    That's a sleepy little crossing and they don't seem to get many foreigners there, but depending on where you're headed there's no reason you can't cross there.

    If I were to go that way again I'd get a visa in advance, as the visa desk on the Lao side isn't really staffed at this border crossing. Rather, on the rare occasion a foreigner shows up here they call the immigration official and eventually he shows up and takes care of you.

    The Thai side was a lot faster than the Lao side-

    Ah, you hold an ASEAN passport- lucky you, that saves you some hassles at the borders :)

    Have a great trip and don't forget to share some pictures with us!

    A few of us will be headed to Luang Prabang next weekend on road bikes, via Vientiane and Van Vieng.

    Maybe we'll cross paths!

    Happy Trails!

    Another thing to ask, as I just read the map, if I go in by Huay Kon so I take the right toward XAYABOURY, n izzt passable for my motard to go thru the dirt rd to LUANG PRABANG???
