We share some big changes around here and, most importantly, how they will affect you, our loyal readers.
Last May, we attempted summiting Pha Ngeun, but the mountain had other plans for us. This time, we brought reinforcements.
From caves to lagoons, ziplines to inner tubes, we make it a water-themed day in Vang Vieng with an out-of-town visitor.
We’ve wanted to stay at this rustic little hideaway as long as we’ve been coming to Vang Vieng, and finally got our chance.
Gearing up for hosting a string of visitors, enjoying the lovely November weather, and other low-key adventures.
It’s that time of year again—That Luang Festival Time—time for topping up merit and paying respects to the Great Stupa.
When we heard that a local area farm was hosting an open house complete with activities for kids we knew we’d have to check it out. It is autumn, after all.
Yep. They do Halloween here…and with a vengeance. Thankfully, it’s still all about the little things for this 16-month-old.
Our second attempt walking the picturesque (and completely exposed) river path from downtown to the ice factory. Will we succeed this time?
It’s festival time! For the Lao that means beer, parties, and temple time (seemingly, in that order). And for us—bad kale and Sherlock Holmes.
The Lao Zoo may just be the most overlooked and misunderstood zoo in Southeast Asia. It’s not really even a “zoo” at all, but something far more interesting.
Making the most of a couple of much needed sun breaks to explore the lush Nam Lik area by foot and paddle.
Call it a Robinson Crusoe fantasy, outdoor enthusiast’s dream, or ad hoc creation of an isolated madman, Nam Lik is a lodging enigma of the best kind.
Boun Awk Phansa was meant to mark the end of the rainy season. Tell that to the three big storms that have soaked Vientiane in the past few weeks.
For some in Laos — the big reward after a long, hard planting season. For many, many more — yet one more excuse to party down.
The full moon of the eleventh lunar month marks the end of the Rains retreat, when monks emerge from monastery and light spills out onto rivers and doorsteps.
What can US$50 get you in the Green Season in Laos? Both, much more than you’d expect, and exactly what you’d expect.
It’s my birthday [again], so we’re heading up to the lake! Our usual place is closed for renovations — a perfect excuse to try some place new.
Noe tries out a new daycare after a three-month hiatus, and we inadvertently crash a fashion fundraising event at one of Lao’s finest restaurants.
