    If you are looking for a new handbag, or some material, or some gold jewellery, or something in particular - then this is the place to go. But I wouldn't really consider it a 'tourist' must do! It was...  more »

    I felt in Laos and best shopping centers with tourists go to the store is not so much. Not even anything else that as a souvenir. Ridicule while cooling, cooling and there is also a little Cafe, so nice. And is still nothing to Laos, meisou example (name Gen. Yu products) on the first floor, so look around and far more fun.

    not much of a mall, but it contains the morning market which extends around it, mostly in front of and on the sides, and up to the street near the bus station. this is where mainly Lao people shop and has respectively sized clothing of contemporary Laotian style, basically western, so you you have to look around. here are there a few interesting stands with unique Laotian crafts. If you are looking for fresh food and better deals, go to the Khua Din market (it is easy to miss because it is down a side street) that is just a block away by the bus station.

    Centrally located. Just about everything can be found. Good food court on the 3FL annex.

    More of a market. Kind of run down. But you can haggle here. Definitely a local place.

    It's disorganized. I was surprised there was air con. Only two floors are occupied. You'll find a lot of Lao clothes, a Boots copy cat, a MiniSo in front (which is nice), a MiniSo knock-off in the back, and a lot of gold on the second floor.

Where to stay in Vientiane

Pretty little Vientiane offers a good range of accommodations, with most either mid-range or upmarket hotels by national standards. Close to the riverfront sit the grandest of the bunch, with newly built high-rise hotels and boutiques set in old French colonial buildings. Move away from the water a little to find some standard, unassuming hotels, mixed in with a few more boutiques and high-rises overlooking the prettier plazas and along the main boulevards. For budget options, look at the guesthouses and hostels on the side streets around Rue Setthathilath, but make sure to reserve your room early to avoid disappointment.
