    Xieng Khouang aka Phonsavan

    December 17, 2017 in Laos ⋅ 🌙 6 °C

    On my way to Luang Prabang I just had to make detour to Phonsavan, a town with Pain of Jars, one of the things from Unesco list.
    The ride was quite long with driver not stopping for a toilet until we complained. So even before we arrived I found a plane to Luang Prabang for 35€.
    It's a small town and a new capital. You can still see remains of secret war on Laos, craters everywhere, burning fields so they can find unexploded bombs. It's pretty sad what war can leave behind.
    The hotel was AMAZING, the owner David, a Belgian, was really nice, arranged a pickup, made us curry dinner, arranged a trip to plain of jars, ... I also met a nice Austrian couple who are traveling around Asia and some girl who came here on a bike! Amazing!
