Enjoyment factor
It was an experience... We enjoyed being there but can't really appreciate the religious factor (especially when the festival was more like a funfair!)

3rd April 2011

VIP Bus Travel
and no leg room, I feel the pain, but you're in Laos, americans should know that & just go with the flow!

Bus Schedules
Guess you've discovered now in Laos they were a work of fiction!!
3rd April 2011

Vientiane
ZZzz's, probably a bit unfair, but compared to other Asian cities not my best. I got a 'VIP' mini bus from VV, not as far as LP, but still not the best, saw the kayak option, but bit skeptical of how much time would eb on the river. Stupa was impressive, plus the Laotian 'arc de triomphe' Ice cream looks good, I remember it being boiling hot in Vientiane

Vang Vieng
Lots of drunk people tubing, but stunning scenery & best part was 25ks up Nam Song where just me in my inner tube, guide further down & kids hanging onto the tube as we floated down. Did you put enough sunscreen on, I forgot feet & suffered big time!

LP
I liked it, very laid back, wasnt so keen on the hike up to Phou Si in the middle of town. Guess you're enjoying Beer Lao. Kuang Si falls were very pretty, Jo, healing from broken shoulder was my excuse, bikini top is a bit cowardly!!

Cant be a suprise
you've been in asia long enough now to expect something like this, just put it down to experience & when you're home its another memory. I got minivan from Luang Prabang to Vang Vieng, told 5 hour journey, must have forgotten to mention 3 changes, hanging around waiting & more like 8 hours!

Always wanted to go here
but due to protests last year when lots of red shirts had made camp up there didnt think it best to go. Sounds like a good day.

..what if they're energy saving ones!!
We were practically up-to-date. Spoke to Mum and Dad last night to ask exactly when u would be coming home. It sure will be a cultural shock for u both but what unbelievable memories u will have for the rest of your lives!! Take special care love Judithxxx

Taxi's
Can't trust Taxi's either - got in one in Hanoi and the meter was whirling around - I told him to stop and we got out... so tired of being ripped off :o(

Cockroaches!!
I know it's a few months later but having visited Thailand myself it was impossible to crush them - we (me and my ex where up all night fighting about 20 of them in our bathroom with his clogs - totally unsuccessfully!!!but this brought back lots of memories for me thank u. Hope u are both well and enjoying your final weeks. Lots of love Judithxx

Tuk Tuks
Never trust what a tuk tuk driver says!! Avoid bars called Richards!! Cabs are metered & air/c so good way to travel. Wat Arun, very steep steps. Skytrain & BTS also good cheap way to get around.
17th March 2011

Yangshuo
Just arrived today, but it freezing cold and pouring with rain - any suggestions?
16th March 2011

Phi Phi
If you can avoid the crowds its beautiful. Not sure about the rock climbing!
16th March 2011

Limestone Karsts
around Krabi coast & Phi Phi are stunning, not sure if you're in Yangshuo yet, but lots to look forward to there as well
16th March 2011

Cabs
We only had 1 day to cram everything in and the Metro didn't link up very well... How was the Butterfly Park?
