by Ginger MacDonald
My name is Ginger MacDonald. I am traveling to Laos next week. I live in China and am a travel writer. Could you please answer a few questions for me?
Please confirm that an "on arrival" visa can be obtained at the airport. I am flying into Vientiane.
Please confirm that there are money exchange banks or bureaus at the airport.
Please confirm that there are banks in Vietniane, Vang Vieng and Luang Prabang.
Please confirm that there are ATMS in the above cities.
Please advise if alternate currency is accepted: USD, RMB, EURO
Your answers can help future visitors. I am a solo traveler and want to help others do so safely and confidentially. I am looking forward to the trip.
