Yes! It's still possible to find the 'real' Asia... the one before plastic consumerism, rampant economic growth and western food on every street corner. The charming and gentle country of Laos wraps itself around the meandering mighty Mekong as it makes it's way south from China to Cambodia. Along it's course, you'll find stunning mountain vistas, villages that have taken a step back in time, great eco-tourism adventures and of course, the very tasty, abundant and affordable BeerLao. Be sure to say a cheery 'Sabaidee!' to the happiest people in South East Asia.

Lovely Laos

Wed, 23 Aug 2017 | By sorkoo | Views [216]

We landed in Laos just as the sun was setting. As we drove into the small city of Luang Pabrang (LP), we knew we would like it here. The streets are quaint and once again have a French influence. The first night we explored the large night market filled ... Read more >

Rivers, Rain and Reruns of Friends

We boarded the bus and were shown to the top deck and taken to our seats. The seats were pretty huge. They were about a seat and a half of a regular coach seat, if not wider, they reclined to about a 45 degree angle and had a foot rest that came up as ... Read more >

Slow boat to Laos

Fri, 3 Mar 2017 | By mtd5116 | Views [257]

Continuing our "loop" through SE Asia, we decided to take a slow boat to Laos rather than a painful 24+ hour bus ride. The slow boat was described to us as more of a party scene where people are really social and daydrink while on this cool boat. The ... Read more >
