Hello to all the experts of the Golden Triangle
I am finally planning a motorcycle trip in northern Laos.
I would greatly appreciate your help regarding border crossings.
Is the border crossing near Nan, (huai khun) open for crossing from Laos?

thanks a lot

Make sure you can get VOA at Huay Kon


To be honest I don't think anything much has changed.
They're enforcing their own individual provinciial policies at all the border crossings from what I can gather.
At the FB1 Nong Khai / Vte they want you to pay 2,000 baht for a tour.
At Chiang Khong, the dodgy tourist police are back playing their games and asking for 2,000 - 1,000 baht, but settling for 500 baht if you are any good bargaining & keeping your cool.

Please let us know how you go so we can update the info.
Many thanks in advance & good luck.
