I'll be riding my 250cc Suzuki Djebel from Siem Reap to Vientiane, in order to meet a friend there for a 4-week northern Laos adventure. The point of traveling from here to Vientiane is not adventure but rather to get myself and the bike there safely and on time. I have hardly any experience riding in Thailand and I'll be traveling alone. Thus I am looking for a reliable, time-efficient route, preferable with border crossings that don't give me a lot of trouble. Ideally I would be issued a 4-week entry permit for the bike (which is registered in Cambodia) at the Thai-Lao border. I have applied for a Lao-visa already here in Siem Reap, in order to not rely on visa on arrival. Tentatively I am planning on crossing into Thailand from Cambodia near Anlong Veng. From there I would proceed to the Nakhon Phanom crossing with Laos. This leaves me with the Bun Kan/Pakxan crossing as a backup if for some reason I fail to cross at Nakon Phanom. Is this a good plan?
