Me and my hubby are travelling to Laos at the end of November. We are spending a couple of days in Vientiane and then we're heading north to check out the points of interest. We're looking at travel arrangements..we have nowhere booked after Vientaine but were hoping to call at Vang Vieng and LP..not interested in the tubing just wanting to see the country. We were hoping to get as far north as the Bokeo nature reserve for the gibbon experience but we only have a fortnight and didn't know if this was worth risking intermittent flights or if it was drivable??We're happy to use any form of transport, including motorbikes, but would like to hear from anyone with previous experience of the public transport, flights or rentals that are recommended/avoided..
Would be happy to try anything but have a bit of a dicky back so not sure about something that'll cripple me for the rest of the trip!
Any advice would be hugely appreciated
