TTR reports that Vietnam and Laos have opened a bus link between Qui Nhon in Binh Dinh province and Pakse in Champasak, Laos . The route is intended to draw overland tourist across border between Thailand and Vietnam . The new service launched on July 4th takes about 12 hours and costs US$16. The busses currently run four weekly trips on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Sunday. The trip runs through Pleiku and Kontum provinces in Vietnam and Attapeu, Sekong and Champasak in Laos.
I'd be very interested to hear from anyone who has done this trip...

I saw a bus at the (northern I think) Pakse bus station just yesterday which had PAKSE-DANANG in big letters on the sides, so it seems that the bus exists, at least.
I presume this means that the route 18B beyond Attapeu should be passable?
