"Into an opium smoking den in..." Laos Favorite Tip by ilmcaroline

Laos General: 153 reviews and 130 photos

Favorite thing: Into an opium smoking den in Vieng Vien.
or if you're not into that you must visit the most beautiful waterfall which is a day trip from Luang Prabang along the Mekong River.

Fondest memory: The magical, tuneful, mystical Luang Prabang and the serene monks who dwelled within the temples, their orange robes draped over the stone ruins to dry in the heat of the sun.
The children of Vieng Vien who played happily on the waters edge. Beautiful, content children.
