  • Huge! Sells all sorts of handicrafts and also street food including some rather delicious coconut pancakes. Mmmmm.  more »
  • We frequented this market by twice, and after having others especially in Vientiane and another in Hanoi (Viet Nam) we you recommend to visit because you will find a real artisanal products, which is far to be the case for other markets that we visit.

  • The market is not great, are tents assembled on the street is closed to cars at night. The fabrics sold are beautiful. Watch the visit to buy some souvenirs from Laos.

  • Calm place unlike Cambodia and Bangkok..Nobody probably you to buy anything..Reasonable rates..Mostly traditional stuff. lots of handicrafts and wide selection of clothes- Mostly traditional .LAO people are calm and good to deal with..Food street along with is awesome. Great deal of photo opportunity..You never can miss this. Avoid good looking restaurants long side..They Are kind of pricey. Overall. Value for money and good place to shop for souvenirs..
  • Huge market set up all over the road. It is slow going to get through all the stalls. Not as many tourists as I thought there would be. Stall sellers are not pushy. Try negotiating with one stall for a price. If you don't get the price you want, there is sure to be another stall selling the same thing down the road but you may have to raise your bottom price a bit. Resist the temptation to buy heaps of things. You probably won't use them when you get home and few people want your holiday souvineers as a gift.
  • A welcome change from the usual bustling. Quiet people they let you look and shop in peace. Quality products. Great food too. Very nice.
  • A must when in Luang Prabang. We loved to see the city so alive at night. And you could find great unique things there some of which we bought to get back to the house and some as gifts and souvenirs.
  • A long stretch of night market that gets crowded during the night, selling a lot of souvenirs, handicrafts and local products. Advisable to get souvenirs here as they have more varieties than Vientiane. Food market wasn’t quite disappoint and less choices available.
