Famous for handicrafts and portrait paintings, this night market also has everything you'd expect from a Thai market: amazing smelling foods, CDs and DVDs of varied quality and parentage, clothes and jewellery in local and western styles, antiques, electrical goods – fake and real, watches, handbags, sunglasses and designer wear, both fake and real, and beautiful silks. The main section is centred round the arcades of the Vieng Ping Night Bazaar, but it spreads out into the streets from there.

Bargaining is part of the experience – most vendors start at twice what they consider an acceptable asking price – but remember that these items are already very, very cheap, so it's hardly as if the stallholders are taking you for a proper ride on their modest incomes.
