Feb 5, 2012 - Goodbye to Laos and into Thailand

3February Muang Ngoi is reckoned to be one of the prettiest spots in Laos. We reached it by boat as there are no roads here, 23 of us squashed into an over sized canoe with a bench seat on either side and our knees squashed up in the middle. You can do all the way back to Luang Probang like this for 7 hours but we decided that the mini bus is far more comfortable. One hour was quite adequate but the scenery was wonderful.

Golden Triangle Since our last update we have been to the Golden Triangle. This area borders Thailand, Burma and Laos. We got there by a long tailed boat that took us down the Kok River. The water level was extremely low so at times we had to get out of the boat and help get unstuck (well we all helped except Tori) she just watched. On the way we visited some tribal villages. These villagers are quite the entrepreneurs and have shops set up throughout their small villages. The suckers that we are we could not resist buying a few items....
