    I stayed 2 night at Villa Maly and it was totally amazing. The room was spacious and nicely decorated with rug and artifacts. The service was excellent and the breakfast was really nice. A little tip check out the hotel website as i got a last minute deal there.

    Unique Quality: The pool area was stunning and private you can lay out and do sun bathing peacefully. The Laotian massage was really relaxing give it a try.

If I remember it right there are buses from LP to Luang Namtha (10hrs). Then another bus to Huay Xai(mornings I think - 4 hrs). You may have to overnight in Luang Namtha I think.

Another way is to take the slow boat (or the eardrum piercing fast boat) on the Mekong River from LP to Huay Xai. The slow boat will overnight in Pakbeng.

From Huay Xai take a boat crossing to Chiang Kong (the border town of Chiang Rai) then another 3 hrs by bus/van to Chiang Mai

I would take the slow boat, we did the reverse in 2006 and it was a highlight of our trip. From the Thai border, Chiang Khong its a about a 2-3 hour bus ride.

Hi there,

If you can afford it then i would suggest you go by plane. we done the reverse journey in january by bus and it was a nightmare. Got the bus from the border in Laos and were told it would take 9hours to get to Luang Prabang....13hours later we were still on the bus! it was the most uncomfortable bus journey weve ever done. Heard mixed reports about the slow boat, some say its really good but others have said once the novelty wears of then its pretty boring...but i would reckon alot more comfortable than bus. I wouldnt recommend the speed boat as it is pretty dangerous, especially when the river level is low, there has been quite a few accidents in the past. The cheapest way to do it is probably by bus but it certainly is not the easiest.

Hope this info helps, enjoy your trip.

Travel Tips for Luang Prabang

Pi Mai - best time to go!

by pinoygypsy

Luang Prabang celebrates their new year for 3 days around mid-April with lots of water and powder splashing, parades, parties, a beauty pageant and of course, drinking Beer Lao! Everyone's in party mode! The people, the beer, the whole feeling of the place -- very laid back, chilled out and relax!

Waterfall and nice picnic place

by MJL

This is absolutely one of the best place in Luang Prabang, Khousang waterfall. You can swimm in those ponds. If you want use your legs, so climb up to the waterfall. You can then walk to the other side of waterfal.

10 things what you as a tourist should know

by xuessium

1. Temples are beautiful and interesting but most important of all, they're holy places. Please visit, but dress appropriately, covering shoulders, knees and everything in between. Whether in a temple or on the streets, ladies wearing long skirt will find the gesture much appreciated.

2. In Buddhist cultures, the head is high and the feet are low. Use your feet only for walking and refrain from using them to point at someone. Putting your feet up on a stool is thus rude, so is stepping over someone seated on the floor.

3. Please don't use camera flash to take pictures of folks giving alms or monks receiving them. You're disturbing people practicing their faith.

4. Please be thoughtful about your generosity. Giving away candy or money discourages initiative, rots teeth and encourage begging. Medical supplies are easily misused and should be donated to the Red Cross. Books and educational supplies are best donated directly to schools.

5. Kissing, holding hands and other displays of affection between a couple should be done in private.

6. Don't lose your temper as everybody loses "face". Stay calm, don't raise your voice and things can be worked out.

7. The Lao people are modest. Nude bathing at waterfalls, in the river or while rafting is never appropriate. Lao women wear a T-shirt and shorts covering from mid-thigh to shoulders; for men, shorts are fine.

8. Don't carry away Laotian heritage. Don't buy old objects as souvenirs as they were probably stolen from unprotected temples or historic sites. Support talented and hardworking local artisans by purchasing new and beautiful weavings, silverwork and handicrafts.

9. Please preserve and observe Laotian traditions. Be sensitive.

10. Culture isn't understood in a single day. Give yourself time to accept differences and understand why the differences existed. Don't try to impose your way and believes on others especially if the culture is older than yours. The world is diverse and that is what make things so exciting.

Betcha can't eat just one

by richiecdisc

By far our favorite snack in Luang Prabang was the gooey coconut pancakes called khao nom ba ping. Made of coconut and rice, they were more like dumplings in consistency. Even better was watching the girls make them. It was ingenious though time consuming. They were so popular the poor things could not keep up with demand. We felt they should have raised their prices as you got about five of them for 2000 Kip (about twenty-five cents). They were worth a lot more but they were quite happy pumping them out for their waiting patrons.

BeerLao Drinking

by muddybok

I am no kidding when I put this tip in this category. The big bottle BeerLao will cost between 7.000Kips - 10.000Kips (depending where you drink from) and it's smooth to you throat and also to you pocket.

One thing for sure is it cost only 1/3 of Malaysia bottled beers and taste better than Tiger Beer**.

Don't understand why Kiasu loves Tiger Beer?
