Xieng Khuang & Hua Phan Provinces drinking and nightlife

Bar in Phonsavan

Barview

Try this simple shack for sunset beers over the rice-paddy fields. Locals gather here to play guitars and munch on barbecued meat.
Bar in Sam Neua

Nang Nok Bar

Sam Neua is not going to win any awards for its nightlife, but Nang Nok might be one of the only contenders. It's a thatched pavilion on the edge of town where young locals come to down big bottles of Beerlao.
