We have moved so fast on our travels and knew we were not really going to get time to "sink in". This method allows you to check a lot of things out, but it's hard to get a good feel for a place. All the downloads we've had from others was that Laos is a great place to take some time in. So we are - and it's the best place we could have chosen to slow down in. After a week in Luang Phrabang having multiple days with both bikes and a motorbike, it feels so good to know a place - at least be very comfortably familiar with it all.
I know Asiana would agree, LP is top notch. Very grateful for a week here.
