The U.S. State Department is warning against travel here and prohibiting its employees from doing so. straitstimes.com/asia/se-asia/us-expands-tra…
Does that mean Obama's not coming here as planned in Setptember? I think not.
It says the new road is fine for travel: "The Embassy still permits its personnel traveling between Luang Prabang and Vang Vieng to travel on the “new road” west of Road 13, between Kasi and Luang Prabang, and along Road 13 from Kasi all the way south to Vientiane."
Are there public buses/tourist buses running this route?
Sueisme - yes there are buses running both routes, but more on the Rte 13 road.
Also, this type of incident on Rte 13 north is the first for about 10 years or more so its a bit of an overreaction from the US State Dept.Edited: 1:05 am, March 12, 2016
