    how easy is it to get a visa going into Laos?

    Getting a visa is really easy. Simply bring USD and purchase at the border crossings. How much it costs will very much depend on what country you are from. For example Aussies pay less than Amercians who pay (or at least were) less than Canadians. The Canadians were paying the most because the Canadian government said something that offended the Lao government. almost 8 years ago

    Where is the best internet access in Chiang Mai?

    Chiang Mai is somewhat of a tourist hub in northern Thailand - so internet access is not a problem. Everywhere has it, ranging from special internet cafe's to small hostels. They are all set up to cater for the international tourist so Skype will be already installed in almost every location. I've never had a problem dialing family or friends from Chiang Mai. My only suggestion is to shop around for the best rate :) almost 8 years ago

    Where is the best place to stay in Hanoi? Somewhere close to attractions and bars but away from Bia Hoi corner?

    It depends on your budget but each time I go to HN I stay at The Metropole. It's just near the lake and close to everything you can possibly need. almost 8 years ago

    Should I buy an international phone in the US or wait to buy a prepaid one in Thailand?

    I agree with Ingar. But remember to take your passport with you as you will need to show this when you purchase/register your Thai sim. about 8 years ago

    Taking the inner road in Vietnam

    Hi guys I did this trip just over 2 months ago. One word for it - AWESOME! I did it on a motorbike but if you wanted a truely 'local' experience then public transport (not what you'd call it though) is one option. For me, the motorbike was the only way to go - as long as you have prior riding experience. Vietnam is not the place to learn:) Yok Don (near the Cambodian border) is a fantastic national park, and from there you can follow the border road north (Road 14 from memory). There are so many villages to stop in at along the way. Nothing touristy - just pure local flavour! If you're game, there are a few places you can cross into Laos as you head north. Just be really nice to the Border Guards and they'll let you pop in for a few USD$. about 8 years ago

    What is the best way to get from Pangkor Laut to Kulching?

    Best to catch a bus or a train dow nto KL. Fro mthere get a cheap flight on JetStar or AirAsia and fly across to Kuching. There are ferries from Mersing (lower east coast) but I don't think they go all the way across the strait - just to the nearby islands. about 8 years ago
