My personal 5 favourite places of Laos

Traveling in Laos

1. Luang Prabang
I just love the part of old city between the Mekong and Khan River. And good restaurants with good western food (and not expensive). Easy to get there by bus from Vientiane or by airplane from Chiang Mai, Bangkok or Vientiane (and other international places). Great place to make day-trips in the area.

2. Vientiane
 I love small cities with history, the "Wat Sisaket" is my favourite place to visit. Just walking along the riverside. And of course good restaurants.

3. Don Khong
One of the 4000 islands in the southern Mekong "delta". A village in between a beautiful natural area and with a remarkable history. Beautiful old colonial houses.

4. Muang Sing
High up in the north of Laos in the mountains with almost untouched nature. I love mountains.

5. Vang Vieng
OK I do not like the "khao San road" area of town but it is easy to avoid and what is left is a beautiful karsten landscape and friendly people combined with good French food.

One night in Bangkok and the world is your oyster

The journey of Traveling 2 Thailand did begin with One Night in Bangkok in 1985 and since 2009 it became a personal non-commercial travel blog as inspiration for traveling & motorbike riding in Thailand. Made just for the sheer love of traveling and sharing experience about traveling in South-East Asia. To travel beyond the beaten track & highlights. Enjoy!
