Luang Prabang is an amazing historical city in Laos, and it also happens to be an amazing city for food. You’ll find an array of incredible Lao food to experience.

Morning Market – One of the best places to get started eating Lao street food in Luang Prabang is the morning market. It’s low-key, relaxing, the vendors are incredibly friendly, and there’s so much delicious food to try. From wild grilled beehive to khao piak sen noodles, the food is so good, it’s hard to ever go anywhere else when you’re in Luang Prabang. The food highlight for me was the grilled honey comb, since it was so rare and unique. Additionally, you’ll have a blast checking out all the ingredient at the market. Here’s what I ate:

Grilled beehive – 5,000 LAK ($0.60)
Mung bean cake – 5,000 LAK ($0.60) for 2
Naem
Khao gee – 5,000 LAK ($0.60) for 3
Noodle rolls – 10,000 LAK ($1.20
Khao piak sen – 15,000 LAK ($1.80) per bowl

Phosi Market – One of the biggest markets in Luang Prabang is Phosi Market. Unfortunately there wasn’t much pre-cooked food when we went there in the middle of the day, but luckily we found some amazing food.

Sai oua – Sai oua is the northern Laos version of sausage, and it’s a life-changer. This stall served some of the best sausage, not only that I’ve had in Laos, but in the world. You’ll find sai oua all over Luang Prabang. Price – 10,000 LAK ($1.20) each

Sticky rice feast – I desperately wanted a Luang Prabang sticky rice meal for lunch, so eventually after walking around a little we found the perfect spot. She had a variety of different Lao food stews to choose from and they all look great. All the dishes were delicious, but the best Lao food of the meal for me was the bowl of aw bon (or bon) – made from taro leaves.
Total price – 40,000 LAK ($4.79)

Finally, for dinner to finish off this Luang Prabang street food tour, we headed to the evening market, located perpendicular to the night market walking street. We ordered a Mekong fish and then some very interesting Lao dishes from the curry stall. The algae salad was particularly interesting and delicious.
Fish – 80,000 LAK ($9.58), farmed fish were considerably cheaper
Dinner total – 60,000 LAK ($7.18)

It was an amazing day exploring Lao street food in Luang Prabang. Luang Prabang is a food paradise.

Thousands of Years Ago, This Was a Forest. See What Remains | Short Film Showcase

Many equate the English moors with open grassland and bogs. However, they were not always this way. Once temperate rainforests, the trees were felled and fires swept through the land. Filmmaker Burnham Arlidge envisions a future where the forests might return, teeming with life.
