I was planning to take the route Bangkok, Vientiane, Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh City, Phnom Penh and back to Bangkok by air ( on average 80 USD type flights) However, The lack of cheap air tickets out of Vientiane restricted me to just two, namely Bangkok and Vientiane. This is probably because I wanted to travel North (Bangkok to Vientiane) first. How would you have done this trip on a 500 USD travel budget?
Hi, I intend to travel to Laos overland from Udon Thani, in Thailand. Any problems? I hold a UK passport. Do I need a visa in advance, and where in Bangkok could I get one? Or can I get my visa stamped at the border when I travel by bus from Udon Thani to Viantiane?
