Nong Khiaw and the North, Laos, Feb 14

By minibus we headed to Nong Khiaw, a lazy little town in the Northern part of Laos. We climbed a hill and cycled to some villages before  we hopped on a boat towards Phongsali up the Nam Ou river. During the trip the boat dropped off and picked up locals from small remote villages along the way.

Phongsali is one of the remotest towns in Laos and one of the most difficult to get to. For the time being this has helped to keep the environment and culture relatively authentic, and hardly touched by tourism.
