I am currently in saigon and will be heading up to hanoi over the next two weeks. once I arrive in hanoi I have 2 weeks until my return flight to the uk. I am a 23 year old male but am wondering if I can go to loas chaing mai then on to the south of thailand or whether it just best to head to the islands.?
if laos is the best option is it easily accessible?????? what is the best form of transport and from where etc.
thanks for any help, Jake
from Hanoi you can get to Laos at Cau Treo/Namphao Border Crossing and head all the way the Vientiane, a grruelling 20 hours by bus.. about 38km.. From Vientiane you can cross over to Nongkai (Thailand) for your onward journey to Chiangmai. There are also alternative routes from Laos into Thailand's north.
I sent you a PM days ago, check your messages. Mike
Hi, i am also interest in getting abit more information on traveling from Hanoi to Laos to Chang Mai trying not to do the 2 day boat trip but still trying to include the tubing/kayaking in LB is this possible?
Is there an overnight bus from the southern thai border in Laos to Chang Mai?
I dont have any info on the transportation...but as a 23 year old male...tubing in Vang Vieng, Loas would be amazing!!
