Will be in Vientiane with a group of 10 for 3 nights late November. Looking for nice restaurant with good food, and if possible a view and entertainment.
Appreciate all recommendations.
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.
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 =)
we are flying from luang prabang to vientiane in november and want to fly from there to kuala lumpur on the same day. the flight to vientiane is supposed to arrive at 13:40 and the flight to KL is supposed to leave at 15:40. seeing that this is laos, will that be doable? has anyone done this, do the flights leave on time and will that give us enough time to make the connection?
Hi,I will be taking a flight from Udon Thani to BKK next month end.

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.
