Cruzando la frontera con Laos

Ya hemos cruzado la frontera y estamos en Laos. Ha sido largo e intenso pero ha merecido la pena. Un par de días en Chiang Mai, de paso por Chiang Rai, haciendo noche en Chiang Khong (pueblico del paso fronterizo) y, a la mañana siguiente, ya estábamos cogiendo el slowboat en Huay Xai (Laos) para navegar durante dos días por el río Mekong, haciendo noche en Pak Beng hasta llegar a Luang Prabang, antigua capital de Laos y patrimonio de la humanidad.

Por lo poco que hemos visto, Laos es más rural que Tailandia y con una vegetación que ni Jurassic Park! es maravilloso, y diciendo esto nos quedamos cortas. Aunque han tenido que pasar un par de días para darnos cuenta de eso ya que el paso fronterizo es territorio hostil.

En nuestro pensamiento romántico, cruzábamos la frontera en una pequeña barquita hasta llegar a la orilla de Laos, como se hacía antes, pero eso ahora sólo es para los locales. Así que a los viajeros nos hacen pasar por un enorme puente de cemento teniendo que pagar 3 medios de transporte. Te sablean el dinero hasta por respirar!! Lo tienen todo perfectamente montado para que pagues el doble por todo! Si te la pueden meter, te la meten, y sin vaselina. Usando la ancestral técnica de calentarte la cabeza a lo cerveza-beer-amigo, te absorben la paciencia hasta que acabas cediendo. Vamos, que por más alerta que vayas, te lo acabas comiendo con patatas. 

Sanguijuelas, chupa cuartos!!! Shut up and take my money!!!

Shut-up-and-take-my-money

Aunque no sólo estuvimos negras por la sensación de estafa, si no que también activamos nuestro nivel de alerta máxima para que nadie nos metiera droga en la mochila… jajajaj (esto por culpa de Frank de la jungla y de las pelis de Hollywood).

Además, ahora que nos habíamos acostumbrado a los bahts (moneda tailandesa), tenemos que pensar en kips (moneda de Laos), un lío… las mates no son nuestro fuerte, que somos de Arte (con un seis y un cuatro aquí tienes tu retrato jajaj).

De todas formas, todo esto se te pasa en cuanto te ves navegando por el Mekong. Ese río que tantas veces habíamos visto en los documentales. No hay palabras para describir esa sensación… de verdad, hay que vivirlo! Compartimos el río con elefantes, bueyes, aves y mariposas. Pueblos remotos, pescadores, niños disfrutando de un baño y mujeres lavando la ropa, en una barca propiedad de una familia Laosiana que vive en la parte de atrás.

En serio, es espectacular! Y para muestra, un porrón de fotos:

    Estoy plameando un viaje así en cuanto acabé la universidad el año que viene. Sois una motivación, chicas. Sin embargo tengo las dudas básicas todavía. Antes de nada, ¿dónde dormis? Porque por lo que veo en vuestras redes sociales soléis estar en sitios bonitos y no en albergues de mala muerte.
    Y otra cosa, ¿cómo cuanto dinero hay qué ahorrar para emprender un viaje asi?
    Gracias de antemano. Y mucha suerte y felicidad en el viaje!

      Hola Maria! Gracias por tu mensaje. La verdad que las fotos son bonitas pero eso no quiere decir que vayamos sobradas, en lo que a dinero se refiere. Nos hemos encontrado de todo por el camino..desde dormitorios con bonitas vistas a cuchitriles con chinches, pero nunca hemos pagado mas de 5 dolares por cabeza y eso es una excepción. La media de alojamiento son 3 dolares por cabeza y unos 2 dolares por cada comida. La verdad que el calculo de presupuesto es relativo en función de como quiera viajar uno , el pais y de las actividades a emprender. Entre alojamiento, comida y algún extra nos gastamos 10euros al día, aparte el transporte, que contra mas te muevas, mas gastas. Así que calcula unos 500 al mes teniendo en cuarenta que las zonas por las que viajamos son de precios asequibles.
      Te animamos a emprender un viaje así, la verdad que a pesar del poco presupuesto, podemos decir que nunca hemos sido tan ricas. A día de hoy, una de las mejores decisiones de nuestra vida.
      Un abrazo enorme
