taxi/private car from veintiane to vang vieng

by felicity85 Online Now 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

    You'll be able to get taxi from Airport to VV. For taxi men that's good way to earn money and there'd be hardly a person to say no.

    I have couple of reliable contacts if you still want some specific ones - but one can speak Lao only and another can speal English and Lao. For the price you'll need to talk to them directly.

    Also, for better information about bus departures from Vientiane and prices you should check travelish web site, they specialize in SEA:

    Hi there,we are planning to visit Laos next year. Please give me some suggestions once you have finished your trip. I am planning to spend 6 days there then fly to Vietnam for the second time. I want to see Vietience and Luang Prabang and others if we have time.
    Happy vacation!

    You can spend 1-2 days (at least one full day is okay, too) in Vientiane to see temples and Buddha Park near friendship bridge. Then take bus/mini bus to Vang Vieng, spend 1-2 days there (you need one day for tubing/kayaking down the river, see some caves along the river and another day you can do more caves and cycling in countryside), or skip VV (it's 10 hrs ride Vientiane to Luang Prabang) and the rest spend in Luang Prabang. You can fly to Vietnam from there.

    How to divide your time in Laos depends on your interests :)
