The night market runs 4-10pm every night in front of the palace and is a great place to spend the evening/s in Luang Prabang.
Not only does it sell a wide range of souvenirs, handicrafts and potiential gifts to take home, there’s food stalls selling steamed coconut cakes….
chocolate and banana crepes…….
and a whole alley (down near the post office/baguette and fruit shake stalls) of buffets selling a plate of food for about $2 AUS.
Some stalls will heat your food in a pan. Go here early when it’s not so busy and the food is freshly cooked.
