Sabai dee, Luang prabang

I feel like I come to visit friend or sister in Luang Prabang. Thailand and Laos is like a cousin.
We look so similar and our language is so close. I can speak Thai language to them when i'm in Laos.

"Sabai Dee" is a greeting word in Laos but it means 'I'm fine' in Thai !!! So, i sometimes feel like i keep saying 'i'm fine' when i say 'Hi' to everyone

Street in Luang Prabang

Someone said "If you want to see how Thailand look like in past 50 year, you will have to go to see 'Luang prabang'

I love here !! It's small and pretty like a shy girl. There are no traffic like Thailand !!

Khong River

Thailand and Laos share the same river at the border. That is 'Khong' river.

It's so nice to hear people train to row a boat for their boat racing. It's the same as Thailand culture when water is high tide in rainy season.
