I’m sorry for today’s picture! But, I want to show you not only the beauty of a given country, but also … less pleasant things for eyes… This is probably “nothing bad”; I’ve also seen people selling in Laos dead bats, and it has to be illegal, because they’re hiding them!
Farmers markets are popular in many places around the world, however only in Asia, I have the impression there are lots of “strange” green vegetables. 😉 Well, I mean by this, that I simply have no idea how they are called…
Luang Prabang and its vicinity is an area in Laos that you should really visit!
The ancient town of Luang Prabang is a UNESCO World Heritage Site; it’s a tourist place, but also quite real, at least that was my impression a few years ago. You can also enjoy Mekong River and nearby mountains.
I’m showing you again a sad picture from Golden Triangle in Laos.
More alcohol bottles with snakes, scorpions etc. inside…
“You can try these alcohols and then decide which one you want to buy.”
People who are selling them, believe that this alcohols will improve your health or sex…
I was taking this photos not to show on my blog;
I didn’t have a travel blog that time;
but I was thinking to send them to e.g., WWF or Greenpeace;
making and selling alcohols with/from these animals should be forbidden.
I know that some people are excited about thinking it,
others are really against it;
you can decide on your own is it correct, ethical etc…
The Asian Golden Triangle, i.e., area in Laos, Myanmar and Thailand is mostly known from drugs.
But there is rather a different reason why I don’t recommend people to visit it.
Look at this sad picture; in Laos Golden Triangle you can easily buy alcohol bottles with animals inside! There are e.g., snakes, scorpions or other also protected animals!
I’m showing you this picture to be aware of this;
because it’s a very negative thing!
I’ll continue the topic tomorrow.
Golden Triangle is an area on borders between Laos, Myanmar and Thailand,mostly famous from opium production. I already mentioned it on my blog while writing about Thailand It’s a bit controversial place, and I’m still not sure is it a good idea to visit it.
Buddha Park is located nearby Vientiane and can be easily visited as a 1 day trip from the capital.
You will find there different sculptures.
It’s not an old tourist attraction, but definitely an interesting place.
