Laos Travel Guide A Vagabond Life

Lovely Laos is just a gem and one of my favourite places on earth. We have travelled the length of this lovely country by boat, bus and mini van, it is such a special country to visit. Luang Pra Bang in the north is a great place to hang out for a few days and popular with travellers coming down the Mekong on a river boat. The Slow Boat trip from Huay Xia to Luang Pra Bang is highly recommended.
