TravelPod Member ReviewsVilla Champa Luang Prabang
We arrived at Villa Champa not having booked it after a long two day slow boat from Thailand. We got a really decent price for what it was one of the best rooms we had in our 2 month trip. After a few days roughing it up a bit, it felt very luxurious. The young man at reception was friendly and sweet and the nice big shower felt amazing; no wet bathrooms, aleluia!
The location is great, close to everything in the centre of town and we even got a nice balcony which we should have used more. Breakfast was not included but there are some great places in Luang Prabang (not that cheap though!).
Would recommend Villa Champa to any flashpackers arriving in Luang Prabang!

It was delicious. Then we decided to get dessert. I really fancied pancakes but there were none. In other towns every other stand made them. So we went over to the stands they had. Dave got a drink which turned out to be sweetcorn! It was disgusting and was swiftly discarded! Craig got ...
Lie in compared to the last few days and made it to breakfast just before it finished at 9.30am. Buffet with cheese and tuna sandwich. Freshly made omelette. Relaxed in the sun by the pool as it was cleaned after last nights storm. Walked to OPT and shuttle out to the LCC-lovely to see everyone they seemed pleased to see us ...
... to marry within each clan so villagers travel to other villages to meet new prospective partners. They play a game called pov pob which involves throwing a cloth ball one handed to each other between men and women. The dropping of the ball requires a forfeit, either a song or the removal of some symbol from their clothing. Somehow this all leads to helping finding new nuptial partners.
The ball game. It's everywhere and means everything to everyone somewhere down the ...
... their wares and, of course, those who insist on driving their motorbikes down the crowded aisles. But, again, it's pretty "civilized" by Asian market standards.
Another thing that's amazing in Laos is that there never seems to be a problem getting change, even if you give someone a 100,000 kip bill (about $15 CDN) for a 2,000 kip purchase. That's a first for any developing country I've been to.
Laos, like Thailand, is renowned for ...
... drums very slowly and the families were huddled around the body (we couldn't see it) they were chanting and crying. We wanted to avoid it but the village people said we could go in and we didn't want offend so we looked then quietly left. It's very interesting how different cultures mourn, very different to funerals we've been to in England. We then headed on to the waterfall and basically WOW! The water was Aqua blue, it looked like the whole place had been ...
