One of the best night markets not only in Laos but in South-East Asia generally. I bought beautiful hand made goods and my husband a very useful leather over the body bag. My friend not only bought some hand-painted lamps but had them wrapped for air travel. The people were lovely and very helpful and there was no pushing for... More

Good market but a lot of the same things in every row. Yummy food. Very clean and sellers weren't pushy

I like night markets and have visited many in my travels. The Luang Prabang night market was below my expectation . I had thought a city famed for good handicrafts would have better wares for sale at the night market. The stores were selling clothes, woven cloth, bags , carvings , etc with many selling almost similar goods. There were... More

One can get local sovenirs here: artworks, wearables and rattan crafts; in addition to simple foods. An attraction for the evening.

Compared to the night market in Chiangmai, this one is small and just OK by my standards, but you'll definitely want to go at least once while in Luang Prabang. You'll find Laos textiles galore at great prices, but they're not of the quality you'll find in some of the shops and handicraft villages. If you need to bring home... More

Its a market. Its a bit different in that the focus is on locally produced goods but otherwise not much is different. Its easily accessible but can get very crowded in peak season. Bargaining is acceptable and it runs every night.

This nightmarket really caught my eye, it doesnt have the biggest variety in products but one can haggle really well with the sellers and the sandwiches come at cheap prices. Fruit Shakes are also very enjoyable.
