During the weekend, most city folks in Laos heads out to the country side for some foods and relaxation. There are two very popular resorts within 25 km radius of the city center. One of the oldest establishment is locate in Gang Pa Yarng surrounded with rice field. The popular destination for most city folks is Nong Xeum. This place is huge, I was told that they have something like 80+ individual private huts along the shore of Nong Xeum. We got there late and took awhile before one of the private hut became available.
I would go back to this place again on the next trip back to Laos. The foods was good and bathrooms was clean. Next time I’ll blog about the other place in Gang Pa Yarng. After I got back to the U.S., I found out from my cousin that the owner of Nong Xeum is a friend’s brother. Whom moved back to Laos few years ago to start a business and looks like he hit a jackpot.
