ONE OF THE WORLD’S great rivers, the Mekong separates much of Laos and Thailand. Many towns dot the river, with colourful markets the hustle, fishing boats and river traders the bustle. Sunset views and some spicy Laos influenced food add to the experience.
I’ve barely covered a handful of places here. The cuisine varies from town to town, as does the scenery. Homestay villages where elephants come from the forest, or dragons breathing fire from the river, there is much more for me to explore.
