Luang Prabang
When shopping in Luang Prabang, look for the handmade artisanal crafts that are unique creations of the tribes who still inhabit Laos. Storefronts along the streets and alleyways of the peninsula display colorful weavings, intricate wood carvings, and a wide range of silver goods. In the evening, part of Sisavangvong Road closes and becomes a busy night market. Under a canopy of tents, you can rummage through the mixture of high quality and low quality items displayed in the narrow lanes. As Luang Prabang grows wealthier, high-end boutiques are emerging at upscale hotels and in a few other places around town; they tend to sell ultra-luxe versions of traditional Lao crafts and textiles.
