    Anyone found the new Harry Potter book in English for sale anywhere in Laos? We're in Luang Prabang and will be in Vang Viang and Vientiane over the next week.

    Thanks!

    Hello
    Have just arrived in Laos and it is certainly for sale in Vientiane. Not too far from the museum there is a very new looking bookstore with a whole heap of English language books in stock.
    You can't miss it as it's the one with the giant Harry Potter display in the window.

    !!

    Thanks! We're heading to Vientiane in a few days, so will pick it up then.

    We picked it up yesterday, still plenty of copies left. Expensive though, $36!

    Posted from within Vietnam.

    Ouch!

    Saigon was clearly the place to be - 100,000 VND ($6) for a good photocopy the day it was released.

    Does that mean Laos is free of the kids hawking books as you try to eat?
