1. I was wondering if there is a bus from Chiang Kong to Chiang Mai. I keep seeing information coming from Chiang Mai. Any information about it would help. Times/website/etc.
2. Also, does the border close coming from Laos and entering Thailand? I've read that the Laos side closes but I haven't been able to verify if the Thai does or if I need to let Laos know I am leaving. If so, can you tell me what time they close/open?
