do we need passport with us at all times?

we have an option to leave our passport in LP guesthouse that has a safe while we will travel north for 6 days.

Do we actually need to have a passport with us at all times, or is a copy of it sufficient?

would the copy be acceptable at the accommodations to check us in (the destinations are Nong kiaw and muang ngoi)?

thank you for the advice.

My husband have never been asked for his passport in the last 7 years. Make a photocopy if you like and carry that.

NEVER carry your passport, always a photocopy unless between destinations. You would never want to lose it.
