Vientiane - capital of Laos
March 19, 2018 - Vientiane, Laos
De eerste drie dagen zitten er op. De zaterdag beleefden we op grote hoogte in een Airbus van Thai Airways. Tegen zondagmiddag aangekomen in een gezellig hotelletje (VKS hotel) in het centrum van Vientiane, de hoofdstad van Laos. Propere kamer, deugddoende douche, airco… kortom: goeie keuze! Een eerste verkenningstochtje door de stad. Frisse pint (Beer Lao voor 10000 kip = 1,20 euro voor 64 cl…

Lamenting Luang Prabang
November 25, 2011 - Luang Prabang, Laos
Some towns seem timeless. A haven where you can do as little or as much as you like.UNESCO listed Luang Prabang is once such place. Set at the confluence of the NamKhong (Mekong) and Nam Khan, it embraces its history and cultural and spiritualsignificance as Laos' former capital and a centre for novice monks.One tourism figure quoted 34 wats in the town; they definitely dominate the lay of theland, but sit quietly in the background as the town goes about its daily life. The monksand novices...

Hard mattresses and chicken soup
November 13, 2011 - Nam Tha, Laos
Northern Laos is not a place for the faint-hearted. The mountains roll on forever and the views are spectacular. But along with the beauty comes the harshness of living in such an environment. Yesterday I returned from spending three days with minority Khmu tribes in small villages as the solo paying member of a Green Discovery tour. The first village, Ban Namkoymai, or Nahome, was only accessible by foot. My guide Ae, local guide Chom and I hiked for the morning up the side of a mountain,...

Zip da de do dah, zip da de day
November 9, 2011 - Nam Tha, Laos
After a solid day of zip lining yesterday, a partial sighting of a gibbon and a definite sighting of a giant black squirrel, it is nice to be in a town with a few creature comforts - like my first hot shower since arriving in Laos. We saw the giant black squirrel from our treehouse just before we headed out on a morning trek up the side of a very slippery hill. It was here that we saw the treetops moving and could see some shapes in the distance which apparently were gibbon... others near...

Do do do the funky gibbon
November 8, 2011 - Nam Tha, Laos
(with apologies to The Goodies...) It's about 6.30am and the mist is starting to lift as dawn breaks over the jungle. Lots of birds are singing, but there's no sign of gibbons. Yesterday our group of 11 met at the Gibbon Experience headquarters in Huay Xai at 8am. I had just finished a delicious banana pancake and fresh fruit for breakfast and was given a few packing tips from a girl who had just returned from doing the waterfall version of the trip (I'm doing the classic, but tips about...
