Hi All, Initially we were planning on getting from Loei to Luang Prabang in one day. But since then Moto Rex has kindly offered some GPS tracks as well as Jim saying there is a lot to see around this area. We are now considering changing the plan a little bit. Advice / tips / tracks and recommendations welcome. There are three of us confirmed (may be one more) and another tentative joining at Pak Lay.. Then head up to Xaignabouli. (many different spellings for this town). Right now we are considering staying here one night and spend the rest of the first afternoon exploring the area until dusk and Beer Lao time.. Next day head to Luang Prabang along the 4a with lunch in Hong Sa then the 4b to Luang Prabang. How does the above sound? Does any one have any recommendations on accommodation. Cheap and cheerful is fine, but if there is something nice out there for a little bit more that would be great as it is a holiday after all Thanks in advance Brian PS The rest of the trip we will make our way over towards Vietnam and the Pathet Lao caves with stops in Nong Khiew, Vieng Thong, Phonsavan and around the area to the south making our way back to Vientiane.. Where safe and possible riding as much dirt as possible with the Gecko Map and GT-Rider maps as references and any tracks we have been provided with.
