Live music and Mekong views
3 Yaek Pakpasak is packed as soon as the work day is over (and sometimes earlier than that) with locals wanting to unwind, drink beer with friends, eat spicy snacks, sing along with the live band and a catch a stunning sunset over the river from an elevated position.
Cindy Fan is a Canadian writer/photographer and author of So Many Miles, a website that chronicles the love of adventure, food and culture. After falling in love with sticky rice and Mekong sunsets, in 2011 she uprooted her life in Toronto to live la vida Laos. She’s travelled to over 40 countries and harbours a deep affection for Africa and Southeast Asia. In between jaunts around the world, she calls Laos and Vietnam home where you'll find her traipsing through rice paddies, standing beside broken-down buses and in villages laughing with the locals.
