Photographer's Note

At first sight Vang Vieng seems to be either completely tourism orientated or living the farmer's life. However there is a spirituality as well. There are three Wats, Buddhist monasteries, architectural nothing very special, but here everything - the buildings, the sculptures etc - is build by the monks itself. The reason: only very little money is donated, as the population is not rich, which just covers the coat of the raw material like cement, sand etc.
