Rocket Festival, Muang Sing
From Muang Sing I caugh a sangthaew back to Luang Nam Tha and continued on to Vieng Phoukha. My visa was just about up and I was basically just delaying the inevitable, a night in Vieng Phoukha and a night in Huay Xai before crossing the river to Thailand at Chiang Khong. There's not much in Vieng Phoukha though the town has recently opened up for trekking expeditions. I was just looking for a quiet stop during my exodus from Laos. My room was pretty basic, not even a fan, so it was a bit of a sticky night.
