After a visit to the Immigration Office for Lao Visa extension, it was time for a little shopping at Talat Sao or Morning Market in Vientiane. For this particular morning the priority was looking for Lao silk skirts and shawls. There were many shops at the market selling similar materials if not the same and finding the best bargain is the must have experience when it comes to shopping in Laos.

Of course I’m not much of a bargainer and Aunt Kian was doing all the bargaining and inspecting the materials. In the end we went home very happy to have found the Lao sinh and prabieng at the right prices.
