Laos: Luang Prabang

Luang Prabang, how beautiful. French and fancy. The first day that Sara and I arrived we checked into a hostel, SpicyLaos Backpackers which was a total home away from home. Free internet, free breakfast until noon and a bed that was comfortable. The first day Sara and I walked around town visiting temples and shopping.


The second day we went up the Mekong to visit a whiskey village and caves that are filled with Buddha statues. The whiskey village teaches you how they make Lao Lao, just incase we were wondering.

The next day we went to a waterfall outside the city which was awesome. The water was turquoise because of the minerals and you could even go swimming (I passed because the water was freezing).
