Flew up to Savannakhet Monday the 19th. Laos Airlines with a stop in Pakse on route.Flight on time, comfortable and with a beer Laos and sandwich offered. Cost 4.5K baht.Immigration at airport a breeze. 1500 for the visa. 10 mins through immigration,Tuk Tuk to Vivanouk guesthouse 100 baht. The French owner had overbooked. He paid me back in USD and walked me to neighboring guesthouse Savan Cafe. 800 per night.Nice modern place. Next to the Night Market. This is the only area with anything going on. Plenty of places to eat and have some beer. A couple of bars/cafes with live music. In no hurry do I try to chill and enjoy the quiet nice city.Next morning in no rush arrived at the Consulate 10am. I was the only person there.Delivered the paperwork. Most of us know what it is already. Lunch, nap and out.for dinner at Lins Cafe at the night market. Nice place Laos and European food.Next day at 2.30pm picked up Passport and back over to Thailand. 200 baht from Night Market.Wait and onto the bridge. Freedom Bridge 2.We decided to stay in Mukdahan in Ploy Palace. Nice old hotel. Great staff. Went out in a wet evening. If you stay around Ploy Palace many options to eat. I would advise taking a right and a left after Amazon Coffee where there are a strip of places to eat.10.30 the next day fly drive from Ploy Palace to Ubon and back to DMK. Easy, hassle free.
