This market is made up of numerous stalls selling mostly fresh/raw foods and spices. It is probably best for those who are cooking in restaurants, homes, and homestays. There are a few souvenir stalls that sell the usual things at the usual prices. The salespeople...More

Desperate for some local food during your visit? This is the place to go. Already open in the early hours, the breakfast there will not disappoint you. With a diverse option of daily fresh produce, and cooked meat a necessity, you haven’t been to Luang...More
