    I was planning in spending Pii Mai in Vientiane. Immediately after though I need to get into Bangkok to organise a visa for Myanmar and catch my flight. Will there be any issues leaving immediately after the festival finishes? Also would it be possible to leave during? Or is everything shut down?

    Transportation to Bangkok will of course be very busy at the end of the festival which runs April 13-16 give or take a day. "Will there be any issues"? Only if you can't find an available seat on a bus, but I'd wager you will find one. Forget trains though - full full full right through the period.

    Forget trains full stop? What if I book a few weeks in advance?

    You can try but I'm fairly sure they are already fully booked for the festival period.
