South Laos in July
6th April, 2013
After visiting Angkor I will fly to Pakse and would like to visit the south and Boloven by my own. I have several questions :
Is it possible to get a visa at Pakse airport ?
What about the weather in July in this part of the country ? Does it frequently rain ? or is it a downpour time to time ?
I would like to rent a motorbike and visit myself. Do I need an international licence ? are the road pretty good even
when it is wet ?
Thank you for all your comments.

Visa on arrival at Pakse airport yes
July is mid rainy season, but actual weather is unpredictable. Could rain cats and dogs, could be sunny and hot. Rains tend to arrive late-day in hard short bursts, but no guarantees. The river will be running high and waterfalls at their peak.
Technically you need an IDP to rent/ride a motorbike, but no one checks. I've rented plenty of times in Laos and never asked to show a license. When cops have stopped me they asked to see my passport. Just don't crash.
