I visit Luang Prabang many times. I come to this lovely town by plane, bus and boat. The river journey by boat is by far the greatest. Take your time and travel 2 days from Thai border to Luang Prabang by a local barge called in Laos the slow boat.
The ordinary bus line 68 ( ticket 6,50 baht ) used to be green – white.
The passangers of green-white buses have to jump on the bus. The drivers stop only for several seconds at the bus stops. Will the repainted bus change a bad reputation ? I doubt it. Definitely the orange bus is not for old people 🙂
By the way, if you feel young the line #68 is between Bang Pa Kaew and Bang Lamphu.
If you like tuk tuk’s, you should take a joyride by bajaj in Jakarta. The entire range of city’s new experiences is gauranteed. Just be ready ! The seat is less comfortable than in Thailand, the visibility very limited and the car exhaust depressing.
A hot March noon. The last school day before long summer holidays in Thailand.
I visit Chatuchak Market regularly. The world’s largest market offers many delicacies. The food is always fresh and incredibly cheap.
