Getting around

Posted by Stef77 on 30/3/2017 at 09:10

Hello All!

I'm planning to make some big leaps between Luang Prabang and Phonsavan , Phonsavan and Thakhek, Thakhek and 4000 Islands. I'm looking for advice on the best travel options. I'm not super picky but I also don't mind paying a bit more for either ease or comfort. Thanks!!

Hi Stef77,
Those are definitely big leaps but relatively straightforward. Take the bus from Luang Prabang to Phonsavan - the bus journey will take a day. There's usually a flight once a day from Xieng Khouang to Vientiane , then take a bus from Vientiane to Tha Khaek . The local bus to Tha Khaek will be slow; for more comfort, another option is to take any VIP bus headed to Pakse and it can drop you off en route. Tha Khaek to 4000 Islands is relatively easy -- a smooth, flat bus ride down Route 13.

Bus from Phonsavan to Tha Khaek is an option -- that's a long, tedious journey.
