Why is the pronunciation given as "LOH proh-BAHNG"?!? Unless that's a local accent, surely "luang phabang" (where "ph" = aspirated "p" is more accurate)?
Anyone know of budget or low-mid-range hotels in Luang Prabang that have internet (wireless or wired) in the rooms?
In Vientiane, Inter Hotel has free wireless in the rooms, the cheapest of which cost $15/night.
ASEAN / Asian
ASEAN = The Association of Southeast Asian Nations. This is not a typo for "Asian". I accidentally hit the submit button before adding an edit reason with this change. -- Ryan • (talk) • 10:22, 1 June 2010 (EDT)
Accommodation listings outside of Luang Prabang
So, everyone, do you think any accommodations outside of town should be listed in this guide? If so, how far out of town? Would 30 minutes' drive be OK? For the record, I think nothing at all outside of town should be listed, period. But let's reach a consensus. Ikan Kekek 05:17, 18 April 2011 (EDT)
The text (rightly) advises tourists to Luang Prabang not to get too close to the monks at the morning alms ceremony and to strongly consider watching only from a distance - yet the photo illustrating it (before I removed it) was a close-up, setting the wrong example. 220.127.116.11 09:59, 12 May 2011 (EDT)
(The above comment is me, in an internet cafe in Chiang Mai, before I set up account)
The only references to this online appear to be either from <2006 or this article and I've never heard any reference to it on either of my visits in 2009 and 2011. The tuk tuks gathered around Utopia/Hive/Lao Lao Garden all go to the bowling alley. Am I right in assuming that it doesn't exist any more and can be removed in an update to the Drink section?

I moved the last paragraph of the "history" section to the "understand" section because it does not relate to history at all. Rbakels 09:59, 28 January 2012 (EST)
Should Arthouse Cafe be added to the list of cafes? It is number 2 on tripadvisor. I haven't visited, so I'd leave it to someone else to actually give it a little review like the other cafes. 18.104.22.168 20:23, 20 April 2012 (EDT)
