Laos Journey Part II : Hitting the Malls, Laostyle

On the main street in the center of Luang Prabang, there is an open-air market every evening where hill tribes people (ethnically, linguistically, culturally distinct from lowland Lao) can display and sell their variety of unique hand-made goods. Lamps, silks, blankets, jewelry, and traditional Lao food can be haggled for. Bring a friend who can bargain and be prepared to come home with some truly unique souvenirs.
