    Apologies for the blatant plug, but………..the new GT Rider Laos guide map is out for all you Lao bikers & adventurers.

    This 3rd edition of the Lao map is again laminated, & has 5 new "city" maps
    1. Tha Khek
    2. Savannakhet
    3. Pakse
    4. Xayaboury
    5. Muang Ngoi Gao
    Plus heaps more fine detail - many roads GPS-ed properly with scores of new correct village names & more accurate kms.
    The map's also an extra 11 cms longer, to accommodate the new city maps, but still folds up to the same standard comfy size.

    Hey, it is your site; plug away! Now, how about a laminated Mae Hong Son Loop map??

    The next MHS loop map will be laminated. When that comes out depends on high season sales 2005/2006.
    The earliest could be mid-late Jan if things go well, but I aint that optimistic right now.
    How was the USofA, or are you still there?

    I'm back. The US sucks! The shopping is good though. Picked up lots of goodies for the Suzuki, which I am presently installing. Got to get her ready for the New Years Lao run!

    Why we can't buy your maps in Bangkok ?

    No maps for sale in Bkk because no distributor in Bkk.
    Asia Books are only really interested in their own maps that they distribute. Also for me
    the quantity that they sell is miniscule compared to what has been sold in North Thailand & Laos.
    I’m sure it is not a problem for you to buy a Laos map in Vte as you go in, or a MHS map in Cnx, where you need it.

You're just jealous you're not a New Zealander..haha. :) But thanks for the motivation...we know it's going to be mighty hard. Looking forward to putting up a trip report when we get back.

    Sorry, none for sale in Chiang Rai. Try Chiang Khong / Opium Museum at Golden Triangle.

    DavidFL Administrator Staff Member

    Sorry no updated version yet. Also no website updates, but just read the Lao Road & Trip Reports & you might pick up the odd update tip.
