We flew from Ko Samui to Bangkok and then on to Vientiane, care of Air Asia. I have to say that AA have been great all through our travels.

Arriving at the airport at Vientiane, we had to go through passport control and complete paperwork that unfortunately wasn't available on our flight. Chaos ensued with all the passengers …

What a dump of a city.....

Vientiane proved a real disappointment, grubby, faded and in need of a good injection of atmosphere. Yes there is a lot of new buildings going up, mainly with foreign investment and yes areas such as the Presidential Palace and Embassy's were well manicured and tended, but behind the facade lay dirty grubby backstreets full of inhabitants that …

Funny how a short flight can take all day

Up fairly early and after breakfast packed my bag and left it in reception. I hate waiting for flights as you have that sort of 'Homeless' feeling with no room to go back to. Went for a wander and was going to hang about in the Lin Cafe which is a rather nice stylish cafe in the 'Old Quarter' of Savannakhet. However I saw a tall guy walk up with …

Squished rice sausages

A travel blog entry by heather-matt


... sour soup, sticky rice and spicy chicken - with possibly no spice! As that's what the waiter kept repeating back. On the table behind us we watched a weird man eat sticky rice with his fists making them into huge sausages - Tramp!
We had beer Laos which was good. We then headed along the night market and Matt bought a t-shirt (no surprise).

When we got back we decided to sleep from 8:30 until morning.

... her stops was at the COPE visitor center, a free exhibit about the UXO problem in Laos and the work being done to provide prosthetics and mobility devices to UXO victims. Not surprisingly, Handicap International works closely with COPE. Phongsavath, a 19-year old UXO victim who works with both COPE and HI, was part of the tour.

    At first the location appears poor but it's a short walk to decent restaurants and bars.Also handy for laundries. Nice quiet street. Well furnished rooms and lobby. Good breakfast esp if you get the baguettes just as they arrive from the bakery. seems to be used by 'Explore' for their group tours.

    The second time I stayed here I got a single room. OK no TV no fridge but otherwise ame standard and at $15 a real steal!
