    I am planning as trip as described in the Head line ( Chiang Mai-Chiang Khong -luang Prabang-Vientane - Udon) next month on my Honda dream.

    would like to have some useful hints for paperwork and if its up to date ok to cross the border with my honda dream and exit again after 2-3 weeks. Any info about border crossings , bad and good experience on the way is appreciated.

    best wishes Klaus

    Ban Huai Kon border crossing is the best of them all. Hardly any tourists at all. Just make all copies of documents before you go there.
    There is one shop that copy documents, but the service is bad and expensive.
    Have a nice trip.

    Does have a list of documents needed to be copied for both Thai and Laos side. Are 110cc allowed across. Is 30 days available on HK crossing and is it easy to get 30 days as of February 2015?
