Thakhek Loop and Pakse Loop: The Most Complete Guide to Laos’ Motorcycle Loops with Itinerary (Updated 2019)

Location: , , 22 min read
The wind is blowing in your neck, your favorite road trip tunes are blasting in your ear and you pass one rice paddy after the other. You’re in the midst of a motorcycle loop somewhere in the countryside of Laos. Giving your bike that extra bit of speed, you realize these Asian bikes do not have any speed limitations. So you have a little fun…70, 80, 90 km’s an hour, oops that might have been a bit too much. Every now and again a beaten old truck passes you, honking because you’re one of the few tourists coming this way. Same goes for the kids living in the local villages, running to the side of the road and waving wildly. Waving back at them, you try to keep the bike straight. Why did they put the throttle on the right side of the steering wheel? That doesn’t matter though because you’re on one of the greatest motorcycle loops in Laos.

Kuang Si Falls in Luang Prabang: The Most Insta-Worthy Waterfall of Laos

Location: , 2 min read
The Kuang Si falls in Luang Prabang are probably one of Laos most famous tourist attractions. Close to the cozy town of Luang Prabang, with its famous nightmarket and excellent food, you will find a cascade of clear water dropping down in front of your eyes. Everywhere you look in the town center, somebody will try to sell you a tour to this tourist destination. Well don’t. Wait until after lunchtime and then see which desperate tuc tuc drivers didn’t make a sale. These are the ones you will want to talk to because they have been unable to score money and are therefore still looking to make some money in the afternoon. You’ll find yourself in the power position to drive the small 30 kilometers from the town and back. Prepare yourself for a bumpy ride, but it is definitely worth it.

Mekong

My first look at the Mekong river was pretty special. Since the Mekong is one of the most important rivers in South-East Asia, it sometimes seems that everything revolves around this source of life. I wanted to show you this very basic (and somewhat muddy) outfit because traveling with a fashionable travel wardrobe is not only about the beauty of clothes. The practical might be more important, however, practical can also be nice to look at. This simple stripe top was the only long sleeved shirt I brought and after a couple of months it has been completely worn out. It served me pretty well though in countries where you have to cover up (like India and the Maldives) or when it got a bit colder (like northern Laos and Vietnam). What’s your favorite travelpiece?

Oh Don Det, how you calmed me down. Despite the fact that Don Det is an island in Laos, that there are stray cats, dogs and water buffaloes, that it has roosters and even a monkey stuck in a cage (so sad), it reminds me of a place in France that I love to visit. What makes it similar is the vibe and the people. Everyone is laid back and there to enjoy life. But apart from the occasional French baguette with eggs for breakfast, Don Det is actually very different from my little French town, as you can imagine.
