Hi guys

I'm hoping to catch a flight from CM to LP mid August. Can some folks who have done this offer up any advice? I hoping that I can book the ticket just a few days before leaving while in CM. Is this do-able? I plan and spending some time in the CM area before Laos but don't want to be locked in a set itineary weeks before my trip has even started. Then again, I want to catch that flight...

Any help?

Thanks!

Pretty easy to get the flight by booking here in CM a few days in advance. Schedule online (currently outdated) says daily but in August I'm not seeing flights Mondays and Thursdays. Web price is $164.60 but agents here can usually do it closer to $150.

Thanks for the info. Should I buy a ticket directly at the airport or can anyone recommend a
reputable travel agent in CM?

Thanks for all the help everyone!

There's no Lao Airlines counter at the CM airport. Buy from their office on the Huay Kaew road or from just about any agent in town.
