The famous night-market of Luang Prabang, Laos.  There are many beautiful handicrafts for sale here, but bargaining is a must to get a fair price.

In Southeast Asia, it is common for the salesperson (especially saleswomen) to flatter a foreigner by complimenting him.  I think this is an excellent strategy as it makes the foreigner happen and usually results in a good sale.  Bottom-line: everyone is happy!

A two-wheeler bridge in Luang Prabang, Laos.  There is one “lane” each for incoming and outgoing traffic (bicycles and motorcycles).  There is a separate new bridge for larger vehicles.

The remote Tay Trang border crossing between northern Lao PDR and northern Vietnam.  Many Vietnamese businessmen/businesswomen purchase fresh vegetables in Laos and sell in Vietnam.  Other hand-made products such as carpets are also “exported’ from Laos for sale in Vietnam.
