Goodbye Cambodia

In transit to Laos

Sunday we said goodbye Cambodia. So sad to leave this fascinating place and friendly people. At least we had a lie in! The evening flight to Luang Prabang arrived at 7 pm and we are met by our new guide Thin (yes that is his name and he has heard all the fat jokes before)! By 8 pm we are at the hotel Palais Juliana. Our room is on the ground floor with a patio leading to the lush tropical gardens around the pool. As soon as I look around I spot ants circling the ceiling! On closer inspection they are also swarming over the bed! The room feels damp and smells musty. Brian and I both look at each other and say can't stay here. Luckily for us Thin is still around and he gets the manager to find us another room on the first floor. Much better and we quickly settle in. None of the buildings in Luang Prabang can be built over 3 storeys high as the town has UNESCO world heritage site status which imposes this restriction. It certainly retains a simple charm which is most attractive. Looking forward to exploring.
