Trip Report A few brief recommendations for Luang Prabang

Jump to last reply

We recently returned from 3 days in Luang Prabang during a longer trip to Vietnam and Cambodia. We had a particularly good experience with our guide, and wanted to post his information here. His name is Ounkham Phanthaseng, email: ounkham_[email protected] We were connected to him through our travel booker Tonkin Travel (based in Hanoi), but Ounkham also works as a freelancer all over Laos and specializes in adventure travel (although our adventures were limited to hikes and boat rides!). He is a delightful guy; smart, accommodating and made our trip particularly enjoyable. I would highly recommend him.

For those who are interested in cooking, we had a wonderful experience at the Green Bamboo Cooking school. You meet at the restaurant in town, (there were about 10 in all), board a small bus and are driven to a stunningly beautiful location a few miles outside of town. The cooking school is outdoors under a roof and afterwards you sit at a long table in the garden to consume the great meal you've just prepared. We learned a LOT - and I've already successfully recreated several of the dishes back at home. It was great fun.

Happy traveling!
