From one incredible nature to another, all in the same country. After spending some days in Vang Vieng we decided to take the sleeping bus towards Thakhek. A very good option as we didn’t have to worry about accommodation for that night. Well, that’s what we thought…
Although I could spend one more day in Luang Prabang I decided with my friend to travel down. Our next stop was as the title says: Vang Vieng. A small town which has a laid-back & relax backpacker vibe.
I’ve arrived in Laos; Luang Prabang to be exact.
Start of a new adventure. I’ve met my friend there whom I decided to travel with through South- East Asia.
After four days of relaxing in Pai I went back to Chiang Mai. Just for one night. Because the day after I planned to make my way to another country named Laos. I planned to cross the border in the north; overland. My journey was as followed: Chiang Mai > Chiang Khong > Pakbeng > Luang Prabang.
After spending four days in Chiang Mai it was time for a new adventure…Pai. A little town in the north of Thailand. A windy road of 762 curves will lead you to this place so make sure you can handle it because some people get car sick.
A small city that surprised me. I didn’t had any clue expectations of this city but I could live in this place. It’s a small city but there’s still a lot to do and to see. I can imagine why a lot of travellers get stuck in the life of Chiang Mai. Not too busy and not too crowded..just perfect.
After spending too much time in Kuala Lumpur I decided it was time for my new and “planned” destination. At first I wanted to take the train or the bus to Thailand but apparently you spend almost the same money if you take a flight; which is of course way faster. So I booked a flight to Thailand; Bangkok to be specific.
Not planned at all, just because I’ve missed my flight, I booked a ticket to Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia). Missed a flight yes; I’ve missed a flight from Launceston to Bangkok; however I didn’t enjoyed it at the moment it was fine I had an option to go somewhere else. And I chose Kuala Lumpur.
Sitting on a chill spot in Downtown Chiang Mai; enjoying my coffee and breakfast. In a few hours I’ll be on my way to my next destination which is Pai. The bus ride to this new destination seems to be an adventure. It’s according to the locals a very curvy road up; I even heard that a lot of people get car sick, throwing up so no heavy meals before driving to Pai. This is according to the people who live here; so I believe them. Hahahaha… Well I will see how this road is going to be.
Another worthy place to visit in Tasmania is the Gordon Dam. From Hobart it will take you 2h 30min by car to car. Because we made some stops along the way it took us longer than that but that was worth it. Driving through some amazing forest of Tassie and enjoying the beautiful mountains and hills. Sometimes it looked like you’re in a painting. At least that was it felt like for me. Maybe it will feel the same for you…Enjoy
