Nong Khiaw, Laos (Day 1)

The van dropped us off a kilometer away to where the guesthouses are. I decided to walk instead of taking tuktuk for 5,000 KIP.

I had to cross this bridge and while the kids are passing by on their bicycle, they were smiling at me so I said Sabaidee which means hello and they all said Sabaidee back. They all seemed happy to be greeted by a foreigner. That part I really liked!


These are the views to the left and right while crossing this bridge.

I chose Sunset Guesthouse for 70,000 KIP per night. It’s a bungalow with balcony and bathroom with hot shower.

It offers a beautiful river view and from the name itself, I had a beautiful sunset view.

I love Indian food so I chose Chennai Restaurant for dinner. I had all these for just around $3.


I like this restaurant. There’s actually Indian people so you know their food will taste like Indian food! The Indian guy who’s running the restaurant kept checking on customers to make sure everything is okay. Good food. Good music. Good service. Good wifi.

So far, my first day in Nong Khiaw has been calm, quiet and relaxing.

I am a woman consumed by wanderlust. I am outgoing but I also love to spend time alone, live for “being yourself”. I love new situations and to meet new people.
