The city center of Luang Praban is very walkable, so there's not much need for a vehicle. But if you are go out of town, or you decide to drive in the city anyway, be prepared to develop a little road rage. Cars often drive too slow and motorbikes often drive too fast, and biking friends often chat while driving 3 or 4 abreast across one lane. So keep your eyes peeled for these kinds of drivers, as well as anyone making a turn--people in Laos rarely look both ways or yield when turning. Lastly, don't mind the spray-painted outlines of crashed motorbikes on the pavement; just think of them as a reminder to drive safely and to stay alert.
