Nach ziemlich genau 24 Stunden auf den Füssen sind wir endlich in Vientiane, der Hauptstadt von Laos, angekommen. So sind wir auch nach dem ersten laotischen Essen direkt hundemüde ins Bett gefallen...
Am nächsten Tag sah die Welt schon ganz anders aus und wir machten uns auf die Stadt zu entdecken. Nach initialen Schwierigkeiten bei der ersten …

Vientiane, Laos

My first visa is already expired! In order to activate my second visa, I needed to leave Thailand and re-enter. This can be done in a day by going to the border and coming straight back in but I decided that I might as well see a little of Laos if I was going there anywhere.
I booked the sleeper-train from Bangkok to leave on a Friday night and …

Friday Today we thought that it was finally time that we had a good look at the towers! Anita brought our breakfast up to the room,Roti with dahl and another curry sauce. I never thought that I would enjoy curry for breakfast but it was very good,especially as someone brought it up for us. We walked into town and through some of the huge shopping …

Sabay-dee Laos!

We thought that Cambodia was chilled out but in Vientiane you would be reclining! The pace of life is sooo laid back, so unrushed in stark contrast to what we are used to. Everyone greets you with "Sabay-dee" (Hello) and as in Cambodia the girls were greeted very warmly. Although Scarlett was getting quite annoyed with having her nose and cheeks …

On the 19th,before we left Phnom Penh we went to the Genaside museum which was all about Pol Pot's prisonors and what they did to torture them.
First of all they were kept in these tiny little prisons,they got a grain of rice and dirty water everyday as food and drink.
The soldiers would electric shock them and hit them until they died and …

    Great but odd service

    From a flashpacker's point of view this hotel is a definite 5-star. Great clean rooms with nice showers, very decent breakfast included and a good location close to the river. The reason I only give it 4 stars is that the reception staff does not offer a great service. Now, I don't need overbearing, smiley staff offering me drinks everytime I walk in but we got no information, no maps, no helpful tips, nothing. Even when asked.
    Perhaps this was particularly noticeable due to when we were there; the city was in the middle of its huge celebrations around the end of Buddhist Lent, with the Water Festival in full flow, etc. The hotel was right in the middle of this (super noisy until late but that was just because of the holiday, normally I'm sure it would be pretty quiet) and we were obviously curious about the itinerary of events, what was open, what was closed, etc but the staff was not able to give us more than one-word answers. I think Khamvongsa wants to be a business hotel and therefore put on a very professional, serious attitude (not rude) but it just feels odd; I think they need to think about their overall 'tone'. The breakfast staff was quite nice though. All in all I'd definitely come back to this hotel if visiting Vientiane tomorrow so that's what matters.

    Amazing apartments on two levels. We had a very comfortable stay here and the staff were very helpful. Well situated near the Mekong and walking distance to most places.
