Luang Prabang is unfairly identified with (and often reduced to) its now far-too-touristy dawn Buddhist almsgiving ceremony, and that's a shame. Because while the sight of monks barefoot and in orange robes begging rice may be an interesting ritual, there's vastly more to Luang Prabang than a one-off ceremony. For starters, the ancient city is gorgeous, with lavishly-restored wooden colonial ...

A place for the active traveller, cycling, walking, rock climbing, kayaking. The place is incredible, and photogenic like few other places. Also very cheap so you can spend a long time there. Hot though, so take a lot of water on your hiking. Also, somewhat boring food, pretty much the same in every restaurant. But the beauty more than makes ...

Compared to the hectic, bustling capitals in other Southeast Asian countries, Vientiane's deliciously relaxing atmosphere makes it feel like the small town it is. After you've done the round of temples, the best thing to do here has always been to wander down to the riverside, relax with a cold Beerlao - the Lao national beer - and watch the ...

Keep moving... if you fly here to get to the islands, make sure you have it planned so you do not need to stay here. Not a nice town, it's just for passing through to get to your next destination.

There is not much to do here beside visit Si Phan Don. It is a network of different islands where you can see Cambodia across the Mekong. Also, it is a popular destination to see the illusive pink dolphin.

Really stayed on Don Deang island, just down from Champasak. Really nice get away. Champasak is a sleepy town, but a good base to see Wat Phou, which is a must if you are a temple junkie like me!

Nong Khiaw is a gateway town along the Ou River in Laos. But Nong Khiaw is worth your time, with decent accommodation and lots of restaurants with excellent local cuisine. In fact, I had some of my favorite Laotian food in Nong Khiaw . It is also well-connected to a network of roads. The easiest way to reach Nong Khiaw ...

Small town in the north of Laos that most people visit as a base for hill tribe trekking. I didn't do any treks but Luang Namtha was good place to relax for a few days and get oriented to life in Laos. One of the days I took a bicycle out to some of the villages. The scenery of rice ...
