I have a question that hopefully someone can give me guidance on. I'm expecting to be in Vientane from the 11th or 12th of April 2009, and was planning on staying until about the 14th or 15th, before catching an overnight bus to Hue.
I know that I'll have to book my accommodation in Vientiane well in advance, but I was also wondering about travelling onwards. Pimai Lao is (I believe) 13-15th April 2009. During this time will I be able to get a visa in Vientiane to move on to Vietnam, or will the consulate be close?
Also will it be possible to get bus services onwards, or will I have to wait until after the 15th?

Just thought I'd bump this up the message board one more time in case it got missed last time :)

Thanks for the bump, I did miss it.
Buses should still be running, but I'm not sure about the Vietnamese consulate -- if I had to guess I'd say they'll be closed. I'd suggest dropping them a line beforehand (try firstname.lastname@example.org), else perhaps arrange the visa earlier -- in Bangkok perhaps?
hi there - you might want to confirm the dates for Pii mai (see my thread in this forum)
