Personal highlights

  1. Mekong River: one of the world's longest rivers crossing six countries
  2. Hiring a motorcycle: doing a private half-day-trip with a random driver
  3. Taking the ferry: crossing the local ferry instead of the touristic boat
  4. Silk Island: passing by this idyllic island with a silk farm and museum
  5. Locals: spending some quality time with local children and people
