Khinak Market, 4,000 Islands, southern Laos

In the far south of Laos at the Mekong river you can find a town named Ban Khinak. Khinak has a relatively large market. In this video you can get an impression of a traditional Lao market. Don Som Riverside Guesthouse (opposite the market on Don Som island) has a Lao Cooking Class and part of this is a visit to this market to buy ingredients and learn more about Lao food.
