Leaving Laos – in the most complicated way

Posted from Mueang Nong Khai, Nong Khai, Laos. Vientiane – Nong Khai – Udon Thani While most people only visit Vientiane to do visa runs, my visit was for the sole purpose of getting a visa at the Thai consulate. So, in a way, I suppose I’m not far off the mark. Flying into Thailand […]
