What to buy in Laos?

Laos is also famed for its outstanding hill tribe textiles, silks and other various handicrafts. When visit Laos, both night markets in Vientiane and especially in Luang Prabang that should not miss out. On the other sites, tourists can find and buy antiques, handicrafts, silks, arts or paintings at souvenir stores in the main tourist spots in the country. Commonly, there are still fake silvers, jewellery, stone gems and antiques. You should ask for an assistance from your local guide’s advice or let them highly recommend you a good place to buy those.

Laos Coffee
Laos is one of the best places in Southeast Asia, who grows coffee: Robusta and Arabica. Literally means “Paxong” in Lao, Lao people typically drink Robusta coffee which is sweetened with condense milk. You may want to try the authentic flavor of Robusta coffee and can be easily found at main streets not likely the ones at brand coffee lounge or shop.

Silks & Textiles
Artistically and intricately weaved silks & combined cottons can be purchased in small villages in the order to support the local communities, you get good deal and you have chances to observe the locals producing those lovely products. Alternatively, you can buy some at the morning market in Vientiane and at night market in Luang Prabang.

Silver
Hmong silver is highly recommended if you look for silver jewellery. It could be hard for you to find ethnic Hmong crafted silver items in Hmong village in the north. However, you can find plenty of Hmong silver jewellery at the morning market in Vientiane and some stalls at daily night market in Luang Prabang.
