This is a local market where they buy their groceries. They also have handphone and hardware shops. If you have missed the morning market at luang prabang main street, this is a good alternative as it close later but much further from the main street.

At 5 pm a part of the Sisavangvong street is turned into a market. The vendors at the market are quite relaxed, so you can walk around looking without experiencing aggressive attempts to make you buy this and that. Lots of textiles in nice colors,...More

A very local market. Food and everyday used items found here. Not a place to shop for souvenirs. It is interesting to go through but it's the same as any other local market throughout Southeast Asia. Not worth the trip.

Phosi market is definitely worth a visit if you want to get an idea about life away from the tourist crowd. The fruit, vegetables and meat section was really interesting. I saw everything from live eels to semi-dried rats and pig trotters.

This market is just outside town. Its meant for locals and there was nothing of interest to me. In Luang Prabang a visit to the night market, morning market and a walk down Sisavangvong road is all one needs to see or buy the local...More
