"Bring cash!" Luang Prabang Favorite Tip by oerkenbo
Luang Prabang General: 58 reviews and 67 photos
Favorite thing: Options for changing money are few in LP. There's a branch of the Banque Commerce Exterieure and also a Lao Development Bank on Sisangvangvong that'll take US cash and give you Lao Kip.
The rates for cash are reasonable at both places. Travellers cheques: 3% commission and tons of red tape.
The Banque Commerce Exterieure has a cash machine (only one I saw in town) but it only takes MC and NOT VISA. Bring cash!
