Roaming or Local SIM Card in Laos?

Hi there,
I am planning to visit Laos in October. I am super excited and starting to prepare everything to have the time of my life.
I was wondering if it is best in Laos to use roaming service, or is it easy to buy a local SIM Card even as a traveler?
What is the best mobile network? How much is a SIM + data package?

Hi, I would recommend a local SIM Card. Roaming service is more expensive and maybe unstable. Try Lao Telecom or Unitel.

Laos has a surprisingly good mobile service - they had 4G before Thailand.

local SIMs are very easy to get hold of. I would recommend going to the Laotel HQ in Vientiane if that is your firs port of call. You cn use other outlets. They also have an offiv=ce in Savannakhet.

Te staff will sort you out with SIM set up in English and Data package.
