Luang Namtha was the first province we visited in Laos so we were very excited. The foods in this Night Market tasted good, freshly prepared and were cheaper than in night markets in Luang Prabang, Vang Vieng & Vientiane. Seasoned mixed vegetables & bamboo shoots with sesame 5,000 Kip per dish. Sticky rice 2,000 Kip per portion. For other foods, they asked if we wanted to eat there or pack away, so they could serve in dishes or boxes. Friendly dogs were around and happily ate what we gave.

The bus from Dien Bien Vietnam stopped in a station 8km from here so we took a tuk tuk for 50,000 Kip. I thought this market was dirty but when I visited the night market and the night food market in Luang Prabang, it's dirty the same. When in Laos, I don't expect too much if I want to eat in a market.

Bought a selection of food from different stands. Food was pretty good and tasty. Beware of the toilets though, by any standards they were quite grim.

Not much to see here. The food is server from thermos flasks so is often cold. The range isn't great. Cannot really recommend coming here. The only thing bright point was a full, freshly cut cooked and piping hot water crispy rotisserie duck for 30k kip. Great value and really delicious.

This market place is just ok ! ? ... but nothing else. Some food is acceptable and some farangs/foreigners can be seen eating & drinking there.. (I would Not . . . )
Actually the place needs a complete CLEAN UP immediately.
Stray dogs & cats are roaming around and are taking the left over food from the tables once the customers are leaving ! Crrr.....Will NEVER come back !!! and can sincerely not recommend until the City Council is doing his home work...
