    fruit stalls in the town and province: fruit shopping

    by picek Updated Sep 6, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Pakse seems to be the best place in Laos for buying delicious fresh fruits. If you get to the market you'll be able to buy plenty of lichee, longan, pineapple, jackfuits, sourfruit, durian, bananas, papayas for good quality and price; but the best fruit stalls are about 10 km from the town in Bolavens - in the village which is called Huay He. It should be worth going there for a short trip with motorcycle or pick-up - if you really love fruits that much!

    What to buy: lichee, pineapple, papaya

    What to pay: depends - aks for discount if you're buying a lot

    Market

    This market 's a new market located outside city center. This place you can buy so many stuffs from fresh things to metals things. I found it separated to many zones such as clothes zone,silver and accesseries zone,food zone,.... It's a good place for onestop shopping. And also,this area 's a bus terminal. I caught the bus for turning back to Chong Mek from here.

    What to buy: Silver,local textiles,CDs,VCDs,..

    The Market: Where else???

    Where else do you go to shop in Laos but to a market, pretty much every town that we went to had one. Now the Pakse one for the moment before all the tourists start to come is one of the cheaper ones. Everything was a little more in the capital city. It is such an experience to see these places so full of color and so many people. We went to a market pretty much everyday we were in this beautiful country. This market is one of the biggest we saw, with so many shops for almost anything you could need.

    What to buy: Anything from fresh fruits, vegetables, meat, to traditional clothing, scarfs, almost anything you would need could be found here.

    What to pay: It is cheap, but it depends on what you buy.

    The Market

    Holy Bananas

    As with every city in Laos there is a market, Pakse is no exception. We found things in this market to be particularily cheap especially since there are no tourists there. Be sure to practice your Lao numbers, it usually gets a smile and sometimes a laugh from the locals.

    What to buy: Anything made of silk and fruit, lots and lots of fruit. Yummy bananas!

    What to pay: I think it was about $1 for one whole bunch of bananas (as you see in the picture)
