Visit Vang Vieng

The shopping list for Vang Vieng might not be as diverse as other destinations in Laos but visitors can surely find many exotic and interesting souvenirs for themselves rather than just some postcards to send home. In the local market located north of town, oceans of beautiful and delicate Lao textiles are on sale with reasonable prices including many different types of traditional phaa sin (sarongs), ropes and hand-woven shirts. Tourists can also find numerous handmade trays and baskets made from bamboo, grass and straw well-worth their expenses. For those who are unprepared for water sports, swimming suits, shorts, caps, hats and flip-flops can be easily found at many shops scattered throughout town.
