Places to Visit in Laos

I’ve had the pleasure and privilege to visit a lot of countries in Southeast Asia and Laos is definitely my favorite.

Riding the Thakhek Motorbike Loop in Laos

The Thakhek loop runs to and from the small town of Thakhek in central Laos and it can be done in 3 or 4 days (or even 2 if you’re in a big hurry). It runs through a variety of landscapes of karst mountains, ricefields, through hills and valleys. The road is lined with caves, waterfalls and other attractions that you can visit. In the past years, the roads have been improved a lot and it has become a staple for tourists traveling through Laos. … More Riding the Thakhek Motorbike Loop in Laos
