Luang Prabang, Laos

Night market and waterfalls


Our next destination brings me to Luang Prabang. Arrived at a skanky hostel with mould and possible bed bugs. So backpacks back on and to the next hostel which was lovely. Very kind and friendly staff, plenty of bananas, and tea. This was out first experience of the night market which was pretty incredible. Stretched along the road a few hundred meters long with colorful lights and lanterns overhanging. This is where we ate dinner, little stalls with fried fried fried food, tasty but extremely greasy. I bought some slippers with elephants on them, no not for me! The next day we visited a waterfall, shame the sun wasn’t shining but you could still see its beauty. We decided to climb up the waterfall side with some people we met that were studying at Bangkok University. Then bikni on and swing rope into the waterfall, probably wasn’t the safest of jumps but at least i wasn’t drunk, Rosie urrhmmmm ;).. .. In Luang Probang we also rented out bicycles and rode around the town. Probably wasn’t the best of ideas without a good map haha! A few wrong turns, but the beautiful scenery made up for it. That night there was an interesting sight, talk about kids playing with fireworks. There was a child and his mother holding fireworks and letting them off in the street, I had to laugh. Our last night in Laos we went to a gorgeous restaurant across the river, of which we had to get in a tiny little boat, in the dark of night, which was an experience.
Next stop Bangkok, Thailand.
