The charming town of Luang Prabang - the ancient royal capital of Laos and a UNESCO National Heritage Site, is surrounded by precipitous mountains at the junction of the Mekong and Nam Khan rivers. The town is famous for its elegant mix of traditional Laotian architecture and its distinctive French air and quaint small village atmosphere. Come dusk the main street in town - the Sisavangvong Street is closed from vehicle traffic as it becomes a ground for a night market which illuminates with a tranquil glow, notable for its romantic and magical appeal...

The night market is definitely a must cultural experience, each item bought goes directly to the sellers themselves since buying there would be helping the locals earn their living. Laos, once a forgotten land and land-locked is a country as yet untouched by the modern demands, stress and pace of life. Its beauty lies in the Lao people, centuries old traditions and heritage but now has put itself way up on the list of hot travel destinations in SEA.

Hello Abmdsudi

Good use of the available light to get bright colours. I also like the position of the saleswoman up in the corner there.



Ciao Abmdusudi
molto bella l'atmosfera che hai riprodotto attraverso la foto, la poca luce appiattisce tutti i colori, ma li rende più caldi e intensi.

Hi Abmdsudi
Belle nocturne du marché, bonne profondeur, les personnes concentrées sur leurs travail, de belles couleurs et détails que donne les tissus, très belle présentation

Hello Abmdsudi, very good picture of this interesting scene of daily life in the market, very well captured in this interesting image, with good sharpness, light, color and quality. A great job perfectly done, my congratulations, my friend. Thanks for sharing this interesting work.

Good night and happy week.
All the best from the south of Spain.
