Plain Of Jars

A travel blog entry by lj.oz

Day 597 Besides some unique traditional villages the biggest thing to see here is the Plain Of Jars. We didn't waste any time getting our sight seeing on. After a good nights sleep in probably the best bed we have slept on in Asia, we slept off the 27 hour journey that got us to Phonsavan. We opted to not go with a tour but rent a moto and go it …

We went in search of urns & got bombs instead.

We left Luang Prabang on a local bus as i don't trust the minivan companies. They have a bad reputation for accidents and i knew the road to Phonsavan was going to be like riding a rollercoaster. We set off after every conceivable item was loaded under the bus as the locals appear to use the buses as a postal service. We saw people pull up with bag …

Bom-bies

Laos is the most heavily bombed country in the world! The US dropped more bombs here than they did on Germany and Japan during the whole 2nd world war. Two million tons have fallen. That works out to a ton per inhabitant at the time. Over 9 years of bombing which averaged 1 attack every 8 minutes – for 9 YEARS! This story is even more tragic …

Door ons verblijf in Kong Keo's hostel, zijn wij er van overtuigd dat Phonsavan een aparte entry verdient. Wij gingen naar Phonsavan, omdat we heel graag de Plain of Jars wilden zien. Op deze vlakte liggen duizenden stenen kruiken, waarvan niemand weet wie ze gemaakt hebben en waarom of hoe ze op de vlaktes zijn gekomen. De lokale bevolking heeft …

... and another southern region of Laos than Germany and Japan combined during World War Two. I read somewhere that at one point during the Secret War it averaged out to a full plane of bombs being dropped every 8 minutes. This isn't quite as surprising after seeing how many bomb shells are used to decorate all of the restaurants and guesthouses in the area. The city itself, though it has a beautiful backdrop, lacks the character and style that I've been able to ...

Nice and quiet. near center of town and close to the nightly entertainment. The owner Mr Kong is a friendly, really nice guy. He also organizes trips to the jar sights.

Interesting chats & big rats!

Mr Kong Keo alone is reason to stay at the guesthouse, what a character! It's a decent place with a rat problem so ask for one of the concrete bungalows instead of the wooden ones. There's a nice decking area where you're guaranteed to have some interesting conversations with Mr K. He runs tours but if you go to Lao Falang restaurant 2 minutes away, which is run by Mr K's sister, you will find MrK's brother Weo and we would say to go with him!

Interesting place filled with bombs and bugs. Really friendly staff. We enjoyed chatting the evenings away over fires in old cluster bomb casings. Super relaxed staff make you feel at home.

Also run some amazing tours. Make sure you take the one with the waterfall - you won't forget it!
