In March 2013 we spent sometime travelling through Laos. We started by crossing the Mekong from Thailand to the small but pleasant town of Ban Houei Sai, leaving our passports for a visa whilst we went for lunch. Our bus then took use to Luang Namtha for village life and a walk in the hills. Then on to Nong Khiaw for spectacular river views and a boat trip down towards Luang Prabang.
The full set of photographs from this part of the trip can be found here.
