8000 km on a click,part 7 final. Huay xai-Pak chong


Aug 4, 2009
How to get out of laos at huay xai with a bike ? quite easy.
1st. Get the passport stamp in the small street where all the packpakers arrived from.
2nd.Go to customs.Thats where there is the big ferry.Building on the left side down the hill.
3rd,Get the bike on the ferry.When i croseed there was a lady boy asking 500bt to cross. I told him i would deal with the boat guy and finally paid 50 000k+20bt.
In chiang kong,i first stopped at the customs then the immigration.
The rest of the trip was kind of brainless.

HI,thanks for the reply guys.Antoine,the only map i had was the gt rider one that i bought in pakse at the green discovery shop.It did help but i was relying more on the "sun" and the villagers.(i can speek a bit of lao).I didn't really had a goal so i didn't really care where i was heading.And ya ,i did had some problems after floading the bike.Its amazing the amount of water that went out of the exhaust when it finally start ! And after that ,the air filter,(which is paper btw),was ofcourse wet and collected so much dust that it clogged real bad.When i made it to Thakhek ,the bike could barely make 40km/h.No air ,running super rich.
The honda mechanic was really impress when i showed him the pictures !( and the lao lady who had just bought one was also convince that she had made a great buy....)
