    We are currently in Siem Reap, Cambodia and own a Minsk (with vietnamese plates and papers) and a dirt bike (with cambodian plates no papers). We are planning on heading across the border into Laos at Dong Kralor then spend 1 month in Lao before crossing into Thailand on the same bikes (cross at either the Nong Khai friendship bridge or at Chaing Khong/Huay Xai in the north)
    Firstly, is this possible as one of the bikes has no papers? Also, we have heard stories on various forums about having to get insurance at the borrder and officials only allowing a 1 week visa for Laos plus you need paperwork for them to stamp....Very confused - has anyone out there attempted this and if so what were the conditions?
    Thanks! any advice appreciated!
