Attapeu was interesting and pretty far off the beaten path. I spent a few days exploring south of the Bolevan Platteau, looking for minority villages.
I found a vast HAGL rubber plantation and a lot of illegal lumber while I was at it…. HAGL has made news in England recently for its ties to Arsenal Football Club. For some reason, Arsenal fans don’t want their club associated with forcing indigenous people off their land and stealing their hardwoods. Go figure.
Laos is beautiful though. I’d go back in a second.
