Young Monks in Luang Prabang Laos

We walked along the river in peaceful Luang Prabang, the old capital of Laos. It was a peaceful amble, not even a stroll. There was a cool breeze coming off the river and the punters at the riverside cafes were quietly sipping their tea or afternoon cocktails. We turned a corner and above our heads, Read the Rest…

Remote North-Eastern Laos

Luang Prabang, Vientiane and Vang Vieng are popular tourist destinations in Laos. In fact, traveling between these cities is now a very well-trodden backpacker path. Luang Namtha is opening up as an eco-tourism destination. Many travelers we met were on their way to Savannakhet and the 4,000 islands area. We, on the other hand decided Read the Rest…

Luang Prabang

Our arrival in Luang Prabang was magical. The sun was setting over the Mekong, a golden disk inching its way behind the mountains on the horizon. The hubbub on the boat dock, as our boat disgorged its hundred or so passengers, bathed in a calming yellow-and-gold light.

A Smile Worthy Of A Princess

While in Phonsarvan in North-Eastern Laos, we took a day trip to visit the Plain of Jars, a megalithic archeological site. The tour also included a stop at a Hmong village where we met these kids.
