“Life is very interesting. In the end, some of your greatest pains become your greatest strengths…” - Drew BarrymoreDay 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.
