Vientiane Night Market is a market open air that settles every night on the banks of the Mekong River as it passes through the capital of Laos, Vientiane city.
The night market is a good place to look for souvenirs, from t-shirts to Lao linen to paintings! Like many night markets in Southeast Asia, haggling is allowed here. You should start dealing at half the price. Vendors will also tend to lower the costs if you buy more than one item.
