Vientiane, Asia’s French city (Day 14 – Day 16)

After 2 weeks, I have finally reached my destination; Vientiane and I still have 1 full day to explore the city before I fly back to Malaysia. When I reached Vientiane from Vang Vieng by van (40,000 kips), it was already 4 pm. The van dropped me at Setthathirat Road. This is the focal point of Vientiane where most guest houses concentrated. After searching for a...

Chill out in Vang Vieng (Day 12 – Day 14)

On my way to Vientiane, I made a stop in Vang Vieng for few days.

So here I am, doing the tubing on the...

Luang Prabang, the UNESCO World Heritage City (Day 10 – Day 12)

Let us continue the adventure… So I have arrived at Luang Prabang alive. But the problem right now is how the hell am I going to find a place to sleep at 4am? Practically the whole town was sleeping. Together with Antoine, Pierre, Remi and Guillaume, we lunged our backpacks that feel heavier than usual into every corners along the dimly lit empty streets and...

Relaxing in Pai (Day 6 – Day 8)

Of all the 7 places I have stopped by during the journey, Pai is the place that I truly relaxed. The funny thing is I never heard about Pai before let alone included it in my initial travel plan. It was recommended by a fellow traveler I met in Siem Reap. Getting opinion of a place from other traveler is better than relying on a guide book. A town with such a funny...

CNY celebration in Chiang Mai (Day 5 – Day 6)

Day 5 was Chinese New Year eve. Normally, I would spend my time shopping for new cloths back at home before go back for reunion dinner with my family. Yes, I’m a last minute shopper.
