    This very interesting story is on the official Vietnam Tourism website. It suggests that a number of international bus routes are to be opened between Vietnam and Laos.

    The specific routes are:

    Kon Tum – Vientiane (already open)
    Kon Tum – Champasak (already open)
    Kon Tum – Attapue (already open)
    Dien Bien Phu – Udomxai
    Dien Bien Phu - Luang Prabang
    Ha Tinh – Khammuon
    Gia Lai – Champasak
    Quang Binh – Vientiane
    Dak Lak – Vientiane
    Dak Lak – Champasak

    While there's no information on if all these borders will be open for foreign tourists, it nevertheless sounds very promising -- especially the Dien Bien Phu crossing!
