New Years in Luang Prabang vs. Chiang Mai
26th February, 2009
I will be heading to Thailand and Laos in April. I have the flexibility to be either in Chiang Mai or Luang Prabang for New Year festivities. I heard that both are great time but can anyone provide me with more details? how are the celebrations different in each town, etc.

My vote would go for Luang Prabang -- mainly because the holiday goes for longer ;-) but seriously, if you can choose between the two and are looking for a mix of fun and "cultural" activities, then LP is the better bet in my opinion.
We'll actually be publishing a bunch of new Year preparatory stuff in the coming weeks, so check back in a bit for more info.

Yep, Somtam, I'd also like to read the material before I head off next Tuesday (eventually) to LP for New Year.
