The market had great and beautiful stuff, it wasn't too crowded, none of the sellers were pushy, and overall it was a great experience. Not only that, the food section of the market was amazing. Imagine the best buffet you've ever seen and put ten of them next to each other. You get a plate and can fill it up with as much food as you want all for 10,000 kip. And you can buy great meat separately! So amazing.Recommended for:

The Hmong women of the surrounding villages converge on the southern end of LPB's Sisavangvong Rd. each night to show their wares from the pavement -- an assortment of gorgeous fabric art, painting, homebrewed lao-lao whisky and assorted jewelry and trinkets -- and I'll be damned if just walking thru isn't a pleasant experience. The level of craftsmanship in the goods presented is shockingly high, and prices with a bit of haggling shockingly low. The women are unfailingly smiling and friendly, and it's a great place to contemplate a purchase or two while chatting up some of the world's most pleasant people.Recommended for:

A great thing to do before or after dinner. The market stretches past the Palace and Museum and also includes a street of very interesting food stalls where you can have a buffet of vegetarian dishes for only 10,000 kips (add a whole grilled fish or chicken for only 20,000 kips). The selection of crafts is underwhelming, but still very enjoyable.

I wish I had more time when I was at Luang Prabang and could have spent more time at the Night Market. The handicrafts sold at this market were one of the better ones compared to other night market. I would definitely have to come back again and do my shopping!

The thing to do at night in Luang Prabang. You couldn't miss it if you tried. It is a great gathering spot for all the different tourists and there is also a great food alley right by the market.

The night market is a hive of low quality craft goods that are primarily made in China. There are a few good quality stalls but you need to make sure that you are focusing on quality more than anything else. I found this process exhausting and tended to avoid the market as a result.
That being said, the night market is an enjoyable pedestrian/urban experience. The lighting, the people, and the variety of food options make it an enjoyable evening experience. They could make it even better by adding pocket park seating throughout the length of the street so that people can sit back, relax, and enjoy the atmosphere.
