Start your day in Luang Prabang at the Morning Market and join locals doing their daily shopping! Even before the sun rises, merchants start laying out colorful spreads of everything from wild mushrooms to freshwater fish on the covered ground. There’s plenty to see (and eat!) while you wind through the alleyways and narrow side streets branching out from the Main Road (Sisavangvong Road). Munch to your heart’s content on the various ready-to-eat snacks made fresh and on-the-spot!
Said to be the city’s largest weekly market, Winterfeldplatz Market has a little bit of everything. Here, you’ll find artisanal cheese, fresh cut flowers, quirky bags, one-of-a-kind kitchen tools, and more! It’s open every Wednesday and Saturday, but the area’s relaxed atmosphere is best experienced during the weekend. Rub elbows with regular locals and tourists as you try to get first dibs on a great find!
