We’ve posted our favourite photos of China and Vietnam. Now we are settled in Bangkok, we’ve been looking through our favourite pictures and memories of our time in Laos and thought we would share some of those with you:

Enjoy:

Luang Prabang waterfall

our favourite waterfall of the whole trip so far

cligg jumping in lunag prabang

me jumping off a cliff… it took me more than half an hour to pluck up the courage to do this!!!

tubing in vang vieng

VANG VIENG BABY!

Sunset on don det

cliff jumping in vang vieng

Poi jumping off a lot higher cliff than I could stomach!

playing on boats in Laos

I love the chilled out feel of Laos

These seems to be a little bit of a theme in our pictures….. WATER (no wonder Poi has already got itchy feet to go back!!!!) Have you been there? What are your favourite memories?

OMG those waterfalls! So beautiful!
I don’t know if I could ever jump from so high but that amazing water would probably tempt me!!!

Yeah I was proud of myself after – although now it’s been a couple of months I am not sure I could do it again!! :S

The waterfall photos looks awesome. When I see people jumping from cliffs I always find myself thinking whats the big deal, its not that high. Untill the day arrived that I was standing on a cliff myself, then I suddenly realised its a bit more challening to jump then I thought 🙂

Ahh that waterfall is amazing… reminds me of Agua Azul here in Mexico. I know how you feel about gearing up the courage to jump from a small cliff. I am the same way but then once I do it I cant stop.

I loved that waterfall – I hope we can visit again before we leave South East Asia!!!
And oh my god – Poi was getting so angry, he couldnt understand why I couldn’t “just jump” I kinda wanted to… but my feet were not for moving!!!!

You totally sold us on Laos! These photos are fantastic. Can’t believe Poi jumped off that cliff – I couldn’t even have watched him do it.

haha, yeah that’s Veng Vieng for you – although Poi literally jumps off anything he sees (as long as there is water underneath!)

What’s the name of the waterfall? I’ll be in Laos in a month (so excited) and I definitely want to go there!

Poi June 13, 2011 at 10:07 pm

yeah, it’s awesome it’s the Kouangsi waterfall just outside of Luang Prabang – normally costs around 30000 kip per a person to get there 🙂

Hey guys heading over to SEA really soon! Blog is being built as we speak!

One question that is stumping me! What do you do with all your bags when tubing in Laos?

Would love to meet up for a beer when I get over!

Jim

Poi July 11, 2011 at 9:52 am

Hey Jim,

Bags are left locked away in a hostel room, as for money etc you can by mini dry bags everywhere in the town to wear around your neck.

You can’t miss them, it’s Vang Vieng fashion!

Give us a shout when your over here!

We LOVE Tad Sae waterfall — but when we went it was low on water. Off to Laos in a couple of weeks. Can’t wait.

Have fun and lots of Beer Lao for me. I’m heading back with some friends from home in November, can’t wait.
