Re: Best way to learn Lao for the absolute beginner?

Just want to add a little of my own knowledge to this thread :-) One of my friends is married to a lady from Chiang Mai in Northern Thailand.

Re: Benzodiazepines in Laos without prescription?

I had no idea it was illegal to carry around this medication. I'll get a prescription from my home country then, to stay on the safe side. Thanks for the information - you might just have saved me from a lot of trouble :|

Benzodiazepines in Laos without prescription?

Can foreigners own land in Laos?

Re: Exchange to kip before going?

Some branches of Bangkok Bank in Thailand will in fact exchange Kip to Thai baht, however I'm not sure this is advertised anywhere :roll: The notes must be 10.000 or more, and you should not expect to get the best exchange rate. Myself, I exchanged 500,000 Kip for around 1,750 Thb, which is acceptab...

Re: Do's and Don'ts in Laos?

Lao people are generally very friendly and forgiving, and don't expect foreigners to understand their culture and religion. So don't get too hung up on learning a long list of do's and don'ts ;) However some absolute no-no's are : - wearing shoes inside temples. Always park your shoes outside like e...
