Luang Prabang has these amazing waterfalls not too far from town. Took a day trip there and got to do a little three hour trek and some swimming in the falls. Insanely beautiful.

The country side is just gorgeous. The sounds you hear are unreal.

And they might be coming from this guy.

We went to a local village.




Couple of their local piglets.

We walked by some rubber tree plantations

Then we finally made it to lunch. Some local fare with the infamous Laos sticky rice.

Then it was the springs and waterfalls!





This market was maybe three blocks long but filled to the brim with stuff. For such a little town, it was really jam packed when it had to be and really wide open when it had to be.

The most interesting item I found… tuberculosis. Seriously, someone explain this to me.

Then we’ve got Buffalo Skin – basically buffalo chicharon. No I didn’t try it cause it only came in dried pre-cooked form and I didn’t have the ability to fry them. Otherwise it would have been game on!

Some other mystery greens

And your typical mysterious and sometimes not so mysterious market goods… bugs with the shell, dried seaweed, so many limes, chilies, etc.






I also just have to say that these folks love their donuts.

There was also this awesome pancake lady, who made these delicious coconut flavored mini pancakes.

Then there’s this egg pancake guy. If you look at the photo, in the very front, he’s got a tray of homemade dough that he’s portioned out into balls. He’ll take one and roll it out to the right size, super thin, then toss it on the hot plate, crack an egg on it and swirl it around. Since it’s so thin, it cooks so fast and it’s so crispy, yet still juicy from the egg. So good.


Then of course you’ve got your hot buffets on the street.

Take away wraps of all sorts.

So much grilled meat.

Last but not least, hot pot. This is a serious hot pot with a large clay pot for the coals in the center of the table and all they do is throw a pot on top.


Really amazing sites to see and scents to smell and random fun things to try.
