in Laos, Cambodia and Thailand

Getting from one place to another in SE Asia offers the traveler a number of different and colorful options: besides flying (an option we only used a few times, owing to cost), there are of course buses, trains, and boats and—for shorter trips—things like rikshaws, tuk-tuks, motos, and the like.

Shown here are a handful of those means of transport, along with some of the people doing the transporting as well...

THAT'S ONE BIG BIKE!

We saw this cute little boy (at the Roluos Group of ruins at Angkor), and couldn't resist snapping a shot of him:

And finally, a tuk-tuk driver in Chiang Mai, taking a rest from the daily grind...
