Laos and Tet travel 2018

Posted by Gt9 on 25/1/2018 at 06:54

I am thinking about going to Laos during 2018 Tet timeframe. Will there be any problems or issues travelinag in Laos at that time? My plan is to travel primarily in the Luang Prabang and Vientiane area.

Thanks for your comments.

The only difference during that time is that Luang Prabang is busy with Chinese tourists, many who drive down, as well as with visitors from Hong Kong, Malaysia and Singapore. Roads are just a bit more congested and town is bustling. I recommend booking accommodation, activities in advance, and best to hit up popular sights like Kuang Si waterfall early. And watch out for cars as they often don't realise when it's a one way road. Vientiane, there's not a noticeable difference.
