... bars where you are offered free shots of “lao lao” (traditional Laos whiskey). This activity started again a few months ago but it was prohibited for some time because many foreigners got drunk and drowned in the river. Even though we find tubing itself quite lame we would probably go to Vang Vieng and do it if we had more time. Due to the lack of time we decided to visit the Plain of Jars. Plain of Jars is represented by a group of imposing stone vessels that dot ...
