one size larger. Bargaining is a must and they don't object if you are polite.

I've travelled all through Vietnam and Laos now. All the markets were the same until I got to Luang Prabang! They just seemed better and different things to choose from. I bought 2 pillow cases, a laos tshirt, slippers, beautiful scarves and found a local artist and bought a gorgeous elephant watercolour - im still OMG over it. Definitely worth... More

If you visit LP then just schedule it and Do it. No schedule option should leave out this market. It doesn't matter that its not the Chiang Mai Sunday night market or any other. It's simply another must experience. Visit the smoothie wall, the Ori Bakery and flow between permanent businesses and the 5-10pm (17:00-22:00) crowd. It can be done... More

I loved Luang Prabang. The people were lovely, the food was delicious and the countryside stunning. All bars and restaurants were great. Go to the Living Land to plant rice and plough fields with buffaloes. Kuang Si falls is wonderful but go early and hire a driver. The market is lovely and the vendors aren't too pushy.

It was worth taking a stroll through the markets to see all the colours and lights although it seemed to be full of the same things that are available in the shops during the day. Just more stuff you dont need.

Luang Prabang's Night market is a most fascinating , pulsating place from dusk till God knows when, I was there until midnight and it was still buoyant. Cheap but tasty street food, clothing, souvenirs, handicrafts really everything is available. Lots of youngsters from all corners of the world, eating, drinking, mingling, making friends unbelievable atmosphere. I guess the first to... More

In contrast to Chiang Mai this market is not too busy. There was a wide selection of products and prices were good. I really liked the Laos silk

There is a huge selection of things at the market and the people are very relaxed and not in your face at all. That's the way of Laos. They bargain , but it's nice to not be to hard a negotiator as they need the money more than most any tourists.
