Vientiane - Luang Prabang - XiangKhuang

by blacksnail

Hello, I plan to visit Luang Prabang and XianKhuang from Vientiane. Should i go to Luang Prabang first or XianKhuang. Which route is more convenient?

if i were to spend a day in Vientiane without checkin in to guest house, is there anywhere i can keep my luggage? for 12 hrs?
thank you

Well, if you're flying, then it's far easier to fly from Vientiane to Xieng Khouang than from Luang Prabang to Xieng Khouang OR from Xieng Khouang to Luang Prabang. The latter two have far less flight options.

An advantage too is that if you visit Xieng Khouang after Vientiane, it's not such a long bus journey as it is from Vientiane to/from Luang Prabang, ie. making for a 7 hour bus journey as compared to a 10-11 hour bus between VTE and LP.

I don't plan to take flight. mmm... my plan changed a little. I will be going to laos from Chiang Mai. So now i'm looking for options to go to Luang Prabang from Chiang Mai.

Travel Tips for Vientiane

Cheapest Internet in Laos (Vientiane)

by beornot2be

WOW!!! i was chocked...its even cheaper than China.
So here is the deal:
its 2000 kip/hour (0,2 usd) and its a bit far from the center.

Compared to the north of Laos, where internet can cost you up to 700 kip/min (42 000 kip/hour , 4.2 usd)
700 kip/min (Undomxai)
150 kip/min (Luang Prabang)
300 kip/min (Vang Vieng)
*33,3 kip/min (Vientiene)

So the place can be tricky to find
If you walk on the right side onThat Luang Rd. (embassy road) towards the stupa, you will see a small sign "Hi-Speed Internet 2000 kip/h" just before "KOLAO Motors"
follow the small signs pass a school, and at the "Japanese Language Center" turn left... i will miss the cheap internet.

Talking walls

by SirRichard

On most of the temples you will find these images of Buddha's life. They explain in a graphic way the life and teachings of Buddhas, so when illiterate peasants come to pray they can learn about that without reading.
It's like a king size comic, and it's useful too for those who can't read lao language (me, for instance, LOL)

dried squid

by picek

This is popular snack in South East Asian cities, also in Vieng Chan. The dried squids are sold mostly by Vietnamese women (Vientiane has large Vietnamese community and there were times in history when Vietnamese outnumbered Lao in their capital). Those are mobile workers: they travel city streets on foot and with all they need - the squids and small 'owen' which is usually made from old aluminium pot where coal burns upon which squids are fried in front of your eyes.
The squid sellers are often seen by Mekong promenade and busier streets. It's quite interesting snack, has stronger taste and when eaten one must chew very well. Prices are usually from 10 000 KIP up for middle size squid. Smallest seemed the most tasty and all must be eaten when still hot/warm to enjoy its best taste.
