Thakhek, Laos: You can take a bus or two to get to the Khong Lor cave but why bother when you can go by motor bike! I went on a 3 day motor bike loop to Khong Lor, a 7.5 km long cave. Zoom past chickens, buffalo and dogs. Slip and slide through muddy, unpaved roads. Race to find an open guest house before the nightly thunderstorms. Drink the local Lao Lao (homemade whisky) Even though our bike broke twice, it was one of the most memorable experiences of my trip.
