Beautiful Laos

Posted over 11 years ago

Laos has been one of our final destinations, and it’s definitely competing for the top spot of our favourite country on this whole trip. Everyday is Laos has been wonderful - great people, excellent food, amazing scenery, fantastic experiences, very laid back atmosphere, we want to come back to live here.

Some highlights include:

  • floating down the river on giant inner-tubes, in Vang Vieng
  • trekking to remote hill-tribe villages at the top of the mountains
  • kayaking through rapids (and falling into them)
  • riding elephants in the jungle
  • lazing on the river banks of Muong Ngoi

And since this is our last week in Asia we may as well list the things we’ve eaten over the last 8 weeks: 

  • snake (the chef chopped off its head in front of us and made us drink its blood)
  • squirrel
  • deer
  • porcupine
  • wild boar
  • duck feet (we ate this one unknowingly in the dark!)
  • frogs legs 
  • egg-duck (this is a baby duck which is nearly ready to hatch, but steamed and eaten with a spoon instead)

All were tasty, we’d eat them all again, except maybe the poor baby duck…
