Title: Mekong riverside night market in Vientiane, Laos
Post by Admin Saovaluck on 29th Dec, 2017 at 2:12am
Preparations in the late afternoon for the Mekong riverside night market in Vientiane, Laos.

The outdoor night market is located along the Mekong river, and opens daily from late afternoon to well into the night so tourists can find something to eat in many choices of restaurants in the area, and then maybe do a bit of shopping or look at some of the souvenirs that Laos has to offer.

Is this a weekend market? Or a seasonal market? It appears to be
very clean and orderly. Approximately how many vendors are there?
Do they musicians or any other entertainers?

You didn't read my post. "Opens daily" means the market is open seven days a week.

I don't know how many vendors there are, but there seem to be quite a lot, and doubles during the festival season in the Boat Racing Festival and Boun That Luang.

It's a market. It's not really an entertainment place but a place to buy goods.

They have people doing their aerobic exercises nearby, and some restaurants and bars in the area have live music and entertainment.

  My fault; I did NOT carefully read your post, sorry. The market seems
quite interesting, are there small food carts or ice-cream stalls?

No apologies necessary, I just wanted to let you know in a friendly tone that your question has been answered in my first post.

There are small food carts and ice-cream stalls because people can get hungry or thirsty.

You can see in some of the photos that they sell pizzas so there's simple western foods available too.

  Your friendly tone is appreciated. I usually read in a careful manner, so
I was chagrined by my own inattentiveness.
I noticed the Japanese Samurai Pizza shop; Do Lao people eat Pizza with unusual ingredients; e.g. squid, corn, squirrel, etc.? Have eaten these and many other strange toppings myself!

Squid and squirrel are strange toppings.

I rarely eat pizzas so I am not sure if they sell them with unusual toppings.

Squid is universal in Japan. Squirrel limited to Ozark Mountains, U.S.A.
Actually Corn is exotic topping to Americans. I assume the market has
vendors who sell fresh fruit drinks, etc.

Also I noticed very few men smoking cigarettes. Do many Laotian men smoke cigarettes?

I haven't seen many Laotian men smoke cigarettes these days.

Many people used to smoke but they've quit for good.

I like the vibe this place gives off, it's sorta like a peaceful feeling looking at these pictures. And i forgot people still smoke, i thought vaping was the new trending these days  :D
