... camp by the Pathet Lao. There’s nothing like seeing the real stuff to help me put together what I watched on TV when we were all so much longer. Secret wars? I know so little even though I’ve heard so much, you know?

... guys/gals from the hostel for 10,000kip. We went to Utopia which is a cool little bar, you sit on the floor on cushions and it's got chilled lighting and a nice atmosphere.

We arrived in our last stop in Laos, Luang Prabang, and what a great place to finish off this leg of the trip. The old town has been designated a world heritage site for its beautiful and numerous French colonial architectural gems and for its many Wats or Buddhist temples. The best way ...
... and the speed boat tickets at the office which wasn't open. We had a wander around the town which has been built around travellers, there are loads of food stalls and 'shops' to buy alcohol, cigarettes and toiletries etc. We heard some loud music so followed it to find the party. It was coming from a marquee at the top of the hill at the Local Poverty Fund venue and was filled with locals eating, drinking and dancing. We didn't feel ...
