Its a nice market.

There is quite a bit of variety & it definitely has a Laos influence in its crafts and clothing. It is pretty easy to spend a bit of time wandering around, as the place has a... read more

This market seems to go on forever at one end of the Main Street. The vendors are not aggressive and are willing to bargain. Nice scarves and jewelry.

We were in Luang Prabang 3 nights and spent 3 nights at the Night Market. I think that says it all. Something for everyone. Higher end restaurants and $2 buffets and everything in between. So many vendors and not pushy. Plus you can bargain. Loved it!

The night market is literally set up in a long street that is blocked off in the evenings, in the middle of the city, so it's a real "street market." If you've been to any of these Asian night markets, you probably already know that it can get pretty repetitive. The vendors stock up on generally the same 10 or... More

There is quite a bit of variety & it definitely has a Laos influence in its crafts and clothing. It is pretty easy to spend a bit of time wandering around, as the place has a really good feel & look to it. Plenty of food options too.

It is only the local craftware that makes it differ in any way from a typically Asian tourist market. The local craftware can be both curious and bizarre but in the case of the textiles just amazing for quality and super colours. As it is held in the middle of the main street you cannot escape it, but it was... More

A large outdoor market great for souvenirs and food. It was one of the nice markets I've seen and is located in the center of town so its easy to find.

It's not as big as Chiang Mai night market but you can still find uniquely Lao merchandise here. Otherwise it's the same type of night market you can find in ASEAN countries.

Apart from the local crafts this is your typical Asian tourist market. Having said that, it is of course worth a visit for the experience. The street food eating places are on a side street at the beginning and offer all Laos cuisine in its raw form. Although we didn't try it the dishes looked very tasty and of course... More

Seen one night market seen them all tbh. Not a lot to offer for clothing you can't buy elsewhere. The food alley is worth the excursion though. Get the 15000 kip dinner plate and enjoy satiety.
