Book at USD 5?

by blacksnail

Hello,

I remember i bought some traveller books at the angkor wat for USD 5. are they books at similar price available in Laos? where can i find them in Vientiene

thanks.

Re: Book at USD 5?

I assume you are meaning the cheap copy books of Lonely PLanet etc.
You can get these books in Laos but they are not as popular as in Thailand or Cambodia - there were plenty at the market (near the bus station )when I was there.
Cheers

Travel Tips for Vientiane

Lao Traditional Dress

by muddybok

She is a model for one of the photoshoot out. As usual, I like to aim at anything beautiful. Also add into my traditional costume collection album.

The costume some how quite similar to those that you see in Thailand. In fact, the Indo-china as a whole is quite closely related. Be it foods, local customs, transportations, wars in the past and etc.

Economic

by yuet29

Although Laos is categorized as a third world country, it is poorer than cambodia, but the living standard are still compatible with others, which means the food are almost the same price with other countries in SE asia.

I met 2 men from China, they were looking for investment opportunity in Laos. When I met them, they were having their breakfast and told me, this kind of bread, I can get in China for only 0.5RMB but in Laos, it is sell at 2RMB.

Money Changers

by myspices

Upon arrival at Wattay Airport, you can change some of your foreign currencies into kips at the Airport. There are a couple of banks (inside the immigration and outside the immigration), rates are almost the same.

You can also change your currencies into kips at the various Money changers along the streets.

We changed some of our US dollars at the Phongsavanh Bank at the Airport so that we can use them to pay the public transport. At that time, the rate was 1usd=8.672kips

Nop'

by SumTingWong

The nop' in Laos is very important (in Thai we call it wahy). You should nop' whenever you formally meet people. It is a proper introduction. You should also nop' to show greatfulness and respect (for example you should always nop' to an older monk and always nop' when you recieve a gift). To nop' is simple. You put your hands together like a praying position under your chin - the higher above your chin you go the more respect you are giving - but you must also give respect properly. Here's the respect list:

1) highest nop' to the Buddha
2) next highest nop' to an old monk and old people deserving of it.
3) Right above the chin to your parents, older people deserving of it, and monks.
4) At chin level or right under chin means equality with you. This goes to almost everyone. Never go to low!!!

Eating Properly

by SumTingWong

Very important Lao eating rules:

1) Only eat with your RIGHT HAND.
2) Eat with a spoon, don't eat with a fork, only use the fork to put food on the spoon.
3) Wash your hands before eating.
4) if you are in a homestay, shower before eating (as much as possible).
5) Enjoy your meal!!!
