The Amateur Traveler talks to Sam Oppenheim about travel to Laos.
Sam Visited Laos as part of a year spent traveling around the world when he traveled extensively in Asia.
Sam’s itinerary included the capital of Vientiane as well as Luang Prabang, trekking in the hill villages around Luang Namtha and cruising on the Mekong River near Nong Khiaw. Along the way, Sam photographed monks, children and little bottles of alcohol with snakes in them. Discover this beautiful country through Sam’s stories and through his lens.
