Hi, I will be crossing into Laos in about 2 days on the Tha Li / Namhueng bridge. I've got all my paperwork in order. Can anyone please advise on places to stay and eat in the Namhueng area (or just outside of it)? I'd like to overnight in that vicinity for 1 night. Also, any suggested routes from Namhueng to downtown Vientiane? I'll have my GPS with me loaded with Laos maps, but just wondering if anyone has any first-hand experience with the route. Thanks much!
