My Travel Journal

"There isn't much I haven't shared with you along the road and through it all there'd always be tomorrow's episode" - Elton John

I started traveling around the world since early 80s when I had the opportunity to combine business trips with vacations. Then later when my rezeki is in abundance, there were numerous other trips along the way for vacations, most of the time with hubby and the kids when the timing is right. I have also started to compile the journal and photo-pages covering almost more than 25 years of world wide travel. Some destinations I visited just once, others many times. Many of those places are the obvious famous places people would like to visit but some, the casual traveler doesn't even think to try. I have placed links to my travel at the side bar of my personal page, My Life Reflections, and will be updating them from time to time.

My wish is to continue my travel and complete circumnavigate the globe, insyaAllah…

Q5 4NR Day 12 : Vientiane - Vang Vieng

Day 12: Thursday, 08 Dec 2016
Route: Vientiane - Vang Vieng
Distance: 158 km
Hotel: Phatty Villa 

This morning we planned to visit the Malaysian Embassy before we rode out of Vientiane. As we were not sure of the current location we had to ask the locals for direction and finally managed to locate the Malaysian Embassy at Asem Villa. We met with the embassy staff and was briefed on the safety and road conditions in Laos.

After the embassy visit we made a stop for photo shots at the statue of the last king of Laos. We rode on AH 12 direct to Vang Vieng with a few stops for refueling and a stop at the Hin Hup Laos-Japan Bridge for photo shots. We rested while watching people picnicking by the riverside.

We arrived in Vang Vieng early afternoon and checked in Phatty Villa for USD18/night. After a short rest we rode to Nazim restaurant for a delicious Fried Rice and seafood Tomyam lunch. 

After lunch, some opted to go boating upstream the Nam Song River while the rest crossed the wooden suspension bridge to the other side of the river for Kip10000 and watched the paragliding and hot air balloon activities against the beautiful sunset from the stilt stalls by the river.
