The Luang Prabang Night Market takes place at the corner of Settathilat and Sisavangvong Roads in the town centre. From 5pm onwards, the entire length of the street is closed off to vehicles and the hill-tribe traders emerge with their various clothes, ceramics, lamps, blankets, bed covers, handicrafts and silk scarves.

Many vendors come from the nearby Hmong Market, as it disperses right before sunset. They bring the same collection of ethnic handicrafts and trinkets that they were selling there with them.

Keep your eyes open for a handful of stalls popping up from time to time that offer something slightly different. They often quote higher prices than when buying from the shops during day time, so make sure you haggle (politely) or shop around first.

Shops and hotels lining both sides of the road are also open for business, selling handmade souvenirs, Lao coffee beans, homemade whiskys, and books. Head to the end of the market to find food stalls selling Laotian street food at affordable prices.

Popular dishes include grilled meat, Lao noodle soup, pho, meat-filled baguettes, and ready-to-eat meals. Some of the bigger stalls have long wooden tables and benches, though these seats tend to fill up fast.
