Accommodation availability

I'm planning to arrive in Luang Prabang around 17 Feb. Normally when travelling I book accommodation online, at least for the first few days, but I'm concerned that LP seems to be very booked up already. Is it really packed - or is there a lot of accommodation that's not bookable online? We usually go for a double/twin room with A/C and private bathroom and pay about £10-15 (US$15-25) in Thailand/Malaysia.

Guesthouses in that budget range in LP do not usually take online bookings, and even if they do they will still usually let your room to the first person in off the street. There are many guesthouses and whilst now is the busiest time of year it certainly isn't packed. You will find a room for $15 especially around the 3 streets running down to the river near the Phousi roundabout/Tourist Info office/Post Office

Well we booked a room online for $25 for the first few days and they hadn't given it away (we did arrive in the morning though) and even though it's a bit out of the centre we've decided to stay put rather than bother looking for somewhere else. Someone turned up here just now looking for a room - they arrived yesterday and spent 2.5 hours looking for a room, and the one they got is very dirty.

Things are tight -- try to arrive early!
