Relax like the locals in the Laos region. Try wildlife watching and bird watching while you are in the area. Be sure to pack a camera and water bottle and sign up for one of the guided nature walks, cycling tours and wildlife spotting tours.
Trying the food the locals eat is often about more than just sustenance. It is also a window into places and people's lives. Cellophane noodles (made from mung bean starch) and asian basil are just two signature ingredients. Why not order khao jee (baguettes) or laab moo (minced pork salad)? Both meals are popular in this area. Sample fresh fruit at the conclusion of your repast. This is a common choice for locals and tourists. And of course, whatever time it is, Laos is the perfect place to order fruit juice (watermelon, pineapple, sugar apple).
For many, the world is a book and those who don't spend time traveling get stuck on the same page. So book your holiday and make the most of the experiences to be savoured in Phonsavan.
