Itâ€™s very straightforward to cross the Lao-Thai border from Vientiane to Nong Khai
. Thereâ€™re few options, for example I took a minivan from Thai embassy where I had gone to pick up my visa to Lao immigration point (50 baht) and then from there I continued by a border-crossing minibus to Thai immigration point (20 baht). Once in Thailand I walked all the way to the town centre with Garry, an American veteran, whom I met in back in Vientiane and spent some time with himâ€¦In Nong Khai, I stayed in Mut Mee Guesthouse which was recommended by my Argentinean friend Luciana. It was very nice and comfortable place, with a dorm bed for 100 baht, and very relaxing garden with hammocksâ€¦.thatâ€™s why I spent 3 nights there despite the fact thereâ€™s not much to do in Nong Khai. I didnâ€™t mind to read a book in a hammock all the long or cycle to a Sculpture Park with unusual Buddha statues. One of the reasons why I extended my stay in Nong Khai was that I was waiting for my old friends Gayle and John who were at the beginning of their new trip - to cycle through Laos to Chinaâ€¦.and Nong Khai was also on their wayâ€¦..
