Wouldn't say this was a tourist attraction at all, it's just a local market for local people to buy their shopping. If you're self catering, come and buy!

Paid a visit to this local market only because our flight was delayed and we had 3 more hours to spend. We were in and out of the market in less than an hour.

It looks just like any local market in developing countries. Lots of local produce on sale. A bit stuffy and dirty. We did not buy anything

Worth a visit if you have few hours to spare or you just need to chalk up a visit to the local market. The OCK Pop Tok Living Craft Centre is nearby within walking distance. So you can combine the two visits.

We were lucky to visit the local market that most restaurants uses. Its quite big and very pretty, showing you most of the local and other more international ingredients. We went with a guide from the cooking class at BambooTree cooking classes and restaurant (check my review there). All merchants line up there products with beautiful effects. I wouldnt have been there by myself but with a guide, it was fun.

This is a local market where they buy their groceries. They also have handphone and hardware shops. If you have missed the morning market at luang prabang main street, this is a good alternative as it close later but much further from the main street.

At 5 pm a part of the Sisavangvong street is turned into a market. The vendors at the market are quite relaxed, so you can walk around looking without experiencing aggressive attempts to make you buy this and that. Lots of textiles in nice colors, handicraft and what you might expect at a market.

this is a local handicraft market located after the monument and the gardens. you will find alot of local items like fabrics, clothings handicraft and some fake good. you may haggle over the prices but dont expect too much discount. it is better then Dara Market.

We just stopped by for something that we did not get in the city (big toothpaste tube) but you do not need to go here for the market itself. Also for parking you scootet they charge 2000 Lak.

The Phosi market on the outskirts of Luang Prabang is a treat for the senses, though it was hard to see the pig embryos apparently removed from their mothers' wombs and used as food by some Lao people. Is this any worse than Westerners eating brain, sweetbreads, or tongue? The fruit and vegetables are freshly picked and sold by the farmers' wives it would appear. The greens glisten and observers can almost visualize the gardens where they were picked that morning. Many kinds of rice of course. Immaculate and easy to navigate. Thanks to our leader from the Tamarind Cooking School for taking us to this special market!

It was quite interesting to see what do locals get food and clothes wise. I was unfamiliar with half of the things displayed but that is the reason I enjoyed strolling around and discovering it all
