Make sure you have your passport, for thais they just need ID card, and if you want to drive over make sure you have no red plates as your car will be refused, buses go every couple of hours so a wait is likely ,...More
Take the time and go out to the Friendship bridge and get your selfie taken there. A good tip, under the bridge there are vendors that sell food, fruits etc. Aaaand, you can get a digital postcard from there too (see photo).
I have been to this area many times visiting the wife's parents, but finally decided to stop at the bridge i have driven past a hundred times. A nice surprise, with great views and fast entry if you want to visit Loas.
One of only a few land crossing into Thailand where full immigration service is available, meaning you can get a thirty day Thai visa. Most land crossing give only 15 day visa. .cannot walk across bridge into either country, must take a bus, seventy baht?
The bridge is about 1km long, I didn't see anyone walking across, in fact there was very little activity just a car and a couple of trucks. I know there are buses from the main bus depot in town going a few times a day... More
The bridge is about 1km long, I didn't see anyone walking across, in fact there was very little activity just a car and a couple of trucks. I know there are buses from the main bus depot in town going a few times a day. There is a ferry going across from NP from just across the road from the markets only takes a few minutes not sure of times and cost might be an idea to google it.
