Apirak called in again! Yay! Boy you really come around a lot! Thank you so much!

Pha That Luang  (‘Great Stupa’) is a gold-covered large Buddhist stupa in the centre of Vientiane, Laos. Since its initial establishment, suggested to be in the 3rd century, the stupa has undergone several reconstructions as recently as the 1930s due to foreign invasions of the area. It is generally regarded as the most important national monument in Laos and a national symbol.

Did you know?

Laos has been tagged as the “World’s Most Bombed Country.” Over two billion tons of bombs were dropped in Laos during the Vietnam War. Sad record…

Apirak wrote again! Boy you are spoiling me! He tells me that when Thai People want to get crazy on their springbreak – they go to Laos! I was not aware of that fact ^^ Nice somehow. German people go to Mallorca btw.

The Royal Palace in Luang Prabang, Laos, was built in 1904 during the French colonial era for King Sisavang Vong and his family. The site for the palace was chosen so that official visitors to Luang Prabang could disembark from their river voyages directly below the palace and be received there. After the death of King Sisavang Vong, the Crown Prince Savang Vatthana and his family were the last to occupy the grounds. In 1975, the monarchy was overthrown by the communists and the Royal Family were taken to re-education camps. The palace was then converted into a national museum.

The Khone Papeng waterfall situated in Laos is the largest waterfall in whole of Southeast Asia.

The fourth and last postcard from my Olga! Laos!!

More than amazing! So cool! Thank you Olga! Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU!!

How sweet are these little elefants! I love them they are so cute. Olga told us she had a ride on one elefant in Laos, and my Puu Suman too did this once in Nepal. Sounds really like a lot of fun, and I think I have to ad it to my “100-things-I have-to-do-before-I-die-list” YES I have such a list!!

Do you have such a list? Have you already had a ride on an elefant? What was it like?

I send love!
