Savannakhet (Savan) is one of the largest cities in Laos. It was held in high regard by the French during colonial time as a trading post with Thailand. The city has a certain charm and is best veiwed by walking the uncrowded streets or having coffee in the local cafes. Savan was our favourite city in Laos by far. The crumbling French architecture is beautiful, the people are friendly and the city is super relaxed. The sounds of petang (bochi ball) can be heard all over town. Getting lost in the streets or drinking a coconut on the Mekong were our favourite ways of enjoying Savan.
