Is the cost of living in Laos high?

Answer this Question

We asked people about the cost of living in Laos, they wrote...

"The cost of living in Laos is generally quite low compared to other countries in the region. The capital city of Vientiane is the most expensive place to live in Laos, with prices for goods and services being higher than in other parts of the country. Rent for a nice 1 bedroom apartment in Vientiane is around $400 USD per month, while a nice 2 bedroom apartment can cost up to $600 USD per month. Eating dinner at a moderately priced restaurant in Vientiane can cost around $10 USD per person," commented one expat who made the move to Laos.
