This week's travel film is a short motorbike bit somewhere in Laos. Does anyone know where in the country this is? I'm guessing southcentral - Tha Khaek way, but I don't really recognise the landscape at all.
Also, what the hell does the other guy have on the back of his bike?!
Middle of nowhere.

Interesting concept of packing light.... I'll strap a big backpack to the back of my bike, then strap a wheelie suitcase on top of the backpack, and bungee cord some lose clothing (?) on top of that, then I'm done.
Stuart, I have no idea where it is. I think Leonard is correct.
1. The song sucks.
2. The bike he is riding sucks more.
Light travellers they are not.

@Madmac, yes, it is a piece of garbage, tho I did like the music.
@Billytheliar - I've not done that road - wherever it is, looks like a fun ride.
Adding bad music to a video seems to be common with travellers. I'd rather just hear the bike and other location sounds.

Too many bands are trying too hard to be cool.

Arctic Monkeys are cool enough though.
I like the song, the video is great! beautiful landscape. Wish I knew where that was

Could be in Xieng Khouang province somewhere. Doesn't look like anywhere around Tha Khek that I can remember, the mountains seem very high.
The video could definitely have done without the Arctic Monkeys song... the Sheffield accent doesn't quite work with the landscape!

I never get the attraction to those little 125 bikes. For around town they're OK, but on the open road? They just suck.
