We met up with the German girls 10 minutes later, got our passports out, filled in our departure cards and walked through Thai customs. We then paid 25 Baht each (£1 in total for both of us) for a bus. We thought we’d have to take a long tail boat to cross the Mekong, but we discovered all the blogs ...
