Minivan en route to Huay Xai from Chiang Mai. Scam number...unsure anymore. The ride is supposed to be 4hrs which turned into 6hrs as our driver wanted to be safe and didn't exceed 80kph. The real reason unfolds when we reach Chiang Khong (our port to cross into Laos) and are dropped at a guesthouse instead of the ferry pier...and no way were we …
... branch or give up and move on. Incredulously, Alex had managed to sustain mosquito bites to the sole of her foot which were causing her to hop and squirm regularly in an attempt to relieve the itching and discomfort! Returning to civilisation ourselves, albeit very dirty, sweaty and smelly (par for the course when trekking in the rainy season) we checked into our new guesthouse and made the most of the luxurious facilities.

We hopped on and soon we were on our merry way towards the Laos border. The bus was nice; a flat ride so we read and blogged, but also ...
... the same journey spent the entire time heaving their guts overboard. On the ride from Pai to our rafting put-in, Nathan and I remarked at the scenic rice-paddy-filled valleys while our guide grimaced from the floor of the truck bed. We've spent much of the trip joking about how our western stomachs can't handle local hygiene standards, but at least they hold up well to local transportation!
Basic, clean, cheap. Perfect for what we needed. A few nights stop over after the Gibbon Experience.
