Hesitating for 2 or 3 full days

Hello,

I am arriving in Luang Prabang the 19 th November. Now I am hesitating to leave the 22 nd or 23 rd.

My aim is to see things people come here for : The cave (and river excursion) the town itself, the waterfalls and .......?

I am not interested in an Elephant camp (most not treat animals too well,), but would not like to skip something that would absolutely to be missed. We travel around, coming from Thailand, and going to Vientiane and Nong Kai after that

2 days maybe a bit rushed, 3 full days will be better. Here is a guide: https:/…luang_prabang

How long are you planning for Vientianne? You mean Nong Khiaw in Thailand?

Yes we go to there after Laos (is also kind of visa run, we choose Laos for).

We wanted to stay in Maison Dalabua, but is sold out on our date. SO we are also looking for something similar, but not over expensive.

My idea was to do the waterfalls one day, and the other day the buddah cave, and having time still the arrival day to visit the city and in the evening.

You could try The Sanctuary that's about the same price, a bit further out but not too far.

I did go to Nong Khia last trip, did not find much there.

Are you flying to Vientianne?

Of you have the time, I would spend three full days in Luang Prabang. With the Old Town, the waterfall and cave and the surrounding area you have no problem to keep yourself busy. And you find tiome to relax a bit to enjoy the atmosphere there (which I really like).

Or Jasmine Luangprabang Hotel.

It's a relaxing place, you could spend some time not doing that much, eating, massage, strolling around, drinks by the river, cafes etc.

I do not search much in Nong Kai. My friend is just living there, he take me to the Lotus lake and some things out of town. I also know that in Vientiane there is not much to see, so I just have one day there to at least have an impression. I check out the hotels , thank you.
