Some photos of the Khone Phapheng waterfall, the largest waterfall in Southeast Asia:














It's how the waterfall looks like. I just be able to capture a small corner of it:


A small shelter providing soft drinks, souvenir, and rest area for tourists.

Downstream of the fall:

Then we moved inside the tourist are for lunch.






Very nice and well set up restaurant:


All cooking stuff were arranged pretty neat. Notice the clock, that time we hadn't had lunch yet.


These are the tool they used to cook sticky rice - almost same as what we have in Vietnam:


Too hungry, we were focus on the lunch then forget to take food pix. All good food.
During luch, we called the other group, they are still struggling with the tire. We talked to the restaurant that they should prepare for the next coming group.

Good read, I too am surprised at the large bikes after the stories I heard in Vietnam of large Government taxes on big bikes. But a good variety of bikes but maybe hard to get tyres for in some areas. It seems the best move is to buy bike in Vietnam then ride to other countries as it seems hard to ride into Vietnam.

Hey, calm down. Buy a ticket to Laos, it's cheaper than killing a person .

Thanks.
Tax is still. And hobby is still as well.
How do you learn Vietnamese biker's thinking on that?! We'd like to ride out of Vietnam, not inside,

During we having lunch near the waterfall, the other team, just around 30-40km away still playing with the tire.

My friend got the bike from middle of nowhere to this area by a passing by truck:



And it was the time for the pain ass:


Wazz up?:


Looked like they were chasing a mouse...


Dang.. That's a tire job!!!...




Oh hell, that's the tube!!!!




So,... What's gonna be next!?

Nice report.

I was in Cambodia last year but didn't get up to the border with Laos, that part of the world holds a lot of intrigue for me. More pics of Laos food!

I learned about the taxes talking to riders in Vietnam when I was there the second time.I plan on going back in 2015 but I want to ride all through S E Asia, but riding into Vietnam seems hard because of Government rules.
The area you are in now is somewhere I have yet to see.

Cambodia and Laos, there are lots of thing to discover. However, for riding purposes, Laos seem to be the better place. As there are less traffic, more mountains...
I have plan to ride up north of Laos, there are all highlands, that's lots of fun, for sure.

Oh yeah, Vietnam part seems to be the hardest part among others in this area.
Let's see next couple of year, when the demand growing.
