Vientiane to Vang Vieng to Luang Prabang

Hi,

I am planning a trip to Laos in April. I would like to have all transportation taken care of before arrival. What websites can I find to purchase bus tickets in advance where you can choose the time and bus? Is there a good travel agency I can contact so they can plan beforehand for me?

Anybody know a good driver who can pick up from airport in Vientiane to my hotel. As well as a good driver in Luang Prabang from hotel to airport?

thanks.

Plenty of taxis and tuktuks for the short trip from airport to the hotels in Vientiane, no need for a driver. Most hotels can arrange for long distance bus tickets. We always purchased our tickets the day before and never had a problem

https://12go.asia looks reliable, but in most cases you can just book a bus from your hotel the day before. As for hotel-airport transfers just flag down any tuk tuk/jumbo/songthaew, booking a private car for such a short transfer is impractical. If you're travels include mid-April (12-16) note this is Lao New Year festival and things get a bit crazy-busy.

After immigration and baggage claim. Look straight thru, you will see taxi service counter for city center is only 57,000 kip (Bank to exchange money right next to it) They using a new car very nice and comfortable ride.

I can recommend Mr. Loy's taxi service. We hired him to drive us from Vientiane to Vang Vieng, for $90. He is also willing to drive to Luang Prabang. Having survived a harrowing public van ride from Vang Vieng to Luang Prabang, I am even more appreciative of Mr. Loy's expert driving. He speaks good English. You can reach him at Loy_pae@yahoo.com, telephone +8562028924659.
