Thanks (sorry didn't realise till now I posted this in Thailand forum)
Arrghhh...don't know if I can do a 12 hour bus journey....will have to have a think.
Which airlines is it (I can't find anything again....) and has anyone done the flight from Huay Xai to Vietiane?

From memory Lao Airlined fly from Vientiane to Huay Xai , but not the other way (the plane does a three stop loop - Vientiane - Huay Xai - Luang Prabang ) but it doesn't fly every day. Check their schedule for details.
Then click on the Domestic Flight Schedule tab:

NewbieC if a long busride is seriously off-putting you might not like Laos travel very much =) If you have time, maybe overnight (or two) in Luang Namtha then get the morning bus to Luang Prabang (about 8 hours) or just to Udomxai and do a sidetrip to Nong Kiew then get a boat down the Nam Ou to Luang Prabang. Several alternatives to just one really long busride.
Thanks again - Captain Bob your picture is really freaking me out!!
I think we might to try break up the bus journey (btw we're only doing North Laos because of my dislike for long bus trips.......)

I'm not seeing Huay Xai as a destination on the Lao Air website ...
this is crucial as we're already signed up to do a jungle trek. and I don't want to: A) do the 15 hr bus trip from Luang and spend NEw Years eve in Huay Xai.
any news on this? anyone?
