Well - I wouldn't call Luang Namtha touristy - though it is one of the more popular trekking areas. I enjoyed the trek in the jungle, and my stay in a minority village - but do check the various travel agencies, as some of them are not very good
I have never been to Muang long, but it will be less travelled than Luang Namtha - but the trekking could be a bit more expenisve there
Thank you for your help!
Muang Long is beautiful and we'll worth a visit.
Luang namtha is one of the biggest northern towns, and is a hub from which treks can be done. From LN you can access muang sing, muang long and other smaller towns where trekking can be organized.
If you have time, visit muang long before it gets overrun by the Chinese.
