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 13 : Vang Vieng - Luang Prabhang

Day 13: Friday, 09 Dec 2016
Route: Vang Vieng - Luang Prabhang
Distance: 184 km
Hotel: Sabaidee Guesthouse


This morning we rode on a winding road on highway 4 towards Kasi Plateau and enjoyed the spectacular surrounding scenery. The road is mostly in a very good condition except for a few stretches where there were massive landslides eroding the steep slopes and still under major repair. 

We stopped at Pak Mong Junction for a short coffee break then rode direct to Luang Prabhang. We arrived at Luang Prabhang around 2:00 pm and made a detour to the breath-taking Kuang Si Waterfalls and spent some time there.

At 5:15 pm we checked in Sabaidee Guesthouse for USD30/night. We had dinner at Wat That Halal Restaurant and later visited the night market. We had an hour of strong foot massage at the Sabai-sabai Spa before we retired for the night.
