... was interesting. Some much needed time by the pool to cool off perked everyone up and then the girls suggested we head back into town to climb the 100m hill in the centre of town called Mount Phou Si. The hill is a local religious site and houses dozens of Buddhist shrines.

We took a Tuk Tuk to the middle of nowhere and would you believe it was an actual bowling alley. I was expecting it to be a dirt alley with a few pins but it was in fact pretty packed out. We played a couple of games and then headed back to the hotel because we had another early morning to wake up so we could head to Vang ...
