The South East Asia – Laos
On my second trip to the South East Asia in November 2007, I spent one month in Laos. Lao PDR (PDR stands for People’s Democratic Republic) is often neglected by travelers because there are no world famous attractions like Angkor Wat in neighbouring Cambodia or full moon parties like in Thailand. But it is very relaxing country, easy to travel and with very interesting history, beautiful landscape, nice people and good food (noodle bowls, croissants). I visited Luang Nam Tha (Trekking), Luang Prabang (Old charming capita, food market), Phonsavan (Plain of Jars; Vietnam War), Vang Vieng (tubing, swing rope, Karst caves, Friends on TV in every restaurant) and Vientiane (Capital) on the banks of might Mekong River.
