Sleepless in Laos: The Luang Prabang Night Market

Being a night owl may not match with the lifestyle in Luang Prabang. The city wakes up early, and things tend to close down when the sky grows dark. While there is some night life in the more touristy bars and clubs, in general, Luang Prabang is a quiet and sleepy city, especially once the sun goes down. Luang Prabang is considered to be one of the most charming and peaceful cities in Southeast Asia.

Exploring Luang Prabang's Morning Market

The Luang Prabang Morning Market comes alive before the sun rises. After spending a cool, fresh morning experiencing a Lao alms-giving ceremony, head to the morning market to buy some of the freshest, healthiest, and most delicious produce in the city. You have to wake up early to experience the Morning Market, but it’s one of the coolest local experiences that you really shouldn’t miss when traveling to the city.

What to Eat and Drink in Macau

While Macau may be better known for its casinos than anything else, a visitor shouldn’t overlook the excellent cuisine that the city has to offer. Macanese cuisine is deeply steeped in the city’s history, and is influenced by both its traditional Chinese and colonial Portuguese past. Some of Macau’s best dishes can be found in its street food; some of the best food can sometimes be found in the most unassuming of local food stalls!
