Here in Vientiane

We had to go to the Laos capital to get our visas. We got a sleeper train from Bangkok; I’ve never ben on one before and it was a great experience. Matt had the best night’s sleep he’s had since we’ve been in Asia and I slept okay although the train was very cold and bright! 
Vientiane is a very small capital and most visitors seem to be there to renew visas. It is quite similar to Thailand although the french influence means that they drive on the right and beef, baguettes and cake are readily available! It was a lot cooler than Nakhon Sawan and we appreciated this and spent most of our time, wandering between coffees shops, restaurants and our guest house!

We are now back in Thailand with our visas so job done but we look forward to exploring more of Laos.

Our first sleeper train experience - a great way to travel!
