So we are heading out of Laos tomorrow and I am sad to say that I haven’t found any vintage clothing in this country. In fact, other than a t-shirt I haven’t bought any clothing here at all.
Of course I am always looking – I do love to shop – but every time I find a dress or blouse I really like there are issues like it doesn’t come in a size big enough to fit me, it’s not made out of practical material (which usually means it’s really heavy or completely sheer), it’s too short, etc.
Just so you get an idea of what is available in Laos, here’s a small sampling of what you can find at the night market in Vientiane:
Of course there are also plenty of other things you can buy at the night market but I didn’t take too many photos of those things:
Our next stop is South Korea and I’m quite excited about it. However it will be sad to leave such a beautiful country.
South Korea isn’t on the backpacker trail, which is good in some ways but I sure will miss the easy availability of western food – who knows when I’ll be able to find cheese sandwiches and Mexican food again!
Until next time!
