|If you’ve written a description for Tay Trang-Sop Hun Border (Vietnam-Laos) you’d like to share with the community, send it to [email protected] and we’ll post it right here in the directory.|
|The first desk you come to on the Vietnamese side will change money for you at an acceptable rate (although watch out for bills being skimmed off). You’ll want to have crisp USDs for your visa, which can be bought on arrival.|
|Expect a whole array of random charges on the Lao side. We paid LAK10,000 for processing, LAK20,000 for a stamping fee, LAK5,000 for a temperature check and a further USD2 for who knows what! If you question the immigration officers about it, they very quickly get annoyed.|
|If you’re not Vietnamese or Lao, you will no doubt hold the bus up. Try to have everything in order to move things along quickly.|
|As far as is visible, there are only toilets on the Vietnamese side of the border.|

(Admin) Daniel: Provided your documents for the visa are in order, I believe you can absolutely cross with motorbikes. Can anyone confirm having done this?
