          Wedding crashers

          A travel blog entry by ablo on Dec 12, 2013

          ... and groom appeared, dressed in traditional Yao finery, and had some food with the village shamans, while the rest of us were served copious amounts of BeerLao and various buffalo based dishes! We then watched the very young bride and groom - about 14 at most - be presented to the party and the families of the couple dance in a circle on stage. The couple didn't look very happy but S said they were young and shy. About 4pm after quite a few beers we departed, leaving ...

          A night staying with a Yao family

          ... where we saw many women in traditional dress embroidering and we joined the village chief around a fire, who asked us questions about England and vice versa. We returned to the homestay for dinner – the father of the house joined us. Most of the family were fixated on the television in the corner. This village only had electricity installed four months ago – and between then and now the family we stayed with, who had very little, ...

          markets itself now as a base for treks to see genuine ethnic tribes in
          the mountains, rather than the opium farming which was the main industry
          until recently. Went in search of any trekking companies still open and
          found one down the road at Pho Lo 2 Bungalows (a nicer place in town!).
          Ate dinner here and booked on a trek for the following morning - 2 days
          including a homestay - to local ethnic tribes. ...

          Two nights in a treehouse

          A travel blog entry by ablo on Dec 09, 2013

          Day two, we all woke fairly early in the treehouse as the whole forest seemed to come alive at around 4am. Guides, who had stayed in the nearby village, zipped across at 0800 to bring us breakfast of rice and vegetables and we drank tea and coffee. Packed up our stuff and headed out on the zip by 9am. Took a couple of lines away from the treehouse and then we walked uphill for about an hour – quite a long slog! – before coming across the zip ...

          After a quick breakfast we headed to the Gibbon Experience office for a video and debrief. Video was funny – be quiet in the forest, check the zipwire for gibbons, no zipping in the dark, no candles in the treehouse – all rules we were later to find were broken, by the guides! Piled into Toyota pick ups, six in the back three in the front and drove (in the back, a very cold!) 1.5 hours to a village on ...
