Gift & Specialty Shop
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.

  • This is an interesting and fun walk in the evening. Lots of stalls with clothing and electronics for sale. Street food is available. You can see the sun go down over the Mekong River from the market.
  • Lively night market which open daily. Plenty stalls selling clothes and souvenirs. Popular place for the locals to hang out in evenings.
  • Also known as walking street, this is the local night market. Walk further along the river towards the big statue and into the new development where the nice restaurants are and inside you'll find the new night market "walking street 2"
  • City bustle on a warm night. Decent prices. Good for cheapish food
  • A famous place for tourists. A lot of handicraft products are on sale by local people.
