We live in Khon Kaen in Isaan, Thailand, next Wednesday morning we will catch a minivan to Mukdaharn-Savannakhet, then a bus across Laos to Da Nang in VN. We (my Thai wife and myself) will have a look around the town and find a decent small bike to hire, then head off north finding places to stay along the way. We have a Wave 110 back home which is a little small but bulletproof and we ride two up a lot over the past 5 years, however, with the odd hill in VN, thought a 125 may be better, though our luggage will be minimal. The tour will likely be 2-3 weeks, as and when we feel the urge to travel, so any advice would be most welcome, places to go, places to avoid, places to stay, whatever. Good bike hire places in Da Nang? This is going to be fun............:lol: PS picking up my VN visa tomorrow 2500baht, will get 2 Laos visas, one per entry.
