Indochine Market

Junk and gems

More on Mukdahan

If you’re in desperate need of a plastic bonsai tree, a sock with Michael Jackson’s face on it, a Thai-speaking calculator, a six-foot-tall plastic thermometer or a wholesale supply of Vietnamese spring roll wrappers, then the Indochine Market is your place.

Travelfish says:

The market is mostly filled with junk, but you can score quality Lao coffee and tea along with handmade baskets, Lao silk, folk instruments, old military uniforms and dragon-headed walking canes. Loads of Asian-made cookware can be found in the many shops that line the roads across from the market for half of what you’d pay in Bangkok.

Even if you’re not a shopper, the market and its surrounds help to create a very colourful scene amid the larger riverfront area. The market proper is located directly beneath a large portion of the riverfront promenade and can be accessed by several entrances. It’s open daily from early morning until around 16:00.
