Everything for Sale on Sisavangvong Road
The streets of Luang Prabang turn into a human-powered shopping mall at night. Vendors fill Sisavangvong Road with Laotian handicrafts - particularly colorful are the textiles and metal crafts. If haggling turns you hungry, walk down one of the side streets for food stalls that are set up like buffets.

famous night market
there are a number of well known night markets in Asia but the one in Luang Prabang may be among the most lovely. Lots of handicrafts as well as food and drinks make this market a great way to spend an evening in town. While in Luang Prabang if you are looking for quiet and upscale we can highly recommend La Residence Phou Vao. An on-site restaurant gives options for those weary from a day of temples and touring.
