A typical tut-tuk seen on the streets of Vientiane, Lao People’s Democratic Republic (also known as Laos).  The tuk-tuk has become a sort of trademark of travel in Southeast Asia.  It’s cheap (don’t forget to negotiate), convenient and fun to ride!

The famous night-market of Luang Prabang, Laos.  There are many beautiful handicrafts for sale here, but bargaining is a must to get a fair price.

In Southeast Asia, it is common for the salesperson (especially saleswomen) to flatter a foreigner by complimenting him.  I think this is an excellent strategy as it makes the foreigner happen and usually results in a good sale.  Bottom-line: everyone is happy!

A two-wheeler bridge in Luang Prabang, Laos.  There is one “lane” each for incoming and outgoing traffic (bicycles and motorcycles).  There is a separate new bridge for larger vehicles.
