Vang Vieng to Vientiane Destination Reviews

Got us from A to B. However the minivan was extremely cramped, we got the last seats in the back and could not really fit our legs, after 4 hours we got out with cramps in our back. The comfort does not reflect the price. It also took about 45 mins before we left the town - we were all sitting in the van while the driver was arranging paperwork.

Very good service, left Vang Vieng on time, pick-up from my hotel appreciated, recommended you ask your hotel to confirm the time and pick-up. At Vientiane drop-off there are tuk-tuk drivers waiting who will overcharge you. I recommend to take a little walk away from the drop-off and engage another tuk-tuk driver. There are plenty. Don't pay more than 30,000 kip to a central hotel or hostel.

Our pick-up time was informed to be at 09:00AM and we were informed to be ready at 08:30AM. However, without any further notice, we were picked up at 10:00AM (after 1,5 hours of waiting).

Pick up on Jumbo, drop off at bus station. Wait, wait. Mini van driver drove like an idiot, constantly overtaking on blind corners, answering his phone, impatient and dropped us all off in city centre with no communication. Do not recommend.

I was at Malany at 8:30am but due to having to pick up other passengers from their respective hotels, the mini van did not leave Vang Vieng until 9:40am. So, additional hour on the mini van just going around Vang Vieng. Pretty wasted time.

Air conditioning and seat belt didn't work. Extremely bunny ride with 15 people jammed into a mini van. Felt hot and nauseas the entire time

Air conditioning broke, way too hot on the bus to be comfortable. Bus left more than 1 hour late and stopped many times to check the engine. Not a great experience
