Yes, I am aware that it’s almost 1.5 years since I came back from my last Indochina trip. But I’m still writing about my experience, from flying with Vietnam Airlines to getting sick in Vientiane.

Spoiler alert, I stand with my belief and I think Laksa Sarawak is better! 😛

So this week, thanks to LeAnna of Wander in Germany, we’re going to explore the city and see at least 15 things to do in the city for less than $10!
