Our last stop in Laos was the much anticipated Luang Prabang. It’s about an 8 hour bus ride North from Phonsavan. As always in Laos, it takes much longer than you would expect to go any distance. For example, from Phonsavan to Luang Prabang it’s only 260 km, yet it takes 8 hours because the road weaves through all the mountains. We got “good” seats on the bus so it was fairly comfortable, but some people weren’t as lucky and had to sit on bags that were full of grains and corn. I can’t imagine how uncomfortable that was!
