Getting there and away
The bus station is located down a dirt track off the main road behind the large petrol station as you head out of town west towards Tha Teng. As in many of southeastern Laos' town centres, transportation schedules are more a matter of local knowledge than anything else -- there's no well-informed person sitting behind a ticket booth to provide a complete rundown. Here's what we were able to glean from asking around:
Attapeu Departs 09:00. 50km. 25,000 kip (through buses from Pakse swing through town regularly and can be waved down on the side of the main road)
Pakse Departs hourly between 05:00 and 16:30. About 140km. 55,000 kip
Paksong Catch the Pakse bus. 77km. 35,000 kip
Salavan Departs: 11:00. 93km. 30,000 kip
