Emergency phone numbers in Laos

Postby sas32 » Sun Jul 26, 2015 12:11 pm

Hi all

I thought I want to share with you, the emergency phone numbers in Laos. They can sometimes come in handy:

Police: 191
Ambulance: 195
Fire: 190

This is the Lao word for emergency: ສຸກເສີນ. I have no idea how to pronounce it :)

I want to add the phone number for the Tourist Police, which is 192. This is the number you want to use, if you don't speak Lao, and want an English speaking police officer on the line. I suppose this is the case for 99% of us big-nosed falangs ;)

Oh yeah, I totally forgot about the Tourist Police :)

Just for completion, here are the phone numbers for some of the larger hospitals:

Alliance International Medical Centre (Rte Luang Prabang, Vientiane, Laos): Tel: +856 21 513 095

Or if you speak French there is the clinic called Simuang, near the French Embassy (near Rue Setthathilath): Tel: +856 21 214 150
