Views of Laos: the north

26 08 2013

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.
