Huay Xai, Laos
While in Laos I did a jungle trek into the Bokeo Reserve, then spent three days ziplining from treehouse to treehouse. We would sleep up in the canopy and every morning and evening our meals would come zipping in.

Luang Prabang, Laos
"Tak Bat" or morning alms is a living Buddhist tradition in Laos which has become a tourist attraction on the must see/do list of Luang Prabang. It is indeed a beautiful sight and even after living in Laos for almost 2 years, I never tire of it....

133/04 Samsenthai Rd, Vientiane Capital, Lao PDR, Vientiane, Laos
This temple was a place of prayer for victory in battle for the Vientiane kings. The last one, Chao Anouvong, probably prayed here before leading his ill-fated rebellion against the Siamese. The Siamese subsequently leveled the city, destroyed all...

Vang Vieng, Laos
Bring swimming gear, a good pair of sneakers and your camera! The Tham Phu Kham Cave and Blue Lagoon is a short scenic drive from "downtown" Vang Vieng. What you'll find is a small lagoon with beautiful teal waters and a (steep!) climb to cave...

Paksong, Laos
One of the most bombed locations during the Vietnam War, this plateau a few hours north of the Cambodian border is now a peaceful place of waterfalls, coffee and tea plantations. At 3,000 - 4,000 feet above the surrounding country, it offers a...

Kounxoau Road, Ban Phonehueng, Luang Prabang, Lao PDR, Luang Prabang 01160, Laos
It's impossible to not fall for the colors on the exterior of the Wat Xieng Thong (Temple of the Golden City) at that golden hour before sunset in Luang Prabang, Loas. I'd been working in nearby Vietnam for a few months and decided to take a solo...

Luang Prabang, Laos
Monks Almsgiving Round or Tak Bat in Luang Prabang is a very colorful, beautiful and orderly affair. If you are giving Alms, kneel on a mat, keep your head and feet bare in humility and quickly and silently place a small amount of rice or other...

Nam Song River, Vang Vieng, Laos
After a long drive of sharp turns and near misses -- going south from Luang Prabang or north from Vientiane along Route 13 in Laos -- Vang Vieng is the perfect reward for the journey with its calming yet stunning views. Take an early morning walk...

#78, Ban Inpeng Vat Chanh, Vientiane, Laos
Oh the delight! For a really good meal in Vientiane visit Makphet. I was a repeat visitor - four times -- and each drink, meal and dessert was full of flavor and interest. I would have stayed in the city longer if only for the meal but my visa...

Vientiane, Laos
Four kilometers from the center of Vientiane stands the beautiful gilded stupa. It is an important national monument to Laos. Legend has it that the stupa was erected by Ashokan missionaries as a reliquary for a piece of the breastbone of the...

Luang Prabang, Laos
Stayed at the lovely Saynamkhan Hotel just a stone's throw away from the Saynamkhan River. The River is quite interesting with so many things going on. What I love about travelling is watching the locals do the everyday things. I took this shot by...

Luang Prabang, Laos
On a deck overlooking the Nam Khan River and with just 6 tables, Rosella Fusion Restaurant is a secret favourite with expats in Luang Prabang. The restaurant offers amazing value for tasty Thai and Lao dishes like pad thai and spicy Lao beef...

Luang Prabang, Laos
What's neat about Luang Prabang was seeing the Buddhist Monks in their traditional orange attire because it made for a great contrast when I took my photos. The bridge across sits a lovely restaurant, Dyen Sabai, which I highly recommend. The...

Muang Ngoy, Laos
Meung Ngoi, Laos: This was my favorite village in all of Laos, and possibly of my whole 5 month trip through Southeast Asia. This tiny town is only accessible by boat, no fresh water, no internet, and electricity for only 3 hours/night (bring your...

Pak Beng, Laos
Pakbeng is a much needed break during a 2-day Mekong slow boat cruise. It's a nice place to finally stretch your legs, refuel on Laap and recharge with a good night's sleep.
Save Place
13, Vang Vieng, Laos
Vang Vieng could be considered a touristy town, but don't hold that against it. It's a magical place, and if you don't find it floating down the river, rent a bicycle and head straight out into the countryside. This image was taken after climbing...

114 Rue Pangkham, Vientiane, Laos
Monk making the rounds in the inner courtyard of Wat That Luang in Vientiane, Laos. The temple was built in 1566 and is now considered to be one of the most important national symbols in Laos.
Save Place
Xieng Nyeun, Vientiane, Laos
The name “Nampou Coffee” is a relic of the previous shop and belies the deliciousness inside just as much as the overly typical entrance does. Nothing that you can see from the outside does justice for the restaurant in a way that I would like to...

Pak Ou, Laos
Buddha statues in lower Pak Ou Cave on the Mekong River north of Luang Prabang, Laos. Pak Ou is a series of limestone caves which contain hundreds of Buddha statues palced there over the centuries. It is a popular pilgrimage site for local people,...

Ban Chan Neu, Chom Phet Street, Luang Prabang, Laos
Last sunset of 2010 as seen from the Santi Resort and Spa in Luang Prabang, Laos. The sunsets in this town are spectacular--worthy of a UNESCO World Heritage designation in and of themselves!

Historic District, Luang Prabang, Laos
You haven't done Asia until you've done a temple stay - so sayeth a snobby backpacker I once met. I hate to admit it, but that snobby backpacker was on to something; nothing replicates the experience of breaking bread with a monk, discussing the...

Rue Chao Fa Ngum, Ban Thatluang, Luang Prabang, Laos
In between running from temple to temple to waterfall to cave, pamper yourself with the best spa in Luang Prabang. The Angsana Spa is bliss. When the therapist had to (quite literally) peel me off the table, I knew it was the most amazing massage...

Don Det, Laos
We took the road north from Siem Reap, Cambodia to Don Det, one of the smaller of the 4000 islands of Laos, arriving as the sun set on the little emerald isle. It was quite peaceful; the only hint of its “party island” infamy was the chalkboard...
