Laos: Shopping Holiday
Southeast Asia?s most pristine environment
Shopaholics aren’t going to need to mark Laos down as the place to go in order to find a shopper’s paradise. In fact if you mentioned the word ‘mall’ out in Laos, they most likely wouldn’t have a clue what you’re referring to. Shopping in Laos tends to be at a fixed price in places like restaurants and grocery stores and for barter in places like markets. The majority of goods are bought and sold at the morning markets. For those searching for intricate fabrics and elaborate handicrafts, Vientiane is certainly a good place to go though. Shopping in Laos is mostly a specialist hobby, rather than the mass-market madness you are probably used to.
