I am looking for any advice on Laos please recommended places to see.
we have 10 days and are entering from Mukdahan Thailand.
We are looking for cheap digs, nice food, places to see, walking, test the local beer, a little bit off the touristy trail would be good as well.
Any suggestions would be greatly received.We have been travelling about 6 months now around SEA and love it!
thanks for your time
If you want to avoid touristy spots, definitely don't go to Vang Vieng. It's the ultimate touristy spot in Laos. Instead I suggest Vientiane and Luang Prabang. These two are much more laid back from what I've read. I'll be visiting at the end of March for a week and spending about 3-4 days in each city before flying to Bangkok. Definitely check out travelfish.org to get an idea of the cities and what you can expect to see in each place. It's been very helpful with my research. Other websites that are equally helpful are lonelyplanet and of course, this website. Best of luck and happy travels
