Provincial officials in Salavan are preparing to add infrastructure to make an iconic cave tourist friendly. Authorities in the southern Laos province say the cave of Tham Kaleang will be ready to welcome its first visitors by the start of the traditional Lao New Year next April.
The Ministry of Public Works in Laos says it would like three more Mekong River bridges to Thailand. If the structures are all built, this will take the number of Lao-Thai Friendship bridges spanning their common river border to seven.
