Which Country to Choose for Visiting Between Laos and Thailand? Which Country to Choose for Visiting Between Laos and Thailand? I have 1 month left. I’ve been to Cambodia and Vietnam. What do you recommend more – Laos or Thailand? in progress 0 Laos Rowan Hudson 3 Answers 1538 views 1 South-East Asia Answers ( 3 ) Adrian Knight 1 Reply Laos is less hectic than Thailand with many beautiful things to see & people & places to meet but so has Thailand . Chiang Mai in Thailand is amazing n quieter than Bangkok but the beaches like Krabi are amazing & you can go to many islands from there. Peyton Champlin 1 Reply Both are beautiful. Laos is calm and people are very very nice, you can visit some small villages with the local guide where people go every day to the forest to find something to eat… nature is beautiful also! But it all depends on your wish. Laos is also quite similar to North Vietnam. Stephanie Reynolds 0 Reply You have to go to Pai in North Thailand! We had the best time here in Thailand so many laid-back bars and good atmosphere and great food. Such a small village but we ended up staying more than a week there because it was so lovely. Buford Bins 0 Reply Not everyone loves Pai, but if you wanna get high and you are okay with showering once a week, I’m sure it’s fine 🙂 Stephanie Reynolds 1 Reply There are proper guesthouses so why would you shower only once a week?! And I didn’t even get high at all there just enjoyed friendly people and not being scammed and talked to by people that see you like the walking wallet. So if you didn’t like Pai just keep it down and don’t give false information like “only hippies” or “shower only once a week”. 😀 Buford Bins 0 Reply I was just not agreeing with “Everyone is in love with Pai”, it’s not for everyone. Not everyone likes self-righteous Rudolf Steiner hippies either! And the “shower once a week” is not about a lack of showers available, but more about the types of people going to Pai. Stephanie Reynolds 1 Reply You’re right not everyone is in love with this place. I just thought that it might be giving a false impression of this place saying overly negative things.
