A lazy day as we prepared to leave Laos for Bangkok. Had a final Amantaka breakfast of pancakes and crispy bacon outside by the pool and then took a quick walk into town to buy a thank-you card for the Amantaka staff and to visit the morning market one more time to buy some sticky rice in case we can’t find any in Canada. We bought 1kg for about 70 cents!

Back at Amantaka, we spent some time by our pool enjoying our last bit of sunbathing before the reality of a return to cold and snowy Calgary. We settled our bill, dropped off the staff thank-you card and headed to the airport. We were sad to leave. We really loved our stay and will miss the great staff we interacted with each day. 

We arrived at the tiny Luang Prabang airport and after a very efficient check-in and security screening process, our plane to Bangkok left early. We landed in Bangkok for the third time this trip and made our way to the Novotel airport hotel. This is a good hotel right at the airport. After having a few snacks in the business lounge, we went to our room and rested for an hour or so before heading down to enjoy a decent buffet dinner in the restaurant.

Tomorrow, it is back to setting an alarm clock to make sure we wake up for our flight to Hong Kong.
