I didn’t plan this two week Laos travel itinerary before I went. It happened by mistake. I was about to overstay my third visa extension in Vietnam while completing my epic Vietnam motorbike route, and that apparently wasn’t a good idea.
I crossed the border from Vietnam to Laos taking an overnight bus from Hanoi to Vientiane. The whole 36-hour journey of it. Without any plans in Laos, I really wondered what this country might have in store.
I quickly planned out my Laos travel itinerary working north from Vientiane towards the China border. Here I’ll give you a breakdown of the key locations, and what to experience at each of them.
