  • The border crossing is very fast and fluid. Complete a Lao immigration d, take a bus and hop it is. However this is not beautiful.

  • good place for a visa run close to udon airport many taxis will help you across and back but bus is cheaper but more lines 
  • Of course very convenient and fast crossing of the border of the two countries. The Mekong on a big way is the natural border of the two countries. Always stop in Nonghae and back and forth. Who is not in a hurry, live in this wonderful border town, you won't regret it. From Nonghaja six miles, paid 50 butt there and back. The transition itself is straightforward. Free from 8 am to 4:00 pm, 5 butt with just Laos side of the stands. Well, if sooner or later you will need to pay within 55 baht. I recommend all of these taxes to pay in piles, they are there to convert so that it is cheaper to pay in piles than in Bahts. If you save or you not so urgent the on the right side of the border there is a bus to Vientiane TRC 6000, air-conditioned, comfortable, goes to bass station. If back then really cheaper to go to Vientiane-Nong Khai bus station 17000 for TRC is two dollars, it's cheaper than a complaint. Of course different is woefully two countries. Just one look at the two sides of the river Lao party, neglected, faded dusty neuhozhennym Bank and Thai, green with pretty neat landing, immediately understand the immortal words of Professor Preobrazhensky-klozetah isn't the problem, the problem is in their heads. One Earth, one climate, one faith, different, and here we are looking for zarytuju dog! But the transition easy.
