    My Isaan and lao adventure - May/June 09 (+bike rental tips)



    http://www.travelistic.com/user/videos/openroad

    Hi all. Feel free to check out my video from last month's solo motorbiking journey (in 2 parts at the above link). It was my maiden voyage through Isaan and Laos and I absolutely loved it.

    Kevin Fairburn (Sydney, AUS)

    PS: The best bike I rented the whole trip was from Jim Barbush, owner of Remote Asia Travel just over the border from Nong Khai (+856 20238 5562 Vientiane Laos). Motorbike Rental is his specialty and he is pretty maticulous with the upkeep of his fleet of bikes. My XR250 was a very reliable and modern machine. Highly recommended.

    When in Udon Thani check out Lek Car and Bike rental. Hired a nice Honda Steed 400 for a bit of cruising down to Khon Khan and beyond.

    Hi kevin, great videos mate, I really enjoyed them.

    I am planning a similar trip in the new year, so I would like to ask a couple of quick questions: did you hire bikes in vietnam or purchase? Also did you try and cross any borders with the Vina motos?

    Thanks for the advice mate.

    Marty.
