    Day 8 – Luang Prabang πŸ‡±πŸ‡¦ to Hanoi πŸ‡»πŸ‡³

    Another day of heavy rain showers, but this time with all our luggage on our backs, and under plastic ponchos. We looked ridiculous but needs must… Waiting for a flight to Hanoi in the evening, we moved from cafe to restaurant to shelter from the rain, catch up on journal entries and research our steps…

    Day 7 – Luang Prabang πŸ‡±πŸ‡¦

    Today we decided to visit Tad Sae Waterfalls which is around 10km outside of Luang Prabang. The weather was a bit rainy but still very warm. Tad Sae is one of the less visited waterfalls with most tourists choosing to visit KuongSi falls instead. But we heard that Tad Sae was just as beautiful, quieter…

    Day 6 – Vang Vieng to Luang Pranang πŸ‡±πŸ‡¦

    We were up early today to catch our bus up further north to the historic town and former capital of Laos Luang Prabang. The journey totalled 6.5 hours in the end along the craziest roads we have ever seen. Hairpin bend after hairpin bend, we climbed higher into the mountains, the view was stunning. Along…

    Day 5 – Vang Vieng πŸ‡±πŸ‡¦

    We aimed to have a bit of a relaxing day, with the morning spent having a late breakfast and booking a hotel in Hanoi. However, we ended up walking in searing heat to another cave and lagoon, this time a lot more remote. So remote in fact that we were the only people on the…

We decided to hire mountain bikes today which cost around Β£3 for the whole day. We cycled the road over 5km to the Blue Lagoon. The…

    Day 3 – Vang Vieng πŸ‡±πŸ‡¦

    Caught the bus today up to Vang Vieng, 4 hours of winding roads, small villages and stunning views of the Laos landscape. Arrived at 6pm at our home for the next few days. Greeted by the happy and lovely Nouth and driven to her jungle bungalows, over a rickety wooden bridge across the river. Our…

    Day 2 – Vientiane πŸ‡±πŸ‡¦

    Flew into Vientiane the capital of Laos today, a very quick one hour flight from Bangkok Β which felt like nothing compared to all of our recent travelling. Arriving mid afternoon we got driven to our hotel – Vientiane Golden Sun which was very lovely. We had planned to chill by the pool but instead decided…
