Thakhek travel photography – Laos

Thakhek is a city in Southern Laos. It is the starting point of the famous 450kms Thakhek motorbike loop. The smoothest way to drive the entire loop is to allocate at least 4 days since long distance driving scooters are tough. This is definetly going to be the highlight of my journey in Laos. It felt like a whole road trip in itself!

It all started taking a ‘VIP bus’ from Vientiane which ended up being a 6-hour journey sitting on a stool. Then getting into a 5-seater tuktuk with 12 people. Being invinted to a Laos wedding party. Enjoying mesmerizing landscapes, caves and local villages. Resting in chilled guesthouses with barbecue, fire and boules. There have been loads of memorable moments through the entire journey!

Both the landscape and the scenic roads are incredibly beautiful. It varies a lot across the whole loop which makes this destination even more exciting. You could easily spend a week exploring the area!
