Looking back, that 26 hour bus trip from Sapa, Vietnam to Luang Prabang was among my unforgettable experience. I’m not going to say it was ok, coz it wasn’t but it was worth it and memorable!
The road from the mountains in Sapa to the border of Vietnam had many curves and rough.
We were loaded inside, fortunately I took the front seat.
Had a couple of stops along the way to pick up and drop off some cargos.
Made friends with a canadian couple and a japanese solo backpacker. 😍
we were all headed to Luang Prabang.
We were stopped by a Laos official at a checkpoint because of the cargos.
Was told that we would arrived around 7pm but turns out the trip was 3 more hours to go.
Played at an indoor soccer field while they unloaded the cargos for 40 mins. or probably more.
Arrived at our destination in one piece.
Ended our trip with a late night dinner with these bunch of cool new friends.
So yeah, I survived that but wont anymore do that route again!
