I didn’t visit the local market in Vang Vieng, Laos the first three times I was there as a tourist. The fourth time going there, I made sure to add the morning market and the evening market to my list of things to do in Vang Vieng. It’s nice to see a typical market stall and the local people doing their grocery shopping or buying ready to eat Lao food dish for dinner.
I wanted to check out the famous Vang Vieng orange to take back to Vientiane but couldn’t find any at the evening market. One fruit seller told me the oranges she was selling are from Vang Vieng.
I then asked her about the sticker on the oranges with a Thai label and she said it was for show, to get people to buy it.
