Tuk TuksEdit This
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 Vientiane and Luang prabang, and can always be found on main streets.
Travelling in groups will always make it cheaper for each person. A trip to Pha That Luang, the most important monument in Laos, from the guesthouse area near the Mekong River, should cost about $US5. But if you travel in a group and pay a little extra, the driver will wait up to an hour for you while you look around. And that can be very handy!
