Various Lao desserts or Nam Varn (ນ້ຳຫວານ) stalls at Luang Prabang Market Fair (ຕະຫຼາດນັດ) for Lao New Year or Pi Mai Lao celebration.

The Market Fair opens at 6:00 AM to 12:00 PM and everyone in town were busy walking around looking for good deals and good food. I was a bit surprised to see the young and the old having a bowl of dessert, Nam Varn at 7:00 AM.

There were all types of Nam Varn available for as little as 3,000 KIP per bowl. I didn’t even eat breakfast yet but the weather was so warm and humid that a cold sweet bowl of Nam Varn Lod Chong would really cool me down for a few minutes.
