Dinner With The Locals

Let Tuk Tuk Safari take you out for dinner. Join us for a meal at a bustling evening food market where hordes of hungry locals pick up their takeaway dinners!

Visit the market to explore the interesting, traditional Lao food on offer. Select some delicious dishes to try (we can help you choose if you can’t decide) and enjoy your authentic feast while watching the busy market around you.

After dinner we’ll take a short walk to downtown, past some local petanque courts, to visit the well-known intersection that becomes thriving roadside dessert and drinks market at night. You can try hot soy milk, fresh juices, and other unusual local beverages such as rosella or longan drinks. There are also carts selling delicious traditional Lao sweets, many made with coconut or sticky rice, and Lao-style roti with banana and coconut milk.
