Getting to know Phongsali

Phnongsali province is the least reachable of all it is situated near the Nam Ou River and Chinese border. The province has preserved strong links with China compared to the rest of the country and tourists are rewarded with a unique and interesting region, rich with ethnic tribes, descendants, and villagers from old Chinese traders from Yunnan.

Hiking to the minority villages is the main attraction offered in Phongsali, although there are some tourists that are just happy to meander along the cobbled backstreets of the charming town center while enjoying the seclusion offered by the location and the cool breeze.
