Laos Journal Entries

Andrew on the dodgy boat that took us to Don DetWe entered Laos from Cambodia, threw our bikes in a small boat and headed straight for the Don Det islands in the Mekong for a few days of relaxing.

Once we’d recovered from the challenging roads in Cambodia we carried on north, cycling to waterfalls, coffee plantations and over the high mountains between Vientiane and Luang Prabang.

While we had some difficulties adjusting to the culture in Laos the first few days, by the end of our trip we wished we had more time to explore the country. Someday we’d love to go back and do an extensive trip through the little visited northern parts of Laos.

    Hi- thanks for your helpful website! We are planning to cycle your trail in Laos this year. October would suit our timetable best. Do you think it might be still rainy season? We have an option to go in Nov-Dec but it is a bit close to xmas for us even though it sounds more guaranteed good weather. Any advice?
