I spent a month in Laos last year (mainly in Vang Vieng and Luang Prabang).
Cycled north of Laos
Wicked country only been a few places but will help in any way i can
travelling, acccomodation, way around, money, chilling out
I made the trip from Pai in Northern Thailand to Luang Prabang via Van, and the Slow Boat up-river. Although the experience was beautiful in it's scenery going up river, some of the other legs of the journey can be a bit annoying, uncomfortable to some older travellers wanting to take the "Scenic route". I definitely think the "The road less travelled" in this case should be the 35 year olds and under. For as long as this route has been made available, it seems a pity that the operators of the different legs have not made it easier, more comfortable, and more accommodating to more seasoned travellers by re-investing some of their capital into an enterprise that could be made easier without effecting the overall cost of the journey.
I travel to Laos a few times a year and love the place. Can guide you through the country without any problem. Not really sure about the border though
I have travelled into, all over and out of Laos overland. I have been to:
2-day slowboat trip on the Mekong from Chiang Rai
Si Phan Don (Don Khong and Don Det)
overland into Cambodia
