First of all, I would like to wish all my blogging friends to have a year full of Joy, Hope and Happiness :)
I just came back from a road trip to the north eastern Thailand and Laos, and after I got back I had to catch up with work.
The trip was fun and interesting. My friends and I (5 persons total) left Bangkok on late December 27th night and got to Chiangkahn, a town in Leoy province the next morning. I really like this town. The locals are so friendly and they've tried to keep the architectures like the old days.
The Old Chiangkhan Hotel where my friends and I stayed - it is located right by the Khong River, the river that is on the boarder of Thailand and Laos
A little gift shop selling vintage souvenirs
After staying for one night, we headed to a small town called Vang Vieng, a small town that became a popular place for tourist due to its beautiful scenery - however, the inter-city road from Vientiane to Vang Vieng is quite rough -- it took us 6 hours on the road to go for about 180 kilometers
The next day we traveled to Luang Prabang -- again it took us a whole day on the road with many turns up and down the mountains
A group of girls dressed up in traditional tribal costumes :) -- taken on the way to Luang Prabang
Luang Prabang has been recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage site
We rent bikes to travel around the city
And did some shopping at the night market in the evening
I did finished knitting the scarf (I posted about this a while ago) during our ride to Laos.
My friends used the remaining yarns to knit a matching hat for me :)
I hope I do not bore you too much with the story about my trip. :)
That's all of the highlights of my trip.
Thank you very much for stopping by. I will be back soon..hopefully to post about something I make.
