The market is an interesting experience. In contrast to the night market the morning market caters more to the community. Filled with interesting foods and ingredients for the days cooking. The alley is jammed with products, people, and treats. There are some interesting spices and...More

Desperate for some local food during your visit? This is the place to go. Already open in the early hours, the breakfast there will not disappoint you. With a diverse option of daily fresh produce, and cooked meat a necessity, you haven’t been to Luang...More

This is a local market in all its raw glory. Streets are lined with beautiful colorful spices, local vegetables and animals of many varieties. I tried many foods I had never eaten before.

Many venders, some with the same wares, but most interesting to learn about Lao culture and traditions. Bet you can’t but just one thing!

Great place to walk through to see the huge variety of food that is eaten in Laos. Everything from herbs and spices to live chickens, ducks, moles, larvae, frogs and vegetables of all kinds. Most interesting things to see.

This is a most fascinating place to come. Come early in the morning, after the alms giving ceremony worked for us, to see all the fresh produce. There are so many different vegetables and wildlife for sale. From frogs and bugs to dried fish, gourds...More

As the name says, you should go there in the morning, maybe even have breakfast there. Probably not for vegetarians. Lots of local atmosphere.

We advise visiting after 7am to avoid the Chinese tour groups who probably visit after alms giving for a more peaceful experience. There is this nice-looking Mali Coffee push cart with outdoor seating in the middle of the morning market where you can enjoy a...More
