    Gday brian_bkk, so after this bike trip to Laos would you go back again?

    Thanks for vid and photos, and taking the time to post them.

    Cheers Moto-Rex.

    Is photo taken at Vang Vieng?

    Not 100% sure but to me this looks like the new bridge in Vang Vieng and, if that is true, the picture is either taken at the Thavisouk Resort or at the brand new "Villa Vang Vieng Riverside" which is located at the road leading to the bridge which incidentally is a toll bridge. In the "good old times" before the bridge was built there was a bamboo bridge for bikes and larger vehicles like cars and tek-teks had to drive through the river which was only possible during the dry season.

    yep.. it is the toll bridge.. the resort is still being built. The bridge was there 5 years ago when I last visited. looks like there are some pedestrian bridges across the river further down now..

    Hi Rex,

    I sure would go again.. this is my 3rd trip top Laos this year :)

    Probably get a dirt or enduro bike next time so we can take some dirt roads rather than the highway.. Plus the highways seem to be in a constant state of flux.. depending on the season and who is digging up what etc..

    Vang Vieng.. very nice town.. Just a shame about all the drunken tubers acting like idiots from 5 onwards.. Don't get my wrong.. I get hammered too.. but they just looked like fools unable to stand up straight and walk down the road.. Banging in side the vehicles bringing them back to town and walking around half naked with no respect for the culture.. Sure the locals are use to it here.. but... still not right.

    Thanks Brian. Great pics and vid. Rode up the 13 a couple of years ago on a rented XR 250. Really enjoyed it and bike was perfectly suited for the inconsisencies in road surface.
