    CULTURALLY RICH AND ORGANISED
    This was the most organized market. Families set up their stalls meticulously, the artisans are very gracious, their kids are with them, some doing homework, others napping. A high quality of local crafts, and the serenity of 🇱🇦- make sure you have room in your luggage, but read the restrictions before overloading with local artifacts.

    When you need a little shopping therapy on holiday
    Everybody loves a little shopping therapy when on holiday. Luang Prabang isn't a shopper's paradise but the local night market certainly fills a need. There's plenty on offer - fabrics (including clothes, sarongs, bags), carved wooden- and paper-based handicraft, figurines, souvenirs, etc. Visiting twice during our stay, my wife found a nice laptop bag that she liked while the kids enjoyed the experience of looking for good bargains. Speaking of bargains, things aren't necessarily as cheap as one might think but practice your bargaining skills and you might just do all right. The night market is located just a short walk from a small food court but street food stalls scattered in side streets lining the market catered to those feeling peckish.

    Buying and seeing local gifts at great prices
    Amazing place for local gifts and great prices. The gifts included clothes, bags, coasters, mats, paper umbrellas and nearby there were places to drink and eat. Well worth a visit if you are staying in Luang Probang

    Evolving in response to increased tourists, but still good crafts to be had!
    While the Luang Prabang Night Market has become a bit tainted with mass produced goods and predictably fake antiques, it still offers a better mix of authentic crafts than most markets in Asia. Especially good are the textiles, woven material, quilts, and embroidery. The wood craft is also good and there are some interesting paintings and artwork. Vendors are comfortable with bargaining and prices are relatively very reasonable. When we visiting in January, the place was crowded with tourists, but still pleasant.

    Well organized market
    Much cleaner in the food area that the market in Vientiane. Has some good music going and vendors are not overly pushy. Not a huge variety for sale. Loved the fixed store on the end by the food part that sold flavored whiskey - great small bottles ideal for gifts for family back home.

    Lots of things to buy here!
    My hotel being located five minutes away from here, I saw the changes here. In the evening, its lively, full of people selling stuffs, shoppers bargaining with them, etc. Stuffs sold are mostly clothings, few are selling jewelries, art works, vases, etc. In the morning and during the day, the vendors are gone, their merchandises tucked somewhere near this area. Attractions near the Night Market: Temples, National Theater, Palace, stairs to the mountain’s stupa and views. Highly recommended to visit.

    A pleasant night market to walk around
    When we visited Luang Prabang's ancient town, we were interested in both the night and morning markets, though the morning market seemed more authentic. The night market is situated in the heart of Luang Prabang, just a short walk from our hotel. Open every day from 5 PM to 10 PM, the major offerings of thiswalking market are local produce, handicrafts, mementos, and food and beverages. There's a large food court at the end of the street, offering a huge selection of dishes at extremely low costs.

    Enjoyable variety market
    Big variety of local product …especially fabrics of different tribes origins …some classic souvenirs like Buddha status of dozens variations. Went 3 times bought twice. Also night food market with broad variety. Definitely a to-do when in Luang Prabang.

    Colorful Market
    If there’s a morning market, there’s a night market. Luckily, the night market was just a few steps from the place I was staying. Oh my goodness! So much things to see. Very colorful and interesting. Most vendors selling the same stuff. There was one vendor who was the only one selling traditional dolls. I walked this night market twice, just to get my exercise and to kill time. Vendors were all friendly, inviting me to check out their products. I bought 2 pencil pouches, several teas and the dolls.

Obviously, these things come down to personal preference, but for me this was a disappointing market. It is very large and the stalls seemed to be never ending, however, I found that the majority had much the same thing eg painted bowls and t-shirts and didn't find anything special I wanted to buy.

The night market is just a crush of tourists and food stalls. It is not fun nor is it culturally rich. If you want to visit a fine market, go to the morning market. That was great.

This market is very large and has many different items for sale geared for the tourist. It was fun finding gifts and clothes and of course the friendly bartering that takes place.
