Smooth journey from Vientiane to Pakse
Journey was good, we slept most of it, so not sure how good or dangerous the driving might have been. The bed are quite comfortable all considering. I would suggest to bring food, water and at least a towel to cover their sheets/pillows. Used the toilet a few hours after we left and was very clean. Would recommend it.
