To be frank, I felt fairly dissapointed when I first set foot on Luang Prabang, maybe was the rain, or the hostel, or I was just homesick, it didn't seem like a interesting place to visit. Anyhow, I was there, the most important thing to do next was to fill my stomach, long empty since the boat ride. We went to the night market, it was along a street (I don't remember the name). It was much than the night market in Chiang Mai, but it did sell some food. We got ourselves a nice barbecued fish, some barbecued ricecake and springrolls. And of course, some beer lao. They weren't too bad, but I still prefer Thai food better:) We went to stroll around the market before heading back to guesthouse. Surprisingly, the stuffs sold in the night market were quite expensive. Some of the fabrics cost more than 100USD, and they were not ready to bargain at all.
