Road Conditions in Laos?
by Ken Hill
(Chiang Mai, Thailand)
I am a farang (New Zealand) 73 years of age, with a Thai partner. We wish to drive to Vientiane - and possibly on to Luang Prabang - in our Mazda BT-50 truck. The truck is farang owned but Thai registered.
Arriving in Laos (from Nong Khai) as two tourists, we just want to know about driving and road conditions. Frequency of fuel-filling stations (diesel) and anything you think might be of helpful guidance - including other websites re private car touring in Laos? What might you suggest as the best time of year for road-touring?
Would you foresee any difficulties for Visa Upon Arrival (New Zealand Passport & Thai Passport) plus vehicle documentation.
Very many thanks. Your time is appreciated.
