I finally made it to Xieng Khouang after all these years I visited Laos. I am so glad I included Xieng Khouang as one of my destination on this trip. We decided to fly up Xieng Khouang instead of driving, I’ll take my chance on air versus those windy mountain roads. Even though it seems to be a bit expensive for 45 minutes flight. It costs us about 1.5 million kips ($180) each for round-trip tickets. The price was little high due to the changes departure location – we flew back to Vientiane from Luangprabang instead of Xieng Khouang.
This trip would be difficult if I try to do it alone. It is nice to have a friend that knows the streets around town and have a nice place to stay – especially when it is free of charge :-). I actually stayed at the Mulberries Farm just the edge of the town. Check out their website http://www.mulberries.org/.
