Hello everyone, first time post, long time reader. Looking for a little expertise on a crazy idea I have had brewing. I am looking to do some motorcycle riding through Laos and mostly along the Ho Chi Minh trail. I am curious what the rules and possibility are of bringing medium sized remnants or pieces of US aircraft parts back to the US. Mainly offering money to the locals for neat stuff I would like to bring back for small local aviation museums or just for display. I would really like some feedback on the possibilities, I plan on coming over in March. Thanks in advance.

Hey Stumpy, Do you have any links or info on who I could inquire with. I'm not looking for any kinds of old weapons or stuff like that. Maybe a small aircraft panel or the like. I'm curious about the feasibility of boxing it up, dropping it off at a shipper in Vientiane and sending it back. Thanks !

The locals will probably sell the stuff to you but you will not be able to get it out of the country. You would need to approach the appropriate Lao Govt department for information regarding this.

vacreative posted Cars in Vientiane on the Laos forum:
Hi All Do most people buy 4x4 cars in Vientiane? My family and I are moving over in July 2015 and I want to be able to drive around the country. Would it make most sense to get a smaller family car for everyday use and rent 4x4 for the trips out of town? I am trying to source good websites for car sales by car dealers preferably. Any advice would be great! Thanks!

I am moving to Vientiane in Aug 2015 and am keen to rent a boat on the Mekong. I have a boat licence from Singapore and am confident with small speed boats. Does anyone know where I can rent a boat from (self-drive)?

A reader commented on the Expat Report Review of Vientiane International School in Vientiane, Laos
Review-of-Vientiane International School
What advice would you give to someone considering enrolling their child in this school?
Don't enrol. The school is too expensive for what it offers. (Continue)

Thailand is dangerous. It is no place for a child in a boarding house. So many children are raped and then killed to silence them. It astounds me that parents could have such little regard for their children.

I am curious why so many parents of VIS students are looking for tutors elsewhere, particularly in Math. Is there a reason for this?

Hi everybody, I am planning to move to Laos with my family soon. I want to purchase a car, but not sure what would be the best way as my budget is quite limited. Is it possible to buy a decent second hand car there (without searching for too long)? Is it possinle to transport a second hand car from abroad and get it registered in Laos? Thanks in advance!

Not to Hijack post. BUT :) Here in the USA we drive on both sides of the road.What a waste to just drive on one side. BUT we drive from the left side of vehicle VS in LOS they drive from the right side of vehicle. In both the driver is closest to the centerline.But as is the case in some countries The rules of the road are merely annoying suggestions. SORRY,bored and just couldn't stop myself. :)

We are going to set-up a business, with HQ in Luang Prabang. Can anyone recommend an agency to assist?
AlexUli replied most recently with:
Thanks - in fact I'm searching for a legal firm. But lawyers, based in Vientiane don't seem to be keen on stepping on ground in Luang Prabang?!
stumpy replied most recently with:
I suggest you search for a legal firm who specializes in this. The better legal firms are in Vientiane especially the English speaking ones. They will guide you through the process [ for a price] but this will be much better than trying to deal with govt officialdom in Laos by yourself.
