Getting to Vientiane :
There are three general ways to get to Vientiane :

  • 1.) Fly direct to Wattay International Airport in Vientiane.
  • 2.) Fly from from Bangkok to Udon Thani International airport with a budget carrier such as AirAsia or Nok Air, and then take a bus it to Vientiane, which is approximately one and a half hours away.
  • 3.) You may also want to consider the night train: The new station is outside of Vientiane on the way to the Friendship Bridge. The train leaves once daily and its final destination is Bangkok. This trip is serene, but it requires at least 12 hours, and is often delayed. Make sure you have ample time before you decide to take the train.


Friendship Bridge Crossing
Trains, Planes and Automobiles: Arriving by budget airplane from Udon Thani, Bus from Nong Khai, or Train from Vientiane
If you're on a really tight budget, you can fly AirAsia or Nok Air from Bangkok to Udon Thani. If you book in advance, this can usually save you  around $50.00 from flying into Vientiane, but it also creates a hassle if you have a lot of luggage. If you decide to take a budget flight from BKK to Udon Thani, you will need to purchase a 200 Baht mini-van ticket to the Friendship Bridge. The mini-van ticket counter is directly outside of the arrival hall. The trip will take around 1 hour and 30 minutes to the border. Then, you will need to stamp out of Thailand,and buy a bus ticket that will take you across the bridge for 15 Baht. Once you cross the Mekong River, you will be dropped in front of Lao Immigration. Make sure you keep all of your belongings with you at all times. After you pass through immigration, cross into Laos; there, you will be greeted by a dozen tuk-tuk and van drivers wishing to take you to Vientiane. Travelling by van is faster and more comfortable. Pay no more than 200 Baht for your ride to your destination in town. Make sure you know your exact address to show the driver if you are not acquainted with Vientiane.

Alternatively, you can also take the over-night train (approximately 12 hours) from Bangkok to Nong Khai. Once you‟re in Nong Khai, you can buy the connecting ticket to Vientiane. Be cautioned that the train station is as far out of town as the Friendship Bridge to Thailand. Once you‟re at the Vientiane Train Station, you can catch a tuk-tuk to your desired destination.

You can also take an overnight bus (approximately 8 hours) from Bangkok Mochit Station to Nong Khai. At the bus station in Bangkok called, "Mochit‟ ask for a VIP bus ticket at Chan Tours or 999 Tours. Chan Tours offers a VIP ticket (approximately 700 Baht) to Nong Khai that includes a personal entertainment system, massage seats and a light snack. Once you arrive in Nong Khai, take a bus to the Friendship Bridge, then a tuk-tuk or Taxi to Vientiane.
