Tonight, I begin my week-long holiday as I journey into the Lao People’s Democratic Republic, better known as Laos. I fly from Singapore into Kuala Lumpur via Tiger Airways tonight, then tomorrow I take an AirAsia flight from KL to the Lao capital of Vientiane. I return to Singapore via Kuala Lumpur one week later, on the 24th.

I don’t really have any solid plans, although I do know I would like to pass through the typical backpacker trail of Vientiane, Vang Vieng, and Luang Prabang. I don’t know where I’ll stay, how much time I’ll spend in each city, or how I’ll get from place to place, but hey, that’s part of the fun!

I’ll do my best to blog (or at the very least post a couple of photos) while I’m on the road, but I can’t promise that. Perhaps the best and easiest way to get updated is either through Twitter @hyperren or by liking my Facebook page, as it’ll be easier and faster to post quick updates through those methods.

If you have any suggestions on where to go, what to see, and what to do, or if you’re going to be in Laos between now and the 24th, post a comment!
