A 7 hour bus journey brought us from Vang Vieng to Luang Prabang :) We arrived at about 6pm and the hotel this time was much better than Vang Vieng...no ants in the bathroom, a shower curtain and both Meera and I got double beds! Yay!
We headed straight out to check out the famous night markets of Luang Prabang....red huts with enticing smells and filled with beautiful hand made goods. First stop was the crepe stall! Nutella crepes rock my world lol ;) I bought some things for my room and small presents...ran out of money so planning to come back tomorrow after a trip to the ATM :)
Day 16- Dave's day out!
This was a day planned by Dave for us which began with renting some bicycles! We rode around the small town and checked out the local bookshops and a cafe :) Meera and I later had lunch at Joma's cafe (it was set out exactly like a Starbucks!).
About 2:30 we hired some Tuk tuks and went to the Tat Kuang Si waterfall. The whole reserve was covered in woodland and very picturesque. There was also a bear sanctuary but unfortunately we were unable to see any bears around today. Adam, Alicia, Justien, Reanna and Alison all jumped from the high dive with a rope but I chickened out lol. We swam near the waterfall and it had little fishes which kept nipping at our feet (free pedicure but it was freaking me out slightly!).
In the evening we hit the night markets again for some last minute shopping :)
Plans: A two day slow boat trip to Chang Mai starting 7am tomorrow morning! Xx
