This is Muang Ngoi Nua in Luang Prabang province, Laos. I had lunch at the Rainbow Restaurant and was lucky to see the local boat racing. This only happens annually at the Laos Songkran – the festival to mark the start of the wet season.
Muang Ngoi Neua is only accessible by boat and only last year the village was connected with main electricity. It is a truly stunning and peaceful place and is popular with backpackers. More about my travels in Laos in future blog posts.>
