3 days ago I tried to enter Laos via Bung Kahn. It was a nice ride down there and at the Thai Customs I didn't have any problems at all. I paid 100 Baht Fee for the procedure, then I went to the Immigration Officer and after checking all documents he said, it was impossible to let me cross the border at Bung Kahn, because I didn't have a Lao's Visa. I was a little bit confused, but still tried to argue with him, but he just wouldn't stamp my passport and refered me to Nong Khai. I still tried to find somebody, who could make this passage possible, but I wasn;t lucky. Also I asked around in Bung Kahn, if somebody could get me a Laos Visa - nothing! So I gave up and tried Nong Khai. The Thai side was not a problem at all. On the Laos side I was supposed to meet the person in Room Number 5, but nobody was there. I found a lady, that kindly told me, it was not possible for any vehicle from Thailand to enter the country. So back to the Thai side and cancel my departure. The astonished Immigration Officer aked me if I realy wanted to go to Laos. Well yes, I replied. So he went with me on my bike to the Laos side to see the big Boss there, Boualiphanh Temmelath. But even the Thai Officer couldn't impress him, I realy must thank the Thai side for so much support. He told me it was possible for a caravan of min. three bikes. I just couldn't get in, no matter how hard we tried. Well, I don't know if this message is helpful to anyone, but one thing's for sure now; THEY DO ISSUE VISA ON ARRIVAL IN PAXXAN OPPOSITE FROM BUNG KAHN. JUST BE AWARE OF THIS IMMIGRATION OFFICER ON THE THAI SIDE.
