After our three months in Thailand it was time to get back into travelling mode; we hopped over the border to spend one month in laid-back Laos. We crossed the Mekong into Huay Xai, then journeyed east to Luang Namtha, followed by the beautiful UNESCO World Heritage City of Luang Prabang. Next we visited the capital Vientiane, followed by what used to be the crazy backpacker town of Vang Vieng, to Phonsavanh to see the Plain of Jars and then to Sam Neua where we saw the Vieng Xai caves of the Pathet Laos. After visiting Vietnam and Cambodia we crossed back into Laos to see the South; Four Thousand Islands, Pakse and Savannakhet before heading back into Thailand. Here are our travel tips and stories from Laos:
