The tropical storm Dokpuri didn’t come – fortunately (if we exclude the heavy rain Saturday night), but on Sunday morning, the weather was perfect for a balade with the motorbike. Which is why we decided to head to Hin Khan Na waterfalls, on the Luang Prabang road.
We left Vientiane center around noon, and it took us a bit more than an hour to arrive at the waterfalls – knowing we stopped here and there to buy some fruits, water and to shoot some spots, as you can see above. By the way, those pictures have been taken with the phone lens I get few weeks ago: the fish eyes lens.
[Talking about it, for the price of 4USD, I can say
I am pretty happy with it, but you get rapidly “bored”,
so I guess I’ll keep it for the GREAT shots only]
The drive was quite pleasant, and after leaving the concrete, we arrived on these beautiful and endless red dusted roads. We were in the middle of nowhere, and I was overwhelmed by this feeling that we call freedom. Spent 3min for some pictures and put my phone in my bag to just appreciate the moment.
Well, I was expecting a crowded place like we can find around Vientiane. Despite there were not so many people, it was like assisting to a contest of the loudest music. So if this is not really your thing, cross the bridge and choose a sala a bit remoted.
Plan your picnic as there are only two restaurants, which serve a yummy organic chicken bbq, papaya salad and some (I assume) daily dishes – this day, it was kaeng nor mai, the bamboo soup – aside.
You might want to bring your own bamboo carpet too, because the sala are in concrete and there is nothing more coming with it.
Well, we had a great moment there, and this is an easy spot to reach when you don’t want to go too far. And you, do you have any getaway to suggest ?
