October 25, 2016 (Luang Prabang departure day)

Click photos to enlarge:

Early in the morning, I biked around again and took some photos of the Royal Palace Museum since it was too hot when I first went there on the first day for me to set up a good picture. The photo with the white fence is one of the entrances to climb up Mount Phousi (which I did not do).

I biked to the UXO Lao Visitors Centre after. It’s a small museum and office devoted to unexploded ordnance in Laos. There’s a lot of unexploded ordnance left over from the Vietnam War.

I got there a few minutes before the mini museum opened, so I biked outside and grabbed a sausage from a roadside grill before heading back.

Here are a few last shots of Luang Prabang I took biking around this day before and after the UXO Centre.

Here’s some I snapped from the van on the way to the airport.

I flew out of Luang Prabang in the afternoon. Did not opt to take the long bus ride to Chiang Rai to return to Thailand anymore. Luang Prabang’s airport was small, so the airplanes were very close to the windows. I was able to take a lot of clear photos of aircraft.

Since I took Air Asia, a budget airline, the plane landed at Don Mueang International Airport in Bangkok instead of the swankier Suvarnabhumi Airport. It took so long to get a car from this airport and the traffic was bad. There’s no subway like the airport I landed in on my first day. So I just got a pizza takeout from Gallery Pizza for dinner. It’s an art gallery that also makes and delivers fine pizza.
