Photographer's Note

The first photos of the western guests of Laos.
I took this photo in Huay Xay, the first town after Thailand on my way to Luang Prabang.

Ban Houayxay (also known as Huay Xai, Houei Sai etc.) is the capital of the Lao province of Bokèo, on the border with Thailand.
The town lies on the Mekong river opposite Chiang Khong in Thailand being the northernmost border crossing between the two countries. The two are only connected via ferries. Houayxay is also the endpoint of national road no. 3 which connects China via the border at Boten in Yunnan province and Luang Namtha with Thailand. A bridge to Thailand is scheduled for completion in 2012.
