Shopping in Southern Laos

  • Shopping in Pakse

    Monument Books

    This modest bookshop is your best stop for maps of Laos and its neighbours, though don't expect much detail, plus postcards and a good range of regional historical and cultural books.

  • Shopping in Pakse

    Doungdy Plaza

    This modern market sells mostly discount clothing, much of which are brand-name knock-offs, of course, but a few shops stock Lao skirts and fabrics.

  • Shopping in Pakse

    Friendship Mall

    This is the closest thing Pakse has to a shopping mall, with all the usual suspects – cosmetics stores, fashion stores, electronics stores, a cinema and even a gym. It's probably not of much interest to travellers, with the exception of possibly the Friendship Super Mart inside or the outside food court which opens every day out front.

  • Shopping in Pakse

    Friendship Super Mart

    A reasonably well-stocked convenience store inside the Friendship Mall. There is a second location diagonally across from Talat Dao Heuang.

  • Shopping in Pakse

    Friendship Minimart

    Sells all the convenience-store knick-knacks. Conveniently located right on Pakse's tourist strip.
