Its a good market. They have typical marked stuff; souvenirs, lao coffee, snake-wine, bags, childrens clothes, adult clothes, sarongs, things with elephants on them, jewellery, bags - nothing is fake here, everything is man made and in eco-friendly fabrics. Its what I think an Asian marked should be like; hand-made things and friendly with lively colours and lively people working there. And they are not pushy, as many other market salesmen/women are! You have to bargain, it's part of the game, but not too much, as this is what they live of, and the prices are cheap. You can pay in kip or in USD. I went there 3 times while I visited Luang Prabang, and bought most of my souvenirs there, so I had to drag them around for 5 more weeks before going back home to give them away. And EVERYBODY at home loved their presents.

I just loved it. For a chubby person the clothing will be a bit small, but you'll always find something :) It's just great. You have to go there when in Luang Prabang.

We are here for a vacation for two nights and visited this night market for all two nights. The market shops basically sell similar things along the road (mostly souvenirs, handmade bags/t-shirts/art crafts..along with fruit shakes/drinks/crepes...etc). The best thing I would say is the perfect location...easy to walk. It was a comfy walking paced lane with no cars disturbing you. All shops are bargainable, I would recommend you to compare prices although it is not that matters. Exp. I bought a long pant from one shop stand which costs 50,000 kip (6-7 dollars). While the stand nearby would sell the same thing for cheaper prices 30,000 kip (4 dollars)...well it is not that much of a big deal but don't rush. As said...along the street selling the same types of things...walk and relax...enjoy the nice atmosphere all along the road and you can decide later where to buy. :)

Great locations, great atmosphere, friendly people and unique experience!

Big market in terms of the size of the town.
starts around 6ish at night.
When you come from boat to luang prabang, the tuk tuk (costing 80 baht) will drop you in the town centre - the night market starts on this main street - stopping traffic .
Theres not many food stalls however, only fruit shakes etc at the very start of the street.
The restaurants along this street are the most expensive in the town also.
A lot of clothes, jewellery , and other souvener type things .
they put tents up so its undercover too (good for the rainy season!)

We loved it here in Luang Prabang and stayed 10 days. The markets are on every night and Saturday night is the biggest. The stalls line the streets with beautiful embroidered bags, pillow cases, table clothes, clothes etc. Each night there can be different stall holders and it is definitely expected for you to barter with the price they first tell you. I found that the first price was quickly dropped if you do not show interest and begin to walk away. I first went around and got some general prices and then did all my shopping in on go. I generally cut the price to a third and then went up from there if they did not accept it. Most accepted a third of what was first quoted. I went to Chaing Mai and Bangkok and found the prices were offered a lot cheaper the first time then in this market. You can get a lot of the same things all over Thailand that is in Laos if you need to do some more travelling. I found this night market a lot cheaper than the little Whiskey and Hmong villages. Great sandwiches and fruit juice market stalls.
