Located in northern Laos, the small town of Luang Prabang is in the heart of a mountainous region. It is one of the most popular destinations in the country has most travelers use it as the first or last stop in the country before going to/from Thailand.

You can spend your days relaxing by the river, in cafes, and heading out to the nearby Kung Si waterfalls. You’ll be able to see everything in town within a couple of days but the city has a hold on your and you’ll probably end up staying a bit longer. You won’t regret it though!

Hostel prices – You can get a hostel bed from 48,000-75,000 LAK (6-8 bed dorm). Free WiFi is common, and a few places also include free breakfast. Only a few have self-catering facilities, so if you need a kitchen be sure to check in advance if your hostel has one.

Average cost of food – You can find some reasonable budget options for under 20,000 LAK. Lunch options tend to run about 20,000-50,000 LAK and you can expect to spend about 30,000-60,000 LAK for a mid-range dinner. If you have access to a kitchen, a week’s worth of groceries should cost between 150,000-250,000 LAK, but street food is so cheap in this country you would be hard pressed to cook your own meals cheaper.  There’s plenty of riverside restaurant BBQs and the downtown night market is filled with cheap eats and all you can eat buffets.

Transportation costs – Getting around can add up quite quickly here. Taxis to the airport are about 45,000 LAK.  I would stick to tuk-tuks for getting around, or even look at renting bikes to keep costs low. A full-day bicycle rental will cost under 20,000 LAK. If you want to rent a motorbike, expect to pay around 150,000 LAK for a day rental. For intercity travel, a bus to either Vientiane or Vang Vieng will cost between 100,000-150,000 LAK.

Travel during off-season – Peak season tends to run from October through March. If you are able to land in Luang Prabang during April through September you can usually find some good prices, especially when it comes to accommodations. The rainy season runs during this time but tends to be short bursts of rain and not that bad.

Top Things to See and Do in Luang Prabang
Witness the alms ceremony – At dawn, the monks come down Sakkaline Road to collect alms of rice from both villagers and tourists. You can easily locate the route for alms giving by looking for rows of rice baskets and stools waiting for the alms-givers. It’s one of the most popular things to do in the city and hundreds of people line up for it. Sadly, while it used to be an authentic thing, it’s now a money machine for the monks and a bit of a Disneyfied attraction. 
Visit the Royal Palace – Haw Kham was formerly the royal palace. Now, it’s a museum that houses many items of historical and cultural importance about the royal family and the history of the country. It’s not a large museum but the displays and artifacts will give you a good understanding of the history of the country and the grounds are beautiful. Entry to the museum is 30,000 LAK.
Explore the Buddha Caves – These caves are located a little north of Luang Prabang and house thousands of Buddhist statues that are still used for worship today. The caves are cool to see and you get a nice ride up and down the Mekong River to get there.

Check out the night market – Set on the Sisavangvong Road, there are tons of souvenirs, food, and hawkers here. Make sure to bargain with sellers to get a fair price! It’s one of the biggest night markets in the country and a great place to pick up anything you want.
Visit Nong Kiew – This rustic village is located a few hours from the city, perched on the banks of the Ou River. It’s a great place to relax, disconnect, and slow down. You can take the bus for 40,000-50,000 LAK and spend a day or two away from it all.
Trek to the Kuang Si Falls – This huge waterfall is breathtaking. While one of the most popular attractions in the area (try to avoid the weekends when the locals crowd the area too), it was one of the most breathtaking things I saw in Laos. The water is perfect and the scenery breathtaking. The picture at the top of the page? Kuang Si! Definitely do not miss this place. Be sure to find the secret pool for a swim too! (My blog post has info on how to find it!) Admission is 20,000 LAK, and a tuk-tuk from Luang Prabang will cost 30,000-40,000 LAK.
