Hi all. I am considering (roughly) this route in a few months (before rainy season): Chiang Mai > Nam Pat (via Queen Sirikit Dam)>Nong Khai (along the border) > Vientiane > Luang Prabang > (Maybe Plain of Jars) > Chiang Khong > Chiang Mai. Im familiar enough with the Thai side, but no idea of the best route or must-see's on the Laos side. Will be a solo ride. Riding Dtracker 250cc / vee rubber dual sports tires. I dont mind some rougher roads/trails, but don't really want anything OTT dirt-wise, as i am riding solo and do not know Laos well enough. I love border routes rather than long stretches, but also want to feel safe too. Any suggestions or tips etc? Thank a lot!
