Laos wasn’t what I expected at all. I thought it would be a little bit like Nepal and that I’d love it, but I didn’t. Both countries had similarities but were very different. It’s taught me not to try and second guess a country before visiting it.
I travelled with Stray through Laos and found that they took me to places I could have never been to on my own. We did some incredible village stays and met some amazing locals who shared with us so much knowledge about Lao history, culture and tradition. This was by far my favourite part of my Laos trip.
I also got a chance to experience the typical Laos travel route, but I was so ill at this point that I just couldn’t enjoy it. I deffinatley spent a lot of time in bed and was told that the party scene was great. I did however manage a tube ride and 1 river bar in Vang Vien.
Overall Laos was a nice chilled out friendly country, where I met some amazing people.
