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.

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.
