Shopping

Postby missBackpacker » Sun Jun 08, 2014 9:40 pm

One of the things I really like about Bangkok, is all the modern air-conditioned shopping malls spread all over the city. So I was wondering what it's like in Vientiane when it comes to shopping malls and shopping in general?

The shopping malls have not really arrived in Vientiane yet. Besides from a five storey mall called Talat Sao it's mostly street markets where you do your shopping. Two of the better shopping streets are Samsenthai and Setthathirat. You may also want to check out the Vangthong evening market (mostly food), or the Phimpone market which sells all kinds of Western goods.

As you see there are plenty of options :thumbup:
Best always!

In response to the mentioning of Talat Sao in this thread, here we are looking right into the mall/market:

It gives a better understanding of what a mall may look like in Vientiane. At least from the outside ;)

Google Maps is just awesome :)
