Lao Aviation fly that route every other day I believe, so I'd assume it is fairly popular. Perhaps check on availability when you first get to Laos and decide if to book in advance then. Certainly worth the effort to see Angkor!

i think the lao aviation flight from vientiane to siem reap includes a stopover in pakse in southern laos. i've been able to book flights on lao aviation fairly easily and only a few days in advance, but i agree that you'd be best off to check into those flights as soon as you arrive in laos. they'll want you to pay in US dollars too, either in cash or with a credit card. i guess if it fit your schedule, you could even work in a stopover in pakse to visit wat phou as a fab warm up to angkor. regards.
