Sorry for the late blog entry! Im actually in Vientiane now (capital of Laos)!
We were in Luang Prabhang for about 4-5 days, its such a lazy chilled out town its easy to just do nothing all day and relax! I really loved this place. Its got a mix of french-lao feeling to it. We got a lao massage which kiiiiiillled!!!! and then a manicure and a pedicure to make up for the pain! We went to a few temples, the national royal museum and to this amazing waterfall where we climbed all theway up to the top. There were also many smaller waterfalls there, it was gorgeous (i havent put up pix coz the computer was too slow there!) So apart from this we went to the nightmarkets and watched movies at there so called cinemas - which are really private rooms with lots of pillows and cushions that u can lie on and you have a
wide screen tv to urself its great!
We left Luang Prabhang to go to Vang vieng on a public bus which took like 6 hours or something. The main reason we went to vang vieng was for the tubing. THe tubing was great. You get your own tube which is like a tyre and then you set
of down a river and float along and stop off at all the bars on the way where they drag you in with their sticks and you can chill there until you want to move on! At each bar (there were 10 in total) you can go on the zip rope swing and swing into the river.
Its reallly cool!! THe more you go down the river the higher these swings get - i only managed the the first 3, i got scared after that!
So we stayed here 2 days and we left for Vientiane today which is where we are now! The main reason being to get our cambodian visas!
So my next blog will be from cambodia woo!
