I will go to Laos the 27. that's wednesday in a week. will leave from Chiang Khong (Thailand) to Luang Namtha.
Does anyone has any suggestions, what to see/do in 15 days in Laos. Is there some must-do's?
I was checking wikitravel and some other websites for accommodation in Luang Namtha. It seems like there are no dormitories at all?! I just found normal rooms. I would like to stay in dormitories, since there you meet other solo travelers.
I like to hitchhike, because in that way one gets more in contact with the locals and one gets a bigger cultural experience. Did anyone tried this in Laos, can you recommend it? (Thailand and Malaysia worked super good!)
I read somewhere that it's forbidden to sleep/camp outside. One would get a big fine… Have you heard about that? Because when I would decide to try hitchhiking, I might end up somewhere without accommodation…
Are busses in general safe? Or is it like Thailand that bus drivers try to rob the foreigners? I met many ppl which had bad experiences with busses in Thailand
I think I travel down Laos, go to visit Cambodia and then either back to Thailand, or further to Vietnam. Anyone fancy to join me for a few days?
Thanks for replies :D
