Wet and Wild

A travel blog entry by leongerrits


Het heeft me te pakken: het regenseizoen. Na twee weken van non-stop plensbuien en uitgestorven stadjes ben ik in een lichte depressie verzeild geraakt. Oplossing: afleiding zoeken en naar het meest toeristische gebied van Laos reizen.

Tja, over dit plaatsje kan ik kwijt dat ik begrijp dat reizigers dit links (op de kaart …

Ooh La Laos ..

A travel blog entry by sammiehawley


Thursday 27th & Friday 28th - Spicy Laos / Luang Prabang
So ... my bus journey from Hanoi to Luang Prabang turned out to actually be a 33 hour journey. What an experience! I had one of the "back row" beds, and was lying next to a Vietnamese guy, who blatantly shaved his arms! I was only so sure, because every time we hit a bump or a corner …

Up over and around

A travel blog entry by finbarrorourke


After getting to Vientiane I had to wait for a clutch pedal for Mildred to come from Thailand so I spent a few days wandering the city. It's a nice spot, very colonial French and beautiful, but not really for me so the few days there were more than enough. After …

Culture & cookery - call me Lauren the local

A travel blog entry by laurenfaye


Currently travelling on a delightfully rocky, sharp-corner filled (however, very scenic - see photos) road through the mountains to our next destination, Vang Vieng, and thus a compulsory blog update is being written for you all.

Slowboat to another Spicy

A travel blog entry by laurenfaye

Free snake whiskey

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.
