Laos,Vang Vieng

Location: Vang Vieng, Laos

It took us 7 hours to travel to Vang Vieng. It was a little worrying to know that this road was the main highway from Cambodia to China!!

We had lunch at Phoukoune where the local market was fascinating. There are few fridges so people buy fresh every day

The mist in the valley as we drove over the karst mountans from Luang Prabang

The people in these mountains are so poor as there is little land for crops...here there is space for a peanut crop.

The road becomes narrow and winds it's way through the karst mountains, Laos answer to China's Guilin

We walked through the fields outside of the town to get to the Elephant caves and the Tham Chang caves once used as a hideout by the locals when the Chinese invaded.

The centre of Vang Vieng

The panorama of the Nam Song river

There was no light in the caves at Tham loup

The Nam Song river looking towards our hotel

The sundowner festival is held one evening per month...local people sing and dance and knock on doors to encourage the Buddha and his wife to come back to earth
