I wasn’t expecting it, but, today turned into a head-down and burn the kilometre day. Cycling along the ‘Sabai dee’ valley of little kids waving in excitement, we made it to the beautiful jewel of Laos – Luang Prabang.



With Luang Prabang 140km away, and with the limited daylight hours, and evening spent on the way seemed inevitable. After an early start, and a quick 1000m descent along improved roads, we started out eating the kilometres to our distant goal. The mountains got pointier, and we hit the languid river that would follow us into Luang Prabang. Beautiful.

  1. Nice pictures! Me and my partner will be in Bangkok from mid November, and then cycling around Thailand, Laos, Vietnam and Cambodia in the following months. I wonder if we’ll ever be near to you?

    Happy cycling 🙂
