    Hi, looking for advice getting from Vang Vieng to Na Hin. I hear Vientiane is a bore, but have no interest in plain of jars either. Due to my crappy Chinese bike I want to avoid the adventure route through Thatom, so either Vang Vieng to Na Hin via Vientiane, or Vang Vieng to Na Hin via Phonsavan-Vieng Thong. I am leaning on the later since it is the path less traveled, but might be able to save a day going through Vientiane...plus finding info is not the easiest for Laos. I also figure if neither route is really all that exciting I may prefer Vientiane due to accommodations and food options.

    Bonus, my Laos and Cambodia itinerary I drew up last night, I am open to all suggestions but am hoping to get through both countries fairly quickly with Xmas approaching, think this route lets me seer a good portion of the countries but wouldn't have a clue if I am missing any must see's. Cambodia was done quickly so I will research the destinations a bit more to see if they sound like places I want to see. Thanks!
