Vientiane to Pakse destination reviews

Bus Sleeper, Kriangkai Transport (Kriangkai Transport), Feb 10, 2020
No issues on the bus, allocated seats where fine with no one contesting. The bus was clean and for the most part pretty quite. We where dropped off in Chitpasong bus station in the middle of Pakse which was perfect and on time also.

There are a lot of buses on this route but no all of the buses are equal. This carrier was a newer bus with minimal stops. Clean and quick. The bed size is squishy and since there are no seat belts, you might end up on top of your bedmate if the driver takes a quick turn.

Clean bed, a little bit tiny for two people (make sure to book two tickets if you are travelling alone). No wifi

Really nice bus, nice not having to stop for the toilet as the bus had one. Smooth journey. However we had tickets for a bed and someone was in it. They swapped our ticket for a bed half the size which was not okay for two people. Only solved because a young girl swapped beds with us.
