Well, when you don't have customers popping by at your stall, this is one way of occupying the time...I was on my way to Phu Asa in the Si Pien Valley, Laos when I stopped by to grab a bottle of mineral water at this stall at the entrance to the road leading to Attapeu, a nature wonderland.
Hawkers, almost all women and girls scramble on to the ferry that plies between Muang and Pha Pin (Champassak-Laos).Only then the vehicles drive in.These hawkers have free rides, and sell anything from lotus flowers, canned drinks to noodles, buns and vegetables.You will never go hungry, nor will the half hour ferry ride bore you seeing these hawkers pleading with you to try their products.
