We were in Laos for 22 days. Here is the route we took, what it cost, and some information on the country.
Our last few days in Laos were spent on the slow boat, drifting down the Mekong river and taking in the views.
We had a bit too much time in Luang Prabang after deciding to skip Vang Vieng. We wanted somewhere close yet completely different – Nong Khiaw was perfect.
A complete contrast to Vientiane, we did a huge amount in Luang Prabang. While slightly touristy, it is so beautiful it’s hard not to love it.
Vientiane does have a reputation of being a bit boring, due to a lack of sights. We didn’t have time to see much of it but we liked what we saw.
