The Mekong, Green Hills and Tribes…
Chilled on the Mekong, strolled in the timeless streets of Luang Prabang, hiked in the hills and met the Akhas, Hmong, Yao, Lanten Katu and Lao!
A great adventure with unforgettable encounters. A developing country with a strong living culture and a strange relationship to time and glitches.
“The Vietnamese plant the rice, the Cambodians watch the rice grow, the Lao listen to the rice grow” said during Indochina period, it remains so true. If you travel to Laos you will have to let it go and slowdown the pace!
Even if development started and arrives everyday quicker it is just the prémices. Timeless country, even the capital is drowsy, the less busy and noisy South East Asian capitals for sure.
If you like nature, tribes, culture, traditional festivals, crafts and old-fashioned places, you need to go right now to Laos and go out of the beaten tracks.
