An experience we will never forget

Laos currency

The national currency of Laos is the Kip (LAK). While for many years, there were no ATMs, now you can easily find in big cities.
No problem to exchange American Express travelers checks at banks in Vientiane or Luang Prabang.

In 2011, $ 1 is equivalent to about 8,000 kip, and for € 1, we obtain 11 000 kips.

Although tipping is not popular in Laos, it is highly appreciated. The decision of whether to tip or not depends entirely on your satisfaction.
