We are looking at traveling in Laos later this year. We prefer basic travel that gets us amongst the locals. Last year we did an intrepid tour of Vietnam. I can't find anything that just covers Laos North to South or vice versa. What is the best way to see Laos? There are a few places we have highlighted as must see including the tree top adventure in Pakse. We are happy within any mode of transport including cycling. Any suggestions would be great.
