Nong Khiaw is a tiny little spot on the Nam Ou River in the mountains somewhere north of Luang Prabang, with absolutely stunning limestone mountain scenery. Its a pretty lazy little place, which was fantastic - the balcony of my bungalow was on stilts over the river and it was reallllly easy to spend hours out there doing not much of anything. The highlight was a boat trip up the river through a number of little villages with some of the prettiest views possible - I felt like I was on a tiny boat floating through Yosemite Valley...if it was covered in jungle and there were water buffaloes instead of hoards of people.
