Tyson didn't see to much of the town :( but it seemed like a fun place where we could have spent a few days. Since our hotel was a few km's out of town, I had to make several bicycle trips in and out to buy some essentials for Tyson (such as food and water). Here is our hotel and the beautiful view.
From Vang Vieng, we traveled by bus to Vientaine, and then further into Thailand, into Udon Thani. We spent the night there and then flew to Bangkok the next morning. From there we booked a flight to Chumphon, which is near a pier. This morning we took a 3 hr boat to Koh Tao ("Turtle Island"). The boat was packed with backpackers, and below is a photo of the chaos trying to get off the boat and find our packs.
The island is beautiful!!
