Value of the US Dollar in Laos
23rd May, 2010 at 12:33pm
 
1 US dollar can only be exchanged for about 8,200 Lao kips in the late part of May, 2010.

It's falling down and down. In recent years we were used to seeing 1 US dollar for 10,000 kips.

You are absolutely right.  The currency isn't the same as it once was.  The US continues to borrow money they don't have.  I think when it comes down to if if a dollar falls below 50 cents or under vs a Euro, US will most likely be an instigator of world wars. This is the only way for them to wipe out their debts by being a savior to various countries.  Of course that is my opinion and view seeing all the things the US has involved themselves with. Let's hope things don't come to that.  Smiley

8,000 kips is about US $1.

The following page has the exchange rates.

Exchange rates can be good or bad for tourists and businesses.

It doesn't have any effect on the locals.

I would't say it's falling down, I would say it's great! When you get less Lao Kip for a Dollar it means Lao Kip is getting stronger and so the economy in Laos. As a Lao person I'll pray for less and less Lao Kip per a Dollar, although it's not ideal for Lao people who live abroad who's coming back to Lao for a visit or something like that...sorry!
