The drive reached before the train's arrival and took us safely and fast to Vientiane city centre. Nice trip. Please prepare some Thailand Baht small amount bills, and you will use them when just in the city. It's not easy to find a money changer for exchanging Laos kip even in Bangkok

We bought a combo ticket that included the trainride from Nong Khai to Vientanne treinstation. And from there we had a small minivan from PTS that would transport is to the big bus on the outside of vientanne where more people would hop on. First of all the train was 1,5 hour late, so the people at the trainstation where very helpfull and made some phone calls. They told us to take a taxi to the border get a signout stamp from thai border control and buy bustickets to transport you over the bridge into Laos. Once there get your visa, take a taxi to the trainstation to be on time for your bus. We did all this and when we came in the trainstation, there is no PTS counter, the people who work at the station are very kind and strated making phone calls to the number provided on the voucher, but no answer. Finnaly a man came Walking to us that was the driver of PTS and he told is we had to wait for the train as there was 1 more person that would come with us. After we waited for 1,5 hour the train arrived and we waited 30 minutes more for everyone the get a visa. Then the minivan driver drives us to the big bus, where we waited more 45 minutes because other people were late also. In the end of has nothing to do with 12go. But the fact they did not answer the phone worried us all. In the end it is better for your money to buy a big bus ticket in Nong Khai or Udon Thani. This is about 180 bath cheaper. The bus ticket from Udon to Vang Vieng will cost 320 bath. We paid 500 bath in 12go from Nong Khai. And in Vang Vieng a big bus ticket can be bought for 350 bath to Nong Khai, and we paid 12go 450 bath. The minivan was terrible ride , very old. No airco and the dust and sand comes right trough the holes and cracks of the van. Not good for your health , so bring face breathing dust masks

The 12go staff were super friendly and absolutely lovely when we went to pick up our tickets, and we are bery pleased with the service. The train itself was fine however I recobooking in either first class or lower berths as the lights stay on all nigh and the upper berth beds are thus very difficult to actually sleep in.

Super, worked flawlessly and 12go has a nice cafe in Bangkok. Also had a nice talk with the german manager. Greetings to you and thanks for all the advise.

We got the train sleeper, and it’s great! More than expected. Once we get to the Dongphosy station we are asked to pay 50baht at the immigration in Laos, and transfer is not hard to find just look for 12go small green table.Though we missed the ticket from nong khai to thanaleng we crossed immigration right away exiting Thailand and missed the ticket booth but all in all a great trip! Would recommend! Keep it up!

Excellent friendly, helpful service. Booked on line from UK, picked tickets up in Bangkok and everything smooth without any hitch! Thanks.

All extremely efficient and entirely straightforward. It’s important to read through the documents and thoroughly prepare for your journey. Reading some other comments it’s clear that not everyone does so! Everything was easy, straightforward and ran on time. Would recommend booking the rail/minivan transfer from Nong Khai - Thanaleng and into Vientiane, which dropped us straight at our hotel. This can also be done through 12GoAsia and made the entire journey stress free

Smooth and well handled. Would definitely recommend

The transfer van to the hotel was too small for the number of people with their luggage. No information was locally provided so the process was very unclear and slow.
van Regional 14pax, PTS Transit Service, Dec 5, 2018
They didn’t speak English in the station Nong Khai. It was a bit confused to understand that we need to change for a small train. And the train arrived very late to Nong Khai, one hour after

The van didn't come or came, stand somewhere else and driver didn't even come to the hostel. I was waiting from 7:30 at the hostel lobby. Do not recommend

the travel is smooth. but we were group by etnicity and favored last to leave. we arrived nong khai 9am and left past 10am already. we belong to the "asian" van btw. lol

The driver had excellent English and was quick and helpful with everything!

Nowhere did 12go mention how the transit train from NONG KHAI to THANALENG is covered, just says get on it. However, on arrival at Nong Khai, I was directed by station staff to the ticket counter to buy a 20BAHT ticket for the trip. Afterwards, I met travellers who had also been sent to the ticket office but had got their tickets for free on presentation of the PTS voucher!

No toilet on bus, but have one 15 min stop during the route. Roads very bad in Laos so be prepared for a shaky ride
