    Hi guys,

    I'm looking into the option of flying with Air Asia from Vientiane to Kuala Lumpur and then directly to HCMC the same day. Logistically maybe quite strange, but much cheaper than flying with Vietnam Airlines directly from Vientiane to HCMC (=about 2x as expensive). Now my quesiton is: would I need any visum to do this transfer? And would it be ok luggage wise?

    This will be treated as two seperate flights by Air Asia - so you will need to retieve your bags at LCCT, then check in for the flight to HCMC. You will be entering Malaysia, so if you are from a country that needs a visa, then this will apply... You will also need a visa for arrival in HCMC of course...
