Vientiane is great for picking up unique handicrafts and traditional accessories including hill tribe silk, home furnishings, jewelry and well-known textiles. The city’s main shopping destinations are Samsenthai and Setthathirat, around the Nam Phu Fountain area and the Morning Market, where you can find the best deals on local silks. More high-class silks are available at the Kanchana Boutique.
Night market on Fa Ngum road is another option for those who are looking for great deals on scarves, bags, clothes, and especially souvenirs. Night market is also a great chance for tourists to enjoy the night life in Vientiane. Most of the shopping destinations are not so far away and you can easily take a “tuk-tuk” tour around both for sightseeing and shopping.
