Laos has no sea but has 4000 islands. In the South, near the border with Cambodia, the Mekong widens and divides in multiple channels and waterways, creating an infinity of small islands. An ideal place to rest (or not).
Did you know there is an Angkor style temple in Laos, from the same period as the famous Angkor Wat in Cambodia? Vat Phou is located 10km from Champasak, a quiet village by the Mekong in the South of Laos.
The second month of my RTW trip has been interesting, very hot and very cold, melancholic, funny, sporty and much more. This is a summary of the changes I have lived this month, the things I have learnt, the places I have visited and the best moments I have had.
Have you ever heard of experimental travel? It is a different approach for visiting new places. An unexpected event gave me an idea for an alternative way to discover Vientiane, the capital of Laos.
