Driving from vientiane to Luang Prabang

Hello,

I am hoping to drive to Luang Prabang in 3 weeks but I only have a standard hyundai car, not a 4x4 or pick up. Has anyone been on the road recently? What is the road like? Would it be ok in a normal car? We are stopping in vang vieng both ways so can drive slowly!

Thanks

"There is a big gap between $0 and $250 , or are you always thinking in black and white ....

I realise that English is not your first language - however it isn't mine either. You said people do not earn 250 pd. You then commented on a difference between 0 and 250. I said that you expect the car and the petrol for free. I made no mention of people. As I stated to Graham, I am happy to drive you for $400 plus accommodation in LP. Interested?

"You are probably working in the tourist business in Laos ....?"

I don't actually though I glean that cramp has something to do with it.
