On our way south from China, we stopped in the town of Luang Namtha for a few days. It’s a popular place for travelers who are looking to do hill tribe treks in northern Laos. It’s an extremely laid-back and quiet town with a few guesthouses, cafes, and lively night market.
One of the days we rented bicycles from our guesthouse and peddled to the surrounding countryside around Luang Namtha. It’s mostly rice paddies in between villages of different ethnic groups. There are the Tai Dam, Akha, and Tai Lue, among others.
Now enjoy the video:
Great video. It looks so peaceful and what a lovely day. Very different from this March 1st here in Manhattan. A chill is in the air and the streets are very wet from a night of rain, taxis are flying by and rude drivers lay on their horn, sounding as if they are wailing out to passing pedestrians that frustrate them.
Great video! definitely the way I would travel to see the rural areas.
