Travel to Luang Prabang, Laos

Image
The day we headed to Luang Prabang we got up early to catch the 9am bus. The schedule said leave at 9am arrive in Luang Prabang at 2pm. We planned for longer after the trip to Vang Vieng took us way longer than we thought it would.


We got up and had breakfast at our hotel which was the best of the trip. Muesli with bananas - you can't really tell but they did not skimp on the bananas - they are just under the muesli. Delicious! The bread was not that good and the jam stuff I have no idea what it was, but I was not a fan. The Muesli and fruit were plenty and tasty.


The next few photos will be from the drive to Luang Prabang so might not be the best since they were shot out the window. So we got a pick up at our hotel from a bus that drove around town a little bit before dropping us off at a bus station. When we got off I looked outside and we were 2 doors down from the hotel...I was just like if I would have known we were just going 2 feet we could have walked...Around 9 a guy…

Vang Vieng, Laos

Oh Vang Vieng. I have a love hate relationship with that town. Well more with the area. I love the area, there are so many amazing outdoorsy things to do, but I did not like the town. At all. It is just one big tourist party town. Apparently it used to be super party central, but then too many tourists died while drunk and tubing (tubing down the river going bar to bar all day) and the government cracked down on it. There are still more bars there then we saw anywhere and they all had ridiculous signs for free booze or other souvenirs if you drink there. Free t-shirt with alcohol purchase! Free drinks 8-9pm! Buy one get one free drinks! Free shots with every purchase! Drink all the alcohol!! I'm really glad we were there during the low season as I cannot imagine I would have like it at all if there were even more people partying it up there. It was like what I imagine MTV Spring Break to be like. I don't know for sure as I never did that party all day spring break thing, but …
