I went to Asiama gallery while I was was waiting for a nearby show to start. I was amazed by the owners knowledge of his pieces and his passion for them brought the whole place alive with history.

I did buy a statue from the Gallery but what was the most valuable to me were the insights shared by the owner of Asiama. Both on the local and regionala ntiques scene and what one could expect. Once the trust was established that I would not be pushed into buying a bogus antique, the choice of what to acquire... More

We lucked out and were able to meet both owners, a French photographer/collector and Laotian American textiles professor. They were friendly and approachable and provided background about the pieces we bought. We also asked them about authenticity of textiles at night market (given the attractive prices there).

The collection is stunning and this gallery stands out among the other shops in Luang Prabang. If you are looking for the best you can find in Laos this is the place to go, in fact one of the owners literally wrote the... More

One of the most beautiful galleries I have visited. The space reflects the monk like, gentle, serene nature of French photographer Alain Menoni who owns it. A passionate collector of all things rare, old and beautiful, Menoni's Asiama is a must visit while in Luang Prabang.

This is a lovely gallery with a very cultivated collection of Asian art and craft antiques. Along with a gallery of the owner/photographers B&W photographs which are also for sale. The prices seemed reasonable and the items beautiful. I really enjoyed browsing and happily found a treasure to add to my collection of purchases from my travels in Asia. Highly... More

The gallery also displays cultural objects from all over Asia from India across China to Japan, and throughout Southeast Asia. A collector for several decades Menoni has traveled and collected curios along the way. He is... More

Beautifully captured photos of Laos. The shop is full of antiques and photos at really reasonable prices. The post cards are cute and super affordable if your on a budget. The owner was very friendly and helpful. Well worth a visit.

Gallery Asiama is a small, impeccably arranged antiques gallery a stone's throw away from the Mekong. Its marvelous location is done justice by the authentic & carefully selected ethnic Asian artifacts for sale. Many pieces are superb and one could spend hours looking at them while listening to the stories told by the knowledgeable French owner. Each piece has been... More
