Buying antiques in Laos
24th January, 2011
Hi all, I've been at the markets in Vientiane today and loved the look of some of the things that are being sold in the antique shops, particularly the opium teapots.
I have a couple of questions that I hope somebody can answer.
1. Any idea if these a real antiques? If they are, is it removing some of their important cultural heritage if I purchase some of these things?
2. Any trouble getting things like this out of Laos?
