At the border to Thailand, a truck waiting for the custom clearance
The road to W from Pakse is leading to Thailand. The bus station was just across Mekong river by ferry boat. But after the new bridge was open, many communal trucks leave from a new market next to the bridge. The buses/trucks stop 1 km before the border and people either walk or take a moto to the border from there.


After crossing the border, everything is different. The road is perfect and the communal trucks are comfortable. The conductors never try to rip us off.
