Cycling in Laos – facts and figures

Between the 17 October 2017 and the 02 of December 2017 (47 days) I cycled 1,623 Km (1,008 miles) in Laos covering an average of 52 Km a day. The longest distance I cycled on a single day was 84 Km and the shortest 3 Km.

During that time I spent 642 euros. The average daily cost in Laos was 13.66 euros.

Eating out includes not only meals but any ready made food and in Laos huge amounts of delicious beer Lao were consumed whilst groceries are mainly buying ingredients to cook my own meals.

Communication covers the cost of SIM cards and postage to letters home and Transport are mainly ferries to cross the Mekong and a couple of buses.

Nearly half of my money went on accommodation so I decided to look at that heading in a bit more detail.
