  • Go are attracted to go begging after the flow of people and markets. Is focused on food products, such as skewers for eating or crafts shop too little was and was. A place of mainly local people shop because it seemed likely to be disturbing you feel passage narrow roads filled with products to spread or to so much in droves and soon returned. Fruits and banana leaves, made and sold quickly, I felt the difference in culture.

  • I prefer this market to the night. It is located in the city center, just after the Palace. It is nice to stroll toward the 9 / 10 h in these narrow streets, to discover the fruits, vegetables and especially the stalls of fish, meat, cakes with coconut, not to mention a few animals sometimes still alive and more exotic.

  • Small food outlets for local community. It is found interspersed between morning market stalls. There are very limited food varieties. Most are selling grilled fish or meat. It is uncomparable to the night food market in terms of size or food varieties. By 12 noon, most stalls are closed.
  • What’s worth is you could see where locals buy their fresh staples, fish, vegetables also freshly cooked food, herbs, wooden goods and even some clothes were available. I bought rice rolls from there and loved it. At the end of the street you could breakfast lao style with traditional coffee and tea.
  • An amazing market selling fresh fish, meat, fruit, vegetables, and much more
  • Authentic Lao market definitely worth a visit - herbs, spices, produce, fish, meats, insects & some other goods. Amazing morning market!
  • Mostly sells fresh and dried products. You can get their local rice, food, tea etc here. Local prepared food is available as well.
