motorbike trip route help

Posted by craigyyz on 28/4/2016 at 18:35

Hi, I found a place in Luang Namtha that rents motorbikes with a drop off option in either Luang Prabang or VTE. I plan on riding for about 12 days and I'd appreciate help with an itinerary and whether I should go all the way to VTE or stop in LP. I plan on a very modest pace and would like to ride about 3-5 hours daily (in the morning). Looking at the map I'm thinking of this route:

Luang Namtha - Oudam Xay - Nong Kiew - east from NK looping around highway 1C to Phonsavan - Phou Khoun - Luang Prabang. If I took this route I would plan to get to LP by about day 8 or 9 and then have 3 days or so to do day trips in the LP area.

Alternatively I could stretch out my route to VTE, though it is not really on my list.

One other consideration is that from either LP or VTE I will be exiting Laos and heading to either Siem Reap or PP (by air). Not sure if I will have better options for this in VTE?

Looking for suggestions/ideas....thanks
