Luang Prabang- pre booked tour or DIY when I get there?

Posted by metropical on 23/6/2008 at 11:28

I can either book a tour with flights and hotels or just book the flights and hotels myself and DIY the rest when I get there. I have no Lao language ability.
Would I be better off pre-booking or would I be successful DIY?

Unless you are coming at a peak time when I would suggest pre booking accommodation, I would do it myself.

I agree with Rufus.

mope, I'll be there in mid July. Can't imagine that's peak.
So then I could book all the "local" tours there, easily?
And perhaps save a few $.?

one tour op has gotten back to me and can do the tour I'd like for the $ I'd like to spend. The only bug is I'd like to make Elephant Park on the 4th day and depart of the 5th day. They only want to book a 4 day tour in their tour order.
If I leave them on the 3rd day, went to EP on the 4th day, how would I fare either self guided or finding a local for the 5th day and cover the National Museum and Central Market?

Jeez how many sites do you cross post on? The posters and the respondents are usually the same.

perhaps, but some are more active then others and my time is running short.
