Passenger reviews out of total 883 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.

Price much cheaper at 150,000 Laotian Kip at the bus station. Sleeper bus is hot and shared bed is small.

They said the trip would take 6 hours, but we arrived in 3.5 hours. That was a nice surprise! There were a lot of sharp turns so if you have a weak stomach, be prepared. There is a stop after around 2 hours of driving where you can get something to eat and where you can use the bathroom. Overall the journey was fine.

The way to Vang Vieng is through the mountains, so the road is windy and also full of potholes. Our driver was speeding like crazy through the hills and towns, even in the curves up on the cliffs sometimes! When he started talking on the phone with one hand on the wheel I started praying to God and I'm not even religious. Our whole group were scared for our lives. Absolutely ridiculous! The only good thing was that we arrived early so we could get out of the car. Honestly would not mind the trip taking twice as long if the driving was safe! On the plus side the car we drove in was really nice and we had a pit stop for about 20 min.

- We already get on our bus which was going to depart at 8:00. But the driver move us to another bus and we have to wait for almost 1 hour. - this is not acceptable coz we has booked our seat in advance. We woke up early to reach the bus station on time.

Started of well with pick up on time hotel. About 15mins into journey the driver got a phone call and pulled over and aggressively asked us where our tickets were even though he had taken the paper ticket when coming to get us. I told him u took our paper he lied and said no and said where is the ticket on the phone. The ticket on the phone is same thing as the paper and can only be seen through email which requires u to have internet and we did not. I told him I gave u the paper again he still said no. My partner was sitting in the front seat next to the driver and saw a paper in the compartment which the driver had put there and he pulled it out an it was our ticket. We said look to the driver it says we have paid and this is our name. The driver looked at it and made another phone call took a picture of the ticket and continued to drive without giving us any apology. This seemed very stupid as if we had not paid how would he know where to pick us up... and the fact that he checked out ticket before we got on the bus. Only giving it 3 stars because we arrived early.

Everything was on time and the driver was helpful, but he drove very fast and dangerously and we almost got in car accidents 4 times.

Journey took 5 hours including 2 10-20 minutes stops but this was the only good thing! The road is very windy and bumpy due to potholes and the road not being completed, and the driver did not slow down at all meaning everyone in the van was being flung around! He was also extremely rude and when we got to Vang Vieng, he chucked our bags off the van to the floor and during a stop to eat, 2 ladies couldn’t finish their meal because he finished his in5 mins... not a considerate driver but I guess that’s why we got there in less time than stated on the website

Comfortable minivan but the driver drove extremely fast and risky, I felt quite unsafe.

This trip was fine. But we were meant to leave at 15 and ended up leaving at 16:30, so we were just waiting around for a long time. Also, the journey took longer than 6 hours, which was quite annoying because the road was very windy as well. But overall, it was fine. We stopped a couple times for toilet and food and we got to the place we wanted to go.

It’s good that you have asigned seats: if people stick to it. Driver wasn’t very carefull and he raced through the bumps. That was not very comfortable. The free lunch was a nice surprise!

Very convenient. We arrived at the bus terminal in Vang Vieng earlier than expected.

We had our hotel confirm they were coming to pick us up and they give us a range of time to be ready 7:30am to 8:30am. They sent a tukt tuk to pick up my wife and I at 7:30am that then went around town to pick up others as well. Little after 8am we were dropped off at a bus depot. You then exchange your printed out ticket for one of theirs and get load on to a large van with your luggage on top. The ride was long and winding but as expected. We were on the road by 9:30am and arrived to Vang Vieng around 2pm. They dropped us off at some parking lot that is in the middle of town, about 10min walk for us to our hotel or 10,000 kip pp tuk tuk ride. If you chill and relax and know that they will get you to your location on a decent time, everything is fine. I would not try to plan any activities on the day of travel as things can get delayed and the roads are not the best. There was lots of constructions and sections of the "road" that was not paved, leaving the driver to go much slower. If you are one to possibly get car sick be sure to take some Dramamine before the van leaves the depot. They do stop at least once for a 15-20min break to use the bathroom and have lunch.

overall experience was fine. minivan driver drove very fast and recklessly on winding, bumpy, undeveloped roads. only advice —> slow down when you have 10+ lives in your hands

We booked on 12go.asia. Unfortunatly they charged more to book the bus than the cost of the bus itself. If you book the bus with a local travel shop or at the bus terminal itself it’s much cheaper. On the site it’s also sold as an VIP bus, when it’s just a normaal sleepingbus with not much of sleepingspace.

Considering the road is so bad the driver managed it wonderful, but don't expect to arrive on time or sleep much: it is too bumpy. No toilet on board, the driver stopped periodically and we had to pay to use toilet. Bed was clean and water was provided :)

bus Standard AC, Naga Travel
Bus left at 08:30, arrived at just after 21:30. That's about an average of 25 km/hr for the 340 km journey. Roads are woeful, pot holes and washouts everywhere, however the driver was brilliant, slowing down for almost all potholes (but making the trip longer). Got a bottle of water and rest stops for 5-10 mins every 2 hrs. Comfortable and fell asleep a couple of times.

bus Express Sleeper 41, Naga Travel
As expected, a bumpy ride with several random stops where the driver deals with something inexplicable. Seats are an interesting set up; 3 rows of single bunks. You can lie back pretty far so it’s ok to sleep. No space for your small bag, so bring minimum only into bus and leave the rest in the luggage space below. It does get very cold so have socks and jumpers, scarves at the ready. Toilets had the funniest sign ‘allow to pee, not poo!’. Very narrow corridor between rows - can’t be too fat! Snack, tiny water bottle and blanket provided.

Our bus had an issue about 45 minutes after leaving the station at Luang Prabang amd we waited for an hour or more to change buses. Then the driver stopped again half an hour later for 15-20 minutes and the whole ride he kept playing music loudly.

While a sleeping is never going to be the most comfortable, this one is pretty uncomfortable. The max height to lay flat in the bed is about 5ft 8inch. But it did the job. Best to book locally as it is significantly cheaper than 12go
