Laos – From Vientiane to Luang Prabang

Laos is all about quietness, about time spent slowly –  you’ll probably look at things and feel them in a way that is different than elsewhere. If ever you book a trip to Laos, don’t get the mistake of trying to see all cities, monuments and attractions in a short period of time – they are not that impressive! What makes it worthwhile is to spend time somewhere – anywhere!

“One Night in Bangkok”

Kao-San Road, the popular backpacker night party and meeting place, had also its share of street food, from fragrant pork meat, to many different curries, skewers, pad-thais (stir-fried rice noodles), Som Tam (green papaya salads) and everything in between.

Don’t play fancy!  Still, most of the road was in safe, good condition

Loi Krathong in Chiang Mai – Thailand

The celebration joins two festivals at once, and a few different meanings: Loi Krathong is the festival of the Floating Lanterns and it is related to the Thai lunar Calendar (12th month). Its main core is the release of the Krathongs into the river, followed by a wish.

Ayutthaya historical city – Thailand

I found it was the former capital of the Ayutthaya / Siam kingdom, erected from the decline of the Khmer empire, on the 14th Century and lasting until the 18th, when destroyed and burned by the Burmese (1867). The kingdom was slightly smaller than actual Thailand.
