Europeans with dreadlocks and tattoos sipping drinks with cool names. The essence of hipster/backpacker/travellers making their way across south east asia, the place was difficult to find, in the middle of what seems like a neighborhood, but is a fun place to lounge around and...More

Utopia can be a bit hard to find, but once you are there it opens up to a wide and comfortable hangout, frequented by backpackers. The food was good and the price reasonable.

An awesome spot to go for a drink at night. Filled with backpackers so an easy way to meet people or even chill by yourself if that’s your thing (very spacious!). Yoga classes here are super affordable and a great start to the day! Happy...More

This place is so so cool, must check it out when in Luang Prabang! Decent food, although avoid the spring rolls if you're looking for the usual deep fried type! Great in the day and the night

I don’t work there. I am travelling too... however it’s every morning at 7:30am. Arrive earlier though to ensure you get a space. Enjoy

Come and enjoy relaxing views overlooking the river. We have tropical gardens, river view yoga deck, tiki huts, beach volleyball courts, relaxing thai cushions, sofas, and bar stools. This is a place to come and relax. Enjoy food, drinks, and meet interesting people. Utopia is Zen by Day, Groovy by Night. Every evening we are by far the busiest place in the city. Utopia is a very special and unique place, and our typical customers will come back every day!! Don't wait until your last day to find Utopia.
