Bike Riding in Luang Prabang

In Luang Prabang bicycles are very cheap to rent, about $1USD per day and a great way to get around the city. They can be found all along the main street through town. Renting of motorscooters was banned due to many tourist accidents.

Tuk Tuks

Edit This

Tuk tuks are either small trailers on the back of a front end of a chopped motorcycle, or even an enclosed back of a small truck. In most towns, you'll find they are motorcycles because they are cheaper to run. Hence, you can haggle your way down to a cheaper price.

Don't be afraid to haggle, especially if you know where you are going. Prices can easily be halved if you stick to your haggling style (which in Laos, is a quiet tone), and not be afraid to try the 'walk away method'. There are lots of tuk tuks around, especially in big towns like more..
