Fodor's Expert Review Pathana Boupha
An antiques and textile shop and museum, Pathana Boupha claims to produce the costumes and ornaments for Luang Prabang's Miss New Year pageant in (an apparently prestigious endeavor). A dizzying array of goods is on display, many not for sale. Shoppers can, however, purchase textiles produced by various Laotian ethnic groups. It is worth coming here just to check out the beautiful old building and antiques collection.
