North Laos

A good start of the journey to North Laos is Vientiane, the capital of Laos.

Vientiane has still somewhat of the old French colonial atmosphere and several beautiful old wats.

From Vientiane most people go to Luang Prabang, a world heritage site.

Luang Prabang is a beautiful city to visit. It is so peaceful and relaxing. I loved it.

If you have some time you should make a stop over at Vang Vieng on the way to Luang Prabang, a very relaxing place at a river with marvelous limestone rocks and caves. A great place to 'chill outí.

A visit to the hill tribes in the upper North will make your journey complete.

Of course it also possible to do this trip in the opposite direction, coming from Thailand, following the  Mekong river.
