I want to travel from Hanoi to Southern Laos. Has anyone done this and which border crossing did you use.

Is it better to do the travelling in Vietnam rather than Laos crossing somewhere further South like Bo Y? Has anyone done the trip from Hanoi to Vientiane? Which would you suggest is the better oute to take?

Any suggestions would be great!

There are multiple places to cross at -- are you interested in breaking the journey in Vietnam at all or just ant to get to southern Laos? Also, where in southern Laos as that will affect which border crossing works well.

The visa and border crossing FAQ covers the crossings in some detail...

Hi somtam

Thank you for your response. I have looked in to this firther now and ahve decided to go to Hue and Hoi An and then head to Laos from Hoi An. Our first stop in Laos will be Attapeu. I think the best crossing is going to be Bo Y. Do you know the best way to get to crossing from Bo Y? Thanks
