It starts at 5, but form 5 pm to 8 pm it is packed!! better to go after 8 and be able to walk freely. Some shops close at 9 but most at 10!

The night market is huge. It takes up the main road through Luang Prabang. It's way more relaxed than other markets I've been to, no one hassles you if you so to look at something.. they just let you get on with it and only start selling to you when you all them to. You do need to haggle though..... More

We wandered with our children for them to buy souvenirs and gifts for friends. The children did their own bartering for a good price and had some fun. They say everything is made locally, I hope it's true. The merchandise is certainly more authentic-looking than Vientiane night market which just has stuff that looks like it was "made in China"....

Is ok to visit and buy some souvenirs. However, you can't bargain past a certain point no matter in how many vendors you try. Just for tourists.

After arriving from noisy Hanoi straight to the night market we were really amazed. Very comfortable and peaceful in asian standards.

Night Market spans a long road in central Luang Prabang. Narrow street and difficult to stop and browse given the "human traffic". Some nice quality local goods but many selling the same merchandise. Definitely worth a visit.

Great wee spot to find cheap clothes or trinkets to take home. Worth a visit and unlike bigger cities, no pushy sales people. Barter when you actually want something but be fair.. you'll get a bargain.

Loved the night markets, much of the objects for sale are the same but there is some unusual gifts if you are looking for something to take home. Walk down one of the side streets and try the street food. Tasty dumplings , papaya slalad and barbeques. we ate there most nights without a problem and of cause dont forget... More

The night market is in a nice part of town but the problem is that there's very little to buy because whilst there are lots of stalls, the majority sell the same things over and over again. A couple of stalls have original work (e.g. We saw an artist painting) but on the whole this was largely disappointing The market... More

Crowded,stall scattered along the street on both sides,selling the same made in China stuff,lots of package tourists so the prices are set accordingly... I also found the food very expensive for the country :everything is overpriced.It was near my guesthouse so I paid a visit but never came back.

Thank Pausadias
