    • Bus trip from Luang Prabang to Vietiane

      Luang Prabang Apr 9, 2014 at 8:58 PM

      How safe is the bus trip?
      We are going to do this trip around the end of May. I have read a lot of comments on this route and I am not sure how to rate it. The mud slides, the winding road and the steep drops, the break downs and delays are a little nerve wracking for someone who doesn't like mountain roads. I am also a little anxious about the aviation safety. Yes, I could stay home. But I just want to get the most recent traveller's information to access what to expect. From that I shall make a call to see this amazing country (from all accounts).

      Hot Air Ballooning

      Vang Vieng Feb 19, 2014 at 1:27 AM

      Hi All,
      Just wondering if anyone has any experience with booking hot air ballooning in Vang Vieng in advance.
      Would just like to secure a position as it is at the top of my to do list.

      Also, I have read that there are three different times for the rides (0600,0700 and 1600)... Does anyone have any suggestions as to what would be the best? Worried about possible smog in the morning/too hot in the afternoon.

      Thanks in advance!

      Hi All - I'll be landing in LP on 7 April, and am looking on making my way down to VV after a couple of days in LP. I've heard stories about the busses, and have limited time left on this leg of the trip, so was thinking about hiring a private car. I hear they go for around 100 USD. Worth it? Anyone interested in splitting during this time? Also, if anyone has any must-do, must-see things in LP or VV, please share!

      Vang Vieng Sep 28, 2011 at 8:01 AM

      Hi Everyone,

      Quick couple of questions if you had any thoughts / info;

      Myself and my GF are heading to SE Asia for 2 months in Decemeber & were thinking of going to Vang Vieng for New Year's Eve(possibly travelling from Bangkok on 30/12). We land in Bangkok on 27/12 so are thinking it might be good to get out of there for NYE as 5 nights might be too much.

      Wondering what the best way to plan for accommodation at that time is as it will no doubt be very busy and I don't want to get stuck in a bad place or have no place to stay ! Also - has anyone spent NYE in Vang Vieng, is it worth going for, crowds good, etc ? Any guesthouse recommendations, etc would be great

      Any help would be great, thanks !!

    • bus from Vientiane to Udon Thani

      Vientiane Jul 13, 2011 at 4:09 AM

      after visiting Luang Prabang we will return to Vientiane and the cheapest way to travel from Vientiane to Bangkok seems to be to take a bus from Vientiane to Udon Thani and then an AirAsia flight to Bangkok. we are in our mid-70's so prefer plane to long bus/traintrips.
      i remember reading somewhere that there is a direct bus from Vientiane to Udon Thani. Could any VT confirm this and what is the cost and does the same bus cross the border into Thailand to Udon Thani or do we have to change into a Thai bus at the border. approximately how long is the bustrip from Vientiane to UT.
      many thanks for any information.

      I am on quite a tight trip, and am planning on getting an early morning bus from Vang Vieng to Vientiane, to get a flight at 5PM. I believe the journey time is max 5 hours, so I think I should make it ok. Does everyone think this is a safe bet, or is there a risk of breakdowns/ delays/ general slowness that would make me miss my flight?

      Thanks for your help.

    • From Vientiane to Vang Vieng after 6pm, Saturday

      Vientiane May 5, 2011 at 7:24 AM

      Hi my friend and I will be traveling to Laos in July. We'll arrive at Wattay Airport at 5pm and we plan going straight to Vang Vieng . I understand this is a 4 hours journey but this is only a 4 days trip so our time is limited. We'll visit Vientiane on our last day though before heading back to Malaysia.

      Question is, is there any transport from Wattay Airport/Vientiane to Vang Vieng after 6pm, on Saturday? And how much would they cost? Do I need any pre-booking and where they are?

      Thanks in advance for your time and reply =)

      Vang Vieng Nov 1, 2010 at 2:50 AM

      Hi there,

      We are arriving in Vientiane at around 3:00pm and want to go to vang vieng straight away that day from the airport. I think from memory last time I was in laos that the buses from Vientiane to Vang Vieng leave Vientiane at around lunchtime? My friend and I are also wanting to pre-arrange transport so we dont have to worry about it when we get there. Does anyone know of any good companies to book a private car from Vientiane to Vang Vieng through? Or is is easy to get a taxi when we get to the airport? Are taxi's reliable going that distance? Anyone know how much it should cost? I have had a bit of a look on the internet but cant find any companies to book a transfer through. Any suggestions/information would be much appreciated! Thanks, Flick

      Vientiane to Luang Prabang

      Our 4 week journey will start in Bangkok and we plan to travel to Vientiane by overnight train just for the experience, in Feb 2011.

      Once in Laos is it worth travelling by coach from V to LP? Some suggestions are that it is such a long journey that it should be done overnight. As we would be doing this to see the country instead of flying over it this rather defeats the object we think. However, as I suffer from vertigo might it be better to fly? Suggestions from your experiences please.
