    I haven't done this exact route but I'm pretty much certain it cannot be done in one go. You're talking a long distance here.

    It may go something like this (and involve an overnight in Stung Treng):

    Kampot-Phomh Penh-Stung Treng-Laos

    But I'm sure the regulars on here will have a more exact routing.

    Define easy enough. You can easily take a bus to Phnom Penh and then fly to Vientiane .

    If being cheap is your priority you have a couple options, either head up through Cambodia into Southern Laos or head to Bangkok and then up to Vientiane.

    Going through Cambodia to Laos looks like it would be a 3 day trip, minimum 2 days. First would take bus from Kampot to Phnom Penh then the next morning can take bus to Stung Treng and then following day bus to the border. If your destination is Vientiane then you could take bus from Stung Treng to Pakse and then that night take night bus to Vientiane.

    The other option is to take bus to Koh Kong and then through to Bangkok. Spend the next day in Bangkok and then take sleeper train to Nong Khai and then shuttle through border to Vientiane. This would get you to Vientiane a little quicker and would be more comfortable I believe.
