I am planning on cycling from Hanoi to Dien Bien Phu and then crossing the border at Tay Trang into Laos then cycling through to Vientiane to cross into Thailand.
How is the border at Tay Trang and can i get visa on arrival, am i allowed to cross on a bicyle or do you have to get a bus across. I will be doing this in February next year, during the Lunar festival in Vietnam is the border always open or does it shutdown for holidays etc as its not a main crossing point ?
Any help would be greatly appreciated
Thank you all in advance
