a good stopover between Luang Prabang and Plain of jars?

Posted by QWE on 27/4/2013 at 23:36

Hi, I will be going from Luang Prabang to Plain of jars.

1. Could you please suggest a good stopover/s that would split the long trip?

2. If I want to go to Vientiane afterwards, do I have to go half the way back to LP or can I go from Phonsavan?

3. Can I get to the Plain from town on a bicycle? If yes, are there bike rentals in town?

Thank you guys for yr answers:-)

There is a small town between LP and Phonsavan called Phou Khoun, at the intersection of Highway 7 and 13. Phou Khoun is a very basic town. I believe that there is at least one guesthouse there, but seem to recall from previous discussions on this forum that it's not too good.

OK - just did a search, and there was some discussion >herehere
