hi there,

can someone who has recently come back from loas (prehaps 3 months or so) update me on how many atms there are?

i have been reading other posts which suggests taking us$ and Baht but am concerned i might get screwed when paying for things with these currencies.

do u think i will end up losing alot through the exchange rate from us$ - kip?

thanks peeps

there are a lot lot of ATM in Vientiane, and probably only one in Luang Prabang.
You will not losing alot through the exchange rate from us$ - kip if you do it at a right place such as
at a bank or money exchanger.

Have a nice days in Laos
