7hr bus trip to Luang Prabang

This post will be short.

The majority of the day was spent in the bus going from Vang Vieng to Luang Prabang. It was a really long day and pretty tiring.

Again, one of the negatives about this tour is the amount of travelling. Just when you start to enjoy a place you end up having to pack your bags and move on. Only a week left of the tour though so it’s important to enjoy the remainder.

The majority of the drive consisted of driving up hills and mountainside roads which were really cool. We stopped at a place called Pho Peng Fa on route which was a peak overlooking large areas of the land. The views from this peak were incredible. I managed to get some really cool panoramic shots on my camera.

Whilst we were there we met a lot of monks who I think were also on a trip somewhere. I have never seen so many monks in the orange and burgundy robes in one single place. It was like being in a movie.

We arrived at Luang Prabang at around 5pm and had some time to relax before going to dinner. The rest of the day is self explanatory… dinner and an orientation walk. Feeling pretty tired now so I’ll write more on the next few days.
