Across The Friendship Bridge

Posted in Photography, Travel by Alvin on July 5, 2010

From Ayutthaya, I took a night train to Udon Thani, one of the provinces situated sensibly close to the friendship bridge. The inter-nation bus ride from Udon Thani to Vientiane costs 80baht, and 2 hours is all I need to get to the capital of Laos. Easy but the bus was sardine-packed with passengers, sacks of grain and corns filling up the aisle. Thankfully, no domestic fowls!

Bus alight at Talat Sao, the bustling morning market of the capital. It was a feat getting through the stuffed aisle, never did I expect a swarm of tuk-tuk drivers sprinting towards the bus way before it stops, having everyone to wade through the crowd.


I got myself a bike on the 2nd day and it was indeed confusing to cycle in the streets of Laos. Yes, right-side driving and I often pedaled into the wrong lanes.
