Vientiane, Laos

Pasted Graphic 1 Arrived in Vientiane very early 25th and left the next evening.
Vientiane is supposedly an 18 hour bus trip from Kunming (see here) arriving about 8am but Sara arrived before 6am and was feeling quite sick, possibly something she had eaten.

It is 1421km by bus from Kunming in China

Sara caught a bus across the Mekong River into Thailand to Nong Khai (about 26 km from Vientiane) and then the train about 6pm to Bangkok which was about a 12 hour trip. It is about 630km from Nong Khai to Bangkok by road.
