Northern Laos, 2011


These photos were taken during our trip through northern Laos in February, 2011.

We entered Laos from Thailand at Huay Xai, on the Mekong River, and travelled downstream on the Mekong for three days to arrive at Luang Prabang, the ancient capital of Laos.
Along the way we stopped at villages and stayed overnight at two different lodges.

After four very interesting days in Luang Prabang we began a road trip through north eastern Laos, stopping for two nights at Muang La before crossing into northern Vietnam.
