Yes, there are still planes with propellers. This one flew us from Vientiane, Laos, to Luang Prabang, Laos. Vientiane is the capital of Laos. Luang Prabang is the ancient, royal capital of Laos. It is located on a peninsula between the Mekong and Khan Rivers. The city is recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, so buses are not permitted in this small city. We took a bus part way from the airport, then transferred to a Tuk Tuk (from the sound they make when the engine starts). A Tuk Tuk is like a high-powered 3-wheeled motorcycle with covered seating for several people.
We were in Vientiane, Laos, at the Patuxay Victory Gate Monument, when we saw several photographers with portable printers. They could take your picture with the Gate Monument in the background, then print it and sell it to you.
We took a boat ride on a river near Tonle Sap Lake. Many people live in huts built on bamboo rafts. One hut had a floating pig pen. Numerous people in small boats gathered at the edge of a floating community center.
