Hi, I started this thread a few days ago but it didn't come out right. I'm going into LAOS for a few weeks mainly for visa purposes.I live in Thailand. I was wondering if it was worth taking my bike.Are there any extra charges for bringing your bike into Laos. Would I have to change the bike to my own name,Thai reg. What about my Thai drivers license or do I need an international one. Do I need insurance. Basically how much more go in with a bike than a back pack. I would love to drive from Chiang Kong to the Chinese border. All advice appreciated.
