Taxi from Udon to Laos border

Eaglesgift - a bit late for you, but for future reference the Udon taxi firm charges a flat 700 baht from Udon to the border. Our driver even stopped for 30 mins en route so we could eat at the excellent kaotiau restaurant half way to the border, no extra charge.

medical or travel insurance?

I live across the border in laos and looked at medical/travel insurance in detail a few years ago. The best deal I could find was a travel insurance package from Southern Cross out of NZ, which is renewable annually. It covers most things, including motorbikes, diving etc. You don't have to be from ...

Laos, next town outside Vienntienne ?

Astrid the nearest next town to Vientiane that has lots to offer a visitor is Vang Vieng, 150km and a 3.5 hour bus ride north. It is based around a river and surrounded by stunning karst mountains - plenty of caves and cool blue pools to cool off in, plenty of restaurants & bars. It is well known fo...

Shipping containers for sale?

I want to buy a shipping container and bring it over to Vientiane. They are very hard to come by in Vientiane, but thought one of you might know of someone selling them in Udon or Nong Khai. Any ideas? Thanks

Re: Honda motorbike dealer in Udon

SH-01 is the model of the bike. Its a step through scooter with large, wider, wheels instead of the usual smaller scooter wheels. But, Laphandon - not available in Thailand - thats good to know - thanks. I was thinking to import directly myself from Thailand to Laos because all bikes cost double her...

Honda motorbike dealer in Udon

Does anyone have an email address for a Honda motorbike dealer? I have googled it and can only find general Honda websites. Also, has anyone seen the Honda SH-01 scooters being ridden round Udon? - I can't remember seeing any in Thailand on my visits from Vientiane, although they are very popular in...

Re: Nong's Ribs - New Restaurant

Wish I'd read this string before coming from Vientiane and walking down to Nongs saturday night, and spending 2 days beforehand looking forward to a kilo of ribs! Maybe it should be taken off the map?

Re: Bus to Vientiane

After the AC minibus from Udon airport drops you at the bridge immigration, you can walk back 200m to the Lao bus station (Thai side still)and take a 55 baht bus to Vientiane every 20 minutes. How it works is that if you are delayed through immigration at either the Thai or Lao side, you just get on...

Re: bus trip through loas to viet nam

I did this last april. From Vientiane you get a comfy overnight bus to savannakhet, about $15 (don't take the local bus, they stop in every village and take much longer). Then another comfy bus can take you during the day from Savannakhet to Hue, stopping at the border for an hour to process your vi...

UK beer on draught?

I'm coming over the river for a weekend in Udon - are there any places with UK beer on tap? (I've seen John Smiths & Boddingtons in Bangkok so maybe, just maybe Udon?). Thanks
