Laos… lazy, lazy Laos. If you ever make your way here, and you should, my only advice would be to head to a restaurant at least 30 min before you think you’re going to get hungry. Time slows down in this country, and Lao PDR, that is Lao: Peoples’ Democratic Republic officially, but Lao: Please Don’t Rush as every travel blog you read will tell you, really lives up to its slow paced life tag.

I flew into Luang Prabang, which is also a UNESCO World Heritage site… aren’t they all in Southeast Asia? After Luang Prabang, I went up to the less touristy villages of Nong Khiaw (was touristy) and Muang Ngoi (not very touristy), then south to Vang Vieng which is famous for its tubing and parties by the river (liked tubing, did not enjoy or partake in the riverside-drink-till-you-are-about-to-die-partying), and then to the capital of Vientiane (it’s a city, good food).

That is all. This country is lazy, and I am lazy too.

Look at some pictures:

The beautiful Kuang Si Waterfalls.
