Muang Pakbeng Travel Guide: 13 reviews and 39 photos


Pakbeng is a rustic town-village on the way from Huay Xai to Luang Prabang. It is a sweet little market town with mostly wooden houses along a steep hillside.
We arrived in the town late so that we only had time to look for a guest house and having dinner before we fell into bed! But the next day I got up early so I had time to walk around the town before the boat left for Luang Prabang.

Market life

This market was situated near the shore where the boats arrive and leave. You will pass this road ont he way looking for a GH.

Lao kids

On the way exploring the town there were kids everywhere, some begging for money and others on their way to school.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:nice people, typical Lao town
  • Cons:some GH are really bad
  • In a nutshell:Nice to stay for a night
