    Hi Antoine
    going at a slow pace I might go VTE - Ban Pako via Thaduea Road to KM 45 then Ban Pako to Dansavan Resort (boat then to Long Ngum View) then to the Eco Lodge at Nam Lik, then to Vang Vieng then back down to Feung returning the same way to Vientiane. Should be easy on the scooter and allow a lot of time to see where you are and enjoy.

    Thx Jimoi for all the details. Where is Feung ?

    Do you think the road to go from Vte to Phonsavan is too difficult for such motorbike ?

    You itinerary is nice but i want to avoid the too touristic place like Vang Vieng ;)

    You have a Kolao and it's not something I'd ride up to Phonsavan this time of year from Paksan. The suggested route I gave is fairly off the main tourist runs and for Vang Vieng, it's a good place but you have to stay either out of town or in one of the more pricey hotels to avoid the evil backpackers. Feung is west of Hinhoup, the road is not completely finished but in good condition most of the way.
