Hi all,
I recently did a trip round the Golden Triangle, renting an XR 250 in Chiang Mai and really enjoyed it, I am thinking of doing something similar
in Laos or Cambodia but can't decide which. I would be renting again, either in Vientiane or Phnom Phen. I don't mind a bit of off road but not like, three foot deep river crossings ! Any suggestions or advice would be appreciated.

Thanks, Gary.

my 2-cents...FWIW
IMHO, Laos is a much more scenic country than Cambodia...and I've seen much of Cambodia.

I'll add another 2 cents worth. I know nothing about the aspects of getting a bike around either country but if I was broken down in the middle of nowhere I'd feel far safer if that nowhere was Laos then if it were Cambodian. I still feel Cambodia has got a safety issue.
