Later this year we will be travelling to Sam Neua from Hanoi. I have read numerous forums and am not sure whether to catch some public minibuses or to hire a driver in Hanoi? Any ideas?
I'm interested in buying bulk green coffee beans and shipping them home, I was wondering if anyone knows about how much you can get green Laotian coffee beans by the pound for from the average farmer

Any recommendations please email <snip>
We are taking a private car from Vang Vieng to Phonsavan in June and will arrive mid afternoon. Is it possible to hire a driver to take to see some Jars that afternoon and then see more in the early morning before our middle of the day flight to Vientiane? I know a few sites are are fair drive away from Phonsavan, but my Mum REALLY wants to go.

My boyfriend and I are heading to Savannakhet 26th April and plan to head north. We have a fair idea of some activities we are keen on (tubing, trekking, white water rafting) but flexiable with this. Keen to meet other fellow travellers! ... Don't be discouraged that we are a couple, we're super easy going and enjoy meeting new people
