24 January 2017 - Pakse to Ubon Ratchatani - 140 km - We said good by to the Mekong crossing the bridge at Pakse and headed for the border, 40 km away. We had the choice of putting up early and doing a short ride into the airport the next day, but opted for getting all the km's out of the way. 140 km was fine, 141 km would have been to much. The toughest hill on the ride was the hotel 4th floor room with no elevator!
Met a great chef along the way at Strong and Steak. Retired from Thai Airways catering, Chef Pongsak and his family are putting out some pretty fancy fare for 59 Baht a plate. Great lunch stop.
