There’s plenty of Tuk Tuk around the corner of Luang Prabang Night Market for those that bought plenty or don’t feel like walking back to the hotel or guest house after a few drinks after dinner. I took a Tuk Tuk a few times since I was traveling alone and my safety was the number one priority. I was told of a few purse snatching stories, usually targeted at a “lone traveler” and was advised not to walk back to a guest house late at night alone on certain streets.
Why take a risk when it’s only 5,000 for a Tuk Tuk ride back to my guest house late at night? I usually paid double for ride in town, giving extra tip because I know it’s not easy for them to make a living these days with fierce competitions and strict rules they have to follow.
