      Communal, simple backpackers joint with friendly staff. Younger crowd, I tought. Decently clean, good price considering LP is on the higher price point end. Decent WIFI and one free computer that is painfully slow as in most places in SEA. Careful with the free snake whiskey they have here. It ain't no soft drink!

      Great atmosphere and a good spot to meet people. Friendly staff and friendly travelers. Just keep in mind it's very outdoorsy and you can't be picky about the accomodation, as they are sparse.

      Day 62. Kuang Si Waterfall and do it yourself bbq

      A travel blog entry by alandbeth on Jan 02, 2015

      After recovering from New year, Al headed out on a run and got us breakfast.We then signed up for the hostel to take a load of us to the Kuang Si waterfalls which were 15k out of town. They were absolutely stunning, the water was a beautiful light blue colour and cascaded for 100metres or so before you reached the high cliff face waterfall. We …

      Day 61. New Year's Day after to much Laos Laos

      A travel blog entry by alandbeth on Jan 01, 2015

      Today as most years was a bit of a write off. As Al suffered a hangover I got us sandwiches then returned until we finally got up about 4pm. Then headed to the food market to indulge in amazing bbq chicken breast. With the hope of trying to Skype home we headed back to utopia (from the night before), unfortunately awful WiFi. So we headed back to …

      Day 60. Hogmanay

      A travel blog entry by alandbeth on Dec 31, 2014

      With a very lazy start to the day, Al went for a run and brought back fruit coffee and yoghurt. We went to try find a museum but was shut, so we then headed up the hill in the town centre which as always had a temple but also an amazing view of the city and the 2 rivers. We then chilled out before new year shena****ns. First had a drink at our …

      Day 59. Arrive in Luang Prabang

      A travel blog entry by alandbeth on Dec 30, 2014

      Another early ish start got a good breakfast. The town was filled with pastries, cakes and baguettes (French influence) so we were happy to stock up on sandwich s for the journey ahead. As ever we had been told the boat left at 8am but don't think we actually left til 9.30am. The journey was beautiful with mountains and passing villages, seeing …

We went out in the evening as a group where we waited for an hour for everyone’s meals to arrive. In this time the rain started again and so did the free beers for our waiting. Some of us then decided to walk whilst the sensible (read cowardly) ones got a tuk tuk.

      In the night we all got in to the girls bed and settled for a film.
