It's a pleasant way to spend an evening - people watching, eating fresh crepes cooked for you at the stalls along the way, and looking at the selection of items in the market. Compared to other markets I've been to, it is very relaxed, but a lot of what is being sold is repeated throughout the market and not locally handmade. There are also however little treasures mixed in like the paintings and handstitching and some local weaving and textile items. We didn't buy a lot because everyone had told us to wait until we got to CHiang Mai and the Night Market - well that was a bad decision on our part as we were so disappointed by the night market, prices were higher, much of what was being sold was of no interest to us and so we missed out - so if you see something you like in Luang Prabang but it there and carry it - fabric especially rolls up tight and is light. and oh yes, carry a flashlight with you as the power goes out, but if you have a light then business will go on.
