Has anyone gone through the border crossing of n.e. Laos\n.w. Vietnam at Tay Trang lately? ie. since the large typhoon swept thru. n. Vietnam? We are hoping to do this route in the next couple of weeks. What are the road conditions like? Were the roads damaged by the typhoon? any landslides still blocking roads?
I understand that within Laos buses go from Udomxai to Muang Khua and then a smaller vehicle on to the border....? And from the border at Tay Trang there is transport to Dien Bien Phu and onwards by bus, in stages to SAPA.
Any info would be great, as we have to decide on which border post to enter Vietnam.
