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 …

... We walked with them towards the Jar Site 1 and then we had to split because the baby needed to poop :)

We made the recommended circle around Site 1 and were truly impressed by the landscape that was surrounding us. Everything was so green which automatically reminded me of New Zealand. What concerns the history of jars we managed to gather the below mentioned information.

The civilizations that created the jars and the Phuan Kingdom once thrived in jarīs locations ...

The most bombed country in the world.

... shell now it sits on the side of hill, ugly and a reminder of what went on here.

The next two jar sites were a similar affair. Only walk between the white markers. The last in particular was impressive due to the sheer number of these stone jars that are strewn about the landscape. Literally hundreds of them dotted about all over. If they are old burial chambers then they must have been placed here over some considerable time as it is quite a sized grave yard. All ...

... you find yourself on the wrong side of the red and white markers that tell you where it is safe to walk. The white side means the surface and sub surface has been cleared of mines, the red side means the surface only has been cleared. Not a big deal you might think, until you read that one hill alone I was visiting had 127 mines removed and it still hasn’t been cleared fully. Heeby jeebies. Weirdly sometimes it seems that maybe a marker has been put ...

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!
