I was a little disappointed in the selection but was able to have a very reasonably priced and satisfying meal. Luang Namtha is a quiet town and the night market wasnt an exception.

If you eat quick, good and cheap (sooooooo cheap), you knocked to the good door! The market is divided in 2 parts: one for a "outdoor restaurant" where you can found table to eat warm rice, noodle,... prepared in front of you. And the market with typical Lao food. Just what we looked for :)

Open every night. The Roasted Duck is amazing as is the build your own soup. Spring Rolls were very nice and the Lao Sausages were very good.

It is not one of the great Night Markets, but it had a good range of food, clothes and household articles.

The food options were limited but we gave it a go. It was a shame to have our meal cut short by so many dogs surrounding us and trying to get our food. Food was OK.

Few tourist embellishments and real local food; maybe not much variety, but tasty and cheap. A couple of stray dogs will beg for some meat, they're friendly, do not worry.

A good market with music and large choice of food, although don't go for anything fried. Not sure how many times they are fried but more than once is too much. Usual shops but as there are less tourists it feels a bit more authentic.

Aside from the food stalls, there is really not much to the shopping experience. the food did look delicious if stall eating is what you want.

I was looking forward for it... But there is no much to choose from. Some cold stuff, a few sticks, grilled bananas, soups...

Really nice, authentic market. Not as big as others, but definetly unique. I would alsorecommend having dinner at the market as is it's really nice watching the people go by and all in all there's a nice atmosphere. Make sure to come early, as the market place closes at 22:00 sharp. I was also told that the barginning was quite... More
