I’m going to Laos in mid-Feb for 30 days!
I plan to start with the north, the main places I want to visit:
Huay Xai - "The Gibbon Experience"
Luang Nam Tha
(And later on – I plan to go towards Vang Vieng, Vientiane and south.)
My connection flight is via Bangkok. Does it make sense to take a flight from BKK to Luang Prabang and start my journey from there, including take a boat to Huay Xai? or do you think it’s better to take a domestic flight from BKK to the north of Thailand and then cross the border to Huay Xai, and start my Laos adventure from here?
I don’t really plan to travel in Thailand, it’s only a connection point in this trip, so my considerations are about time, cost and ease of arrival.
