Luang Prabang to Phonsavan to Hanoi
22nd January, 2013
Hello all. I am going to be in Luang Prabang in two-three weeks and considering a one day stop in Phonsavan to see the Plain of Jars on my way to Hanoi . I guess I have three questions involving this.
1- How long does it take for the Vietnamese Consulate in Luang Prabang to process a Vietnam visa?
2- I've read about different styles of buses departing Luang Prabang for Hanoi on different days and that you definitely want to get a certain type of bus. What kind of bus leaves on what day? (I think it takes 24 hours and costs around 320,000 kip?)
3- Is it possible to go DIRECT from Phonsavan to Hanoi? And what are all the details if it is? It seems pretty straightforward from Luang Prabang to Phonsavan, but I have found zero information about getting to Hanoi from Phonsavan directly.
Thank you in advance,

As I am looking up more on this, I discovered the Pathet Lao caves of Vieng Xia. So now I ask is there a way to go Luang Prabang - Phonsavan - Vieng Xai - Hanoi. I'm guessing this is too specific and difficult for solid answers, but maybe somebody had the same idea as me. Also, please still look at my first three questions as those are still relevant and my travel plans for Laos are nowhere near set in stone. (Except for the small time frame there.)

Yes, you can. All pretty easy although when in Vietnam you might need a change of bus in Thanh Hoa.
