1) Laid back Luang Prabang - friendly and relaxed, very little hassle, few tourists
2) Night Market - Authentic local goods, reasonable prices, nice atmosphere
3) Kuang Si Waterfalls - Beautiful
1) Stupid monetary system - quote in $US but can't get any.
2) Only one ATM in LP - which doesn't accept VISA cards!
3) Awkward staff at airport - couldn't change money until paid departure tax, couldn't pay that until we checked in, check in opened late!
