Test your bargaining skills at Vientiane Night Market, which emerges every evening on the riverbank. As the sun sets, vendors start putting up their signature red tents on the promenade. Most of the goods--clothes, footwear, accessories for cellphones, and handbags--seem to cater to locals, but you can also find statues and paintings of Buddha, bottles of spirits preserving snakes and scorpions, and hand-crafted items clearly meant for tourists. The only thing you can’t buy from the stalls is food, but if you're feeling peckish, you can always check out the restaurants across the street.

  • Lots of families and music and food. A lot of the same products being sold booth to booth but If you check out each one you will find some good deals on some Interesting items. Also, the boardwalk right alongside it is fun and has a great view
  • Full of counterfeit stuff, most stalls pretty much selling the same thing, either clothes or electronics. Some nice artwork is sold here too.
