Laos

Laos is a country in Southeast Asia. It is crossed by the Mekong River and is known for its mountainous terrain, French colonial architecture, hilltop tribal settlements and Buddhist monasteries. In Vientiane, the capital, is the That Luang monument, where a reliquary is presumed to house the sternum of the Buddha. There’s also the Patuxai war memorial and the Talat Sao (Morning Market) complex, packed with food, clothing, and craft stalls.

Luang Prabang

Luang Prabang, the former capital of Luang Prabang province in northern Laos, sits in a valley where the Mekong and Nam Khan rivers converge. Deserted for thousands of years, it was the country’s royal capital until 1975. It is known for its many Buddhist temples, including gold-plated Wat Xieng Thong, dating from the 16th century, and Wat Mai, once the residence of the leader of Lao Buddhism.

The Kuang Si Falls or Kuang Xi Falls (Lao: ນ້ຳຕົກຕາດ ກວາງຊີ), alternatively known as the Tat Kuang Si Waterfalls, is a three-tiered waterfall about 29 kilometers (18 mi) south of Luang Prabang. The waterfalls are a favorite side trip for tourists in Luang Prabang, and begin in shallow pools atop a steep hillside.

Vang Vieng

Vang Vieng Vang Vieng is a tourist town in the Vientiane Province of Laos, located approximately four hours north of the capital Vientiane by bus. The city is located along the Nam Song River. The most notable feature of the area is the karstic relief of the hill that surrounds the city.

06/10/19 – Vang Vieng City / Nam Xay View Point / Blue Lagoon

We didn’t take any photos at the Blue Lagoon since we decided this was our time to relax and turn off all devices but we did end up taking some photos of these water buffalos along the way:

Another honorable thing to mention at this point is that we almost fell off the motorbike on the way to the Blue Lagoon.

Vientiane

Vientiane, the national capital of Laos, mixes French colonial architecture with Buddhist temples, for example the golden 16th-century Pha That Luang, which is a national symbol. Alongside the wide boulevards and tree-lined streets are many notable shrines, including Wat Si Saket, with thousands of Buddha images, and Wat Si Muang, built on a Hindu shrine.
