We were genuinely surprised by this lush, heavily forested country sitting quietly at the heart of the region just waiting to be discovered.

Bus Laos has some smart buses operating on major routes out. Laos by Motorcycle We got off at a rest area somewhere in the middle of Laos, happy to get a stretch, grab a bite to eat, and in general break the monotonous bus journey.

By the time we got to Laos, we were eight months or so into our RTW, which meant that we’ve seen our fair share of buses. John Le Carre's "The Honourable Schoolboy" is partially set in Laos. His version of Vientiane doesn't much resemble the current version at all, and only some of the story actually takes place in Laos, but it's a great book and a very thrilling thriller.
