Yawn. What's to get excited about in a night market? The usual tourist stuff. Cleaner and more compact than the average Asian market. Nearby crepe stands make it tolerable.
No counterfeit DVD's, sunglasses, or purses seen.

People who comment the market is for tourist miss the point. The whole economy in Luang Prabang is based on tourist dollars. The markets for the locals contain items tourists would not want to buy. The Lao people are very gracious and the market gives you a chance to meet and interact. If your sole judgment is based on whether you can cut a few pennies haggling with a local, you miss the point.

We were in Luang Prabang for the New Year’s celebration (April 2013). You may read about New Year’s in Laos and you may have seen pictures but it does not compare to being there for the three day festival. If you are in Luang Prabang for the New Year, be prepared to get wet, laugh a lot and have the time of your life! Food is great!! Sticky rice, green papaya salad, and Beer Laos. The nightly market was great with many many selections. Tip: try to go the nightly market at least twice. The first night to look around and see all of the things being offered and then shop to buy on the second night. Things we brought home: hand embroidered bed spreads & hats, journals with handmade paper, and handmade/embroidered baby skirts and shoes. The people in Luang Prabang were very friendly and helpful. Yes, there is an ATM in Laung Prabang, along with several money exchange places and a lot backpackers. I really enjoyed Laos and look forward to returning. We used Naga Express to coordinate our visit to Laung Prabang, Laos and I was very happy with all of the arraignments. Our guide and driver were great and everything went very smoothly. Thanks Naga Express for making our trip arraignments and our experience in Laos memorable!

I went to this night market in saturday night. There was a lot of Laotian which sold here like bracelet from the bomb material, traditional cofee, wovens, tshirt and handicraft. You should bargain into one-third price, belive me! Even I am Asian and looks like local I got les than 50% price. It would be higher if I'm white I think. You are also able to find local food here!

The night markets are packed with tourist suvenier items like bags, t shirts and handicrafts etc. Bargain before you buy and can go as low as 50% at times!
