So our last few days in Pai were great. Woke up following the BBQ at the hostel and decided to go out on our scooters. Took a detour up to the Buddha on the hill which was amazing while on our way to Pai Canyon. The canyon is beautiful but quite a trek to get around so left us feeling tired and very hot! Back to the pool!

As this was our last night in Pai we all went out for a few drinks at the reggae bar and some street food. This turned into a lot of drinks and about 6 of us ended up jumping into another hotels pool at 3 in the morning. Regretted it the next day, drying our clothes on the scooter!

That afternoon we caught a bus towards Chiang Kong, only 7 hours on mountain roads, and arrived at our hostel at 1.30am feeling pretty green.

So following a not so bad 6 hour journey on the slow boat we are now in Pak Beng, Laos, for a night before getting back on the boat to Luang Prabang! Another 8 hours on the boat....
