    FRIENDLY CHIDREN ON THE WAY

    From the centre of town head down the road at the back of the tourist office which will lead to a rickety bridge crossing the river, turn left and you will come to a small village, walk straight through it and eventually you will come to the main road where ther is another small road leading to the village of Ban Nam Di (which means village of good water). While you walk the remaining kms to the village you will be greeted by many locals and children. The village is famous for paper-making, which is made by smashing the bamboo into pulp and spreading it on cotton screens where it will dry and you end u with large sheets of paper. The people of the village are from the minority group, Lenten, some are a little shy to talk to you or just not interested. Continue another km along th road after the village and you will reach a small waterfall where you can cool off. It is probably a 15 km round trip so it might be better to get public transport to the village and walk back.

    visit the stupa for good view of town

    From the town you will probably see a stupa in the distance, head in that direction and cross the football field and you will head up hill until you reach the road leading to the stupa. The monks will be glad to open the door so you can see the display inside the stupa. The site offers good panoramic views of the town and sometimes a cool breeze. On the way back we were lucky to catch a football match and we spent some minutes chatting to the committee as this was a local final and there was a trophy to be won. The stupa has been built recently and they are still working on additional buildings.

    smoke from buring field

    About best mean to explore the area in vicinity of town is by bike. Have a ride around, visit villages and rice fields, there are some lovely views as taken from postcards. Bikes can be easily rented from various places in town for decent price. Traffic is more scarce than abundant which makes travelling pleasant and safe.

    And good thing about it: you can stop as often as you like, climb the shade shelter in fields and relax.

    Great on a bike

    by Richard.GVA Updated May 10, 2010

    Quite untypical for Laos: the roads in the Luang Nam Tha county are generally in an excellent condition, and traffic is calm. We really enjoyed discovering discovering the nature and some ethical minority villages on a bike. Temperatures are more pleasant than in the south, but the sun can still get aggressive, especially around midday and early afternoon.
