How to get from Bangkok to Vientiane

After the bustling capital of Thailand with it proud high rises piercing the skies, modern skytrain whisking passengers around the city above the ground and busy world-class shopping centres, Vientiane may feel too sleepy, too low-storied, too rustic and too simple. And in some way it is. But if you stop comparing Vientiane to Bangkok, you will discover tons of charm in the wide leafy boulevards and elaborately decorated historical wats and enjoy simple Lao pleasures – from spicy laap salad and ice-cold beer Lao to the measured pace of local life. The mighty Mekong adds to the meditative mood, and the amazing sunsets over the river never fail to impress.

From Bangkok to Vientiane

The road distance from Bangkok to Vientiane is 650 km and you need at least 10 hours to get to Laos, including the time you send at the border. Nong Khai–Vientiane border crossing is most probably the busiest one among all the other land border crossings between Thailand and Laos. That said, queues are normally reasonable and you are not pushed too much to pay extra for your Lao visa if you need one.

Flights from Bangkok to Vientiane

There are direct flights between both Bangkok airports and Vientiane, all taking 1¼ hours. The cheapest deals are often offered by AirAsia which uses Don Mueang Airport in Bangkok as their hub. Normally you can get tickets for THB2000, less if you buy in advance during promotion periods. If you prefer to fly from Suvarnabhumi, consider Lao Airlines, which is more expensive (THB3500 and up), but includes 20 kg of checked luggage into their ticket price. Thai Airways and Bangkok Airways also operate their flights from Suvarnabhumi.

In Vientiane the International Airport Wattay is located 3 km northwest of the centre. The terminal building has been given a facelift recently and now features ATMs, currency exchange counters, several snacks outlets, restaurants and the information counter. You can get an official taxi to the centre of Vientiane right at the airport in the arrivals hall. The rate is flat and is USD7. A budget option is to get out of the terminal building and walk to the main road (about 500 m) where you can negotiate a ride with tuk-tuk drivers (normally at half of the taxi price) or hop onto a local bus which costs 4000 kip (USD0.5).

Tip A decent alternative to taking a direct flight from Bangkok to Vientiane is heading from Bangkok to Udon Thani instead. This domestic flight costs less and you have a wider choice of departures throughout the day with AirAsia, Lion Air or Nok Air. From Udon Thani airport you can take a bus to get to the city bus station and take the direct international bus to Vientiane from there. The international service departs eight times a day from 8am till 6pm and costs THB80. There is also van service to Vientiane from Udon Thani airport (THB200). In total it is 80 km from Udon Thani to Vientiane; expect to spend from two to three hours to get to Laos, including the time you spend at the border.

Note If taking the international bus/van from Udon Thani to Vientiane you may be rejected the ride if you do not have your Lao visa yet and are going to get one at the border. The only reason for rejection is that the bus drivers do not want to wait for the passengers obtaining their visas at the border. In this case ask for the transport to the Thai border – once at the Lao side of the border, you can then take a tuk-tuk to your destination.

Direct bus from Bangkok to Vientiane

There is direct international bus service from Bangkok to Vientiane. The service is operated by Transport Co Intl based at Morchit Bus Terminal in Bangkok. The bus departs daily at 8pm from and reaches Talat Sao bus station in Vientiane by 7am the next morning. If you are heading to the Thai consulate in Vientiane to apply for your Thai visa, this bus is a sure bet to get to the consulate in time. Tickets cost THB1000 which is in fact approximately one third more than you would spend if taking a bus to Nong Khai and then catching the international bus to Vientiane from Nong Khai bus station.

Note that there are only six buses a day from Nong Khai to Vientiane with rather an inconvenient gap in schedule between 9.30am and 12.40pm.

The bus from Bangkok to Vientiane is an ordinary VIP bus with four seats per row. Some of the buses serving the route do look rather tired; so do not expect extra comfort. There are several bathroom stops en route at large gas stations with food courts and/or convenience stores to stock up on munchies. Snacks and water are served on board along with late dinner in the form of a lunch box containing some rice and curry. In general, taking the direct international bus from Bangkok to Vientiane is a convenient and hassle free way to get to the capital of Laos.

From Bangkok to Vientiane via Nong Khai

Nong Khai makes for a convenient transit point for travelling to Vientiane overland. In Bangkok, buses for Nong Khai depart all day through from the northern bus terminal, Morchit, and arrive to Nong Khai bus station, the majority of them taking from nine to 10 hours (THB500-THB600).

From Nong Khai bus station take the international bus to Vientiane (7.30am, 9.30am, 12.40pm, 2.30pm, 3.30pm. 6pm; THB60; buy tickets on the spot) or get a tuk-tuk to the border (THB60), then hop onto the shuttle bus over the bridge to the other side of the border (THB50) and negotiate a tuk-tuk ride to Vientiane from there (from THB100).

Nong Khai sits at the end of the Northeastern Line of Thai railway network and it is a good point to get there by train. The most convenient option is arguably train #69 departing from Hua Lamphong train station in Bangkok at 8pm and reaching Nong Khai at 6.45am the next morning. It offers first (THB1500) and second class (THB1000) sleepers (ladies only as well) which are a great way to travel.

From Nong Khai train station you can either take a shuttle train to Tha Nalaeng train station in Laos or walk to the border, exit Thailand, get onto the shuttle bus running over the bridge to the Lao side, get your Lao visa (if you need one), enter Laos and enjoy a hearty welcome from numerous tuk-tuk drivers offering reasonable prices for a 20 km ride to Vientiane (from THB60 per person or THB200 for the whole vehicle). Taking a shuttle train to Tha Nalaeng is less preferable as you will have then get from Tha Nalaeng to Vientiane, with the transportation options limited to few tuk-tuk drivers who do not know what modesty is about!

Getting your Lao visa on arrival

If you need a visa to enter Laos, you can get one on arrival in Vientiane airport, at the immigration offices on the Lao side of Nong Khai–Vientiane border or at the train station of Tha Nalaeng.

The majority of the nationalities can obtain a 30-day tourist visa on arrival (check in advance). The visa fee varies depending on your country of residence but is USD30 for the majority of the countries. You can pay in Thai baht, too, but it will cost you a bit more (THB1500; ~USD45). Take a visa application form from the officer, fill it in, have 2 small photos to attach to your application (or pay a couple of bucks if you do not have pics) and get your Lao visa.

Getting around in Vientiane

Wide Vientiane boulevards and streets do not see as much traffic as other Asian capitals, and the flat terrain makes it possible to negotiate the city thanons by bicycle. These are available for rent in many guesthouses at about USD1 per day, though the quality of such bicycles leaves much to be desired.

Tuk-tuks are plentiful but those hanging around the night market close to Mekong do not fall below USD5 with their rates.

There are public buses in Vientiane (6,000 kip) and the most useful route is #14 from Talat Sao (Morning market) to the Friendship bridge and further to Buddha Park.

Things to do in Vientiane

Though at first sight Vientiane may look modest compared to the capitals of the neighbouring countries, it definitely has enough sights and activities to keep you busy at least for a couple of days. The city features quite a few interesting wats and stupas out of which try not to miss Wat Ho Phra Kaew, the 16th century temple which used to house the sacred Emerald Buddha image, now resident in Wat Phra Kaew in Bangkok. Not less impressive is Wat Sisaket, the oldest monastery in Laos with great murals depicting scenes from Jataka. That Luang, one the most important religious monuments in the country, dates back to the 16th century as well, but was rebuilt in the middle of the past century; yet the shape of this stupa reminiscent of a lotus bud has been replicated in many wats throughout the country and in Thai region of Isan.

You will come across Patuxia and the black stupa more than once while taking a stroll around the city; the former has a nice park with a fountain and is especially pleasant at sunset. The weird Buddha Park located 25 km southeast of Vientiane is worth visiting, too, even if you have already seen the similar park in Nong Khai. The atmosphere there is serene and there are usually not too many visitors wandering between the stone images of Buddhist and Hindu deities.

Onward travel from Vientiane

The two star destinations in Laos easily reached from Vientiane are Luang Phabang, a rare gem of elegant French architecture, golden wats and traditional wooden houses, and Vang Vieng, a famous tubing capital of the country which now enjoys a much quieter vibe after all those bars along the river have been ordered to close. Out of international destinations you can get to overland, consider Hanoi, though a 22-hour bus ride is not the experience everyone is longing for.

Passenger reviews out of total 10,395 passengers who traveled with us on this route.

At 12Go our operators offer three types of service:

Cheap, Fast, Good - but you can usually pick only two of them!
Cheap & Fast won’t be Good. (e.g. buses from/to Khao San Road, local buses or 3rd class trains)
Cheap & Good won’t be Fast. (e.g. VIP trains in Thailand)
Fast & Good won’t be Cheap. (e.g. private limousine services, or VIP24 buses vs Express buses)

Make your choice! Please remember that while we are closely monitoring the services, we are still an agency marketplace. That means we focus on ticketing services and route availability & coverage rather than on the factual seat reclining angle you will get on the bus today.

The bus was clean, seats comfy and had a good recline for actual sleeping. We got a chip packet, water and dinner when boarding. We had just eaten so we waited to eat, but then realized we didn't have any utensils to eat it with...oh well.. the guy organising everything on board seemed up with it all. He wrote down which seats were getting off where so he could wake you up if you were sleeping. Sad there are no USB ports. Also found that the massage chairs didn't massage :-/

System for checking in could be clearer, and the insistence on being at the airport 3 hours in advance of an international flight is ridiculous, but other than that, this was a good journey, with a clearly marked airport bus stop at Mo Chit BTS station. The journey to the airport will be even easier once the BTS extension is built!

VIP Sleeper was smooth and quiet - I believe this was one of the newer cars from China. High tech: Flat panel screens in compartment showed everything from trip progress to temperatures to the occupancy status of the two toilets, the urinal, and the shower at the end of the car. Bunks were very firm: good for people who like their mattresses that way but maybe just a bit hard for those who don't.

*Cons: 1) Very old, I'd say "ancient", bus. 2) Entertainment system and massage weren't working. 3)Bus arrived 3 hours (!!!) late than in schedule. 3) It was freezing as hell at night. 4)In Nong Khai bus wasn't stop at Friendship Bridge and goes straight to bus station , keep that in mind! 5) Terrible toilet. *Pros: 1)No cockroaches. I think it want survives in that bloody cold night. 2) Seating was big and comfort enough. *Well. it was our first and last trip with Chan Tour. Nalonchai Air - one love. [ ********************************************] Минусы: 1) Очень старый, можно сказать древний автобус. 2) Не работает, ни система развлечений, ни массаж в кресле. 3) В Нонг Кай автобус пришел с техчасовым (!!!) опозданием. Еле-как успели попасть в консульство во Вьентьяне. 4) Ночью было холодно как на северном полюсе, не смотря на теплую одежду и одеяло. 5) В Нонг Кай автобус возле границы (Мост Дружбы) НЕ ОСТАНАВЛИВАЕТСЯ, имейте это в виду и не верьте Данилу. 6) Туалет очень не удобный, смывать за собой нужно водой из ведерка, нормальной подачи воды нет, соотв. умывальник тоже не работает. Ну хоть не воняло и то ладно. Плюсы: 1) Не было тараканов. Похоже они не выживают в таком холоде. 2)Кресла хоть и старые, но довольно удобные. Резюме: это была наша первая и последняя поездка автобусами Chan Tour. Nakonchai Air - ван лав!

It was difficult to sleep because the lights stayed on all night. Last year I traveled in the older train, the lights were shut off and so it was easy to sleep. Had to fight to sleep and cover my eyes for darkness. Can't the company at least turn the lights off at 10:00 PM, so people can sleep in the dark, which is necessary for a healthy sleep.

The train was in excellent condition, complete with adjustable aircon, a shower, comfortable bedding and food available. It ran on time and we were pleasantly surprised to be able to transfer to Vientiane very easily via Thanaleng.

We bought railway tickets via 12asia, and discovered that the price were nearly 100% more than at the ticket office at the railway station. We will never use 12asia again. Hanne and Jens, Denmark

It worked out really well. The train staff were very professional and efficient. Security was good. I slept better than I expected. Only slight downside was that it got quite hot during the night - was the air-con turned off? We arrived late but in perfect time for the train across the Friendship bridge to Laos.

★★★☆☆
The trop was OK with comfortable seats (2nd class). We had no air conditioning (technical problem) and therefore had to travel with half open windows. Cosequently a noisy drive. The raiway company refunded a part of the ticket cost for the inconvenience. The absolute positive point is that Booking the tickets through 12GO is easy and very efficient. So wherever you go, choose 12GO !!

All worked well. Modern and spotlessly clean train. Good restaurant car. But sleeping was hard, beds short for me (180cm), and the journey was quite noisy. Great service from 12go and from Thai Railways staff. Easy crossing into Laos.
