After making my departure from Luang Prabang I decided to venture 8 hours Southeast to the unassuming town of Phonsovan. This town doesn't fly completely under the radar when it comes to places worth stopping in Laos, but it is one of the lesser traveled roads. The main draw here are some really big jars which were the focus of my visit, sounds weird I know. Upon entering and exploring the town I learned more about Laos than I ever could have dreamed and couldn't wait to share it, opening others eyes to the tragedy this small country must endure.
Often overlooked on the backpacker trail, this is a destination to not be missed. Without the influence of 7/11, Mc Donalds or Starbucks this is a country that offers a raw, rich experience.
