After seven days in the lovely Luang Prabang, and a total of ten days in Laos, it’s time to say goodbye.
Vientiane, Laos PDR
Our stay here has been a mix of highs and lows. We felt we overstayed in Vientiane but we had no choice as we need to apply for G’s Vietnam Visa there. We were able to witness their festivities during the Ban Tat Luang – their Christmas/New Year – but it felt more like a big Perya with sellers everywhere broadcasting their wares on loudspeakers, trash everywhere, etc. (more about this on a separate post maybe). It should have been a ‘holy’ event but it didn’t feel like it, felt more like a fiesta than anything else.
