What's in the Luang Prabang Night Food Market

It is not surprising to hear a traveller whining about prices in Luang Prabang, or Laos, generally; At least compared to its neighbors, Vietnam and Thailand, Laos is comparably (and surprisingly) more expensive.

When it comes to food, there is almost a place to eat at every corner, but for dinner, not to be missed, is the night food market.

The night food market is a narrow strip beside the tourism office, and extends up to the street for the day market.

Upon entry from the tourism area, it will be the sweets, first. We've tried several sweets during our stay in Luang Prabang and I would say there's nothing that did not pacify my tastebud.

From there, there will be a few stalls selling presents for home, such as preserved jerky met, spreads in jars, coffee and tea, etc.

Then, opposite them are the vendors of crispy fried pork. There's 2 of them selling, one of them sells as well very early at the day market, and just a proof of how good hers is, she finishes in just 1 hour because hers is just so crispy and apparently a favorite at that fresh time.

Meantime, just beside the cripsy pork vendor is a lady who'm you'd always spot spot, like every night of the day, playing candy crush. She sells some pastries, and one time, i bought a slice of cake, with a candle, for just 3,000kip (well another traveller was celebrating her birthday, and thought it was a good surprise).

Further, will be the soup and salad guys.

Then, the Meat guys, and then the bufffet people.
