Luang Prabang

Luang Prabang is all that was promised, a sophisticated, UNESCO-listed heritage town on a mountainous reach of the Mekong – and now ‘discovered’. It is how Bali was often described in the ‘60s and early ‘70s, “before it was ruined”. Although it is low season there was a handful of European visitors. It’s the sort of place you would want to come back to. Unfortunately we were focussed on reaching China over roads that made for uncertain trip planning. We did, however, welcome our 5th crew member, Bill, and the Whippet, and enjoyed a meal overlooking the Mekong.

  1. Enjoying your travel blog and off the beaten track experiences. Reminded me of my trip to Bali in the 70's when I travelled around the island on a small motor bike.


Thanks for your comment. It's nice to see you sharing our adventures.
