Vang Vieng Laos

Vang Vieng to Luang Prabang

I decided to take advantage of the break in weather and head up to Luang Prabang from Vang Vieng. It's a rough ride, about another four hours north on a roughly paved road, but on that day it was slippery and dangerous, and we were delayed a few times as a result of the bad conditions. I was a little nervous we'd slide backwards over the cliff into the canyon! And all the cattle on the road didn't help either!
I was so glad to get out of Vang Vieng and all the televisions in the outdoor restaurants grinding out endless reruns of Friends. There were a few things to do and see there, but the town itself didn't agree with me.

Check out this guesthouse.
