    Im bangin around Luang Prabang

    Couple of weekends ago me and mrs bld went on a long weekender to Luang prabang, This was my 4th visit and i still found new and interesting things to do, Luang prabangs a lot more busy now than i remember it, seemed to be a lot of young people in town these days to.

    We stayed in the 100 year old Villa maydou a Unesco world heritage listed building, I think it was about $65 a night

    The pool looked like a Frogpond but was
    quite clean, someone just decided to tile it in lime green tiles?

    Think they just have that chemical in the pool that turns urine green to stop people from peeing in it.

    Which doesn't seem to have done the trick.

    ^^^ Can see this being a top thread as usual.

    Are you trying to hide a can of beer in your left pocket? First thread I think where a beer has not been shown!

    Interesting that a building 100 yr old can survive in such a harsh tropical environment, bugs and weather haven't ruined it, yet ?

    I would guess that the bugs and weather done there job, its been completey restored back to how it was using maydou wood. keeping the the ground floors original. My wife has an aunty there who runs a coffee shop in a 100 year old house, That doesnt seem to have been to heavily restored but definately looks a hundred years old

    We flew to LP with Lao airlines, if they dont get enough customers they use the ATR propellor planes, Always been a bit nervous of them since they crashed one in the river in Pakse a few years ago, Its only a 45 minute flight though

    Moobylicious!

    And well done to Mrs Laoski.

    What was her finishing time?

    Did the run start early/late?

    I want to try a few cycling and running events in Southeast Asia but am slightly concerned that I might pass-out early doors.

    Luang Prabang is a world heritage site with literally hundreds of temples and historic sites to visit.

    What does BLD do? Booze at the hotel pool and in some Aussie sports bar...
