Ok going in with a Thia registered bike. Do you have obtain permits before hand and what proccedures do you need to follow? I was reading the other post about Garnets, someone metioned something about Lao being a free travel area. But it seems to me seeing threads where guys were denied entry, Seems to me I read somewhere tht Asain had addressed these problems. For example a Thai drivers license is good in the other countriies as well. So what is the current status of taking your bike into Lao and Malayasia?
