FLASHBACK: Laos ~ Tsoo tsoo: Train Travel!

Next Stop: LAOS

Laos is still part of Southeast Asia. Although the ambiance here and culture is more laid-back. I didn’t know what to expect. Me and my friend simply chose those countries close to each other. So the cheapest way, although not the fastest and easiest, is to do it by train.

So this is the train we rode on our way to Nong Khai.

I’d say we got bored since it’s a 12-hour train trip but it’s fine.
Nothing beats experience.
I constantly look at the map and eventually decided not to.
The announcer was speaking in Tai-Kadai which was obviously derived from Thailand.
I was a bit worried but since I am here, I have to take it and just wait.

 Yay! We finally reached Laos. Now we have to ride the famous tuktuk and go to Vientiane! 😀

It looks like a tricycle of course but this is bigger.

Upon arrival,  People were talking to us and we’re just left in awe. Until they thought, “Ah maybe they aren’t Thai or Lao.” Yes you got that right! 🙂 “Sorry, we don’t speak Thai or Lao.”. Which they responded with: “Ah, are you from Myanmar?” 

Anyway, we finally arrived in Vientiane and we’re getting ready for another 12-hour ride. This time, by bus. A bus to Luang Prabang.
