Vientiane Night Market, Vientiane

(1.4/5 based on 220+ reviews on the web)
Test your bargaining skills at Vientiane Night Market, which emerges every evening on the riverbank. As the sun sets, vendors start putting up their signature red tents on the promenade. Most of the goods--clothes, footwear, accessories for cellphones, and handbags--seem to cater to locals, but you can also find statues and paintings of Buddha, bottles of spirits preserving snakes and scorpions, and hand-crafted items clearly meant for tourists. The only thing you can’t buy from the stalls is food, but if you're feeling peckish, you can always check out the restaurants across the street. Our Vientiane trip itinerary planner makes visiting Vientiane Night Market and other Vientiane attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • Occurring along the Mekong River and in the evening, the street is. Accessories such as clothes and accessories that stand out clearly inferior product is small, and is not recommended. Just enjoy the atmosphere good.

  • To be, for people who like it, locals should be out there. At the stands there are clothes, jewellery and decoration, to electronics, to have everything. The paintings are recommended. There for 3,-to have and are really well done. We are then in the bar with the large sign ' Carlsberg ' gone. From up there you have a complete overview of the market once.

  • Typical Southeast Asian night market, lots of street vendors and the prices here are very cheap. No reason not to check it out.  more »
