From Thanaleng railway station to Vientiane by van
Thanaleng railway station, Vientiane
Vientiane to Vientiane Airport destination reviews
van Regional 14pax, Soutchai Travel, Dec 7, 2019
My sister and I traveled from Vientiane to Vang Vieng and we were not pleased with Soutchai Travel. First off, they forgot to pick us up from our hotel which I had confirmed with them twice. So after waiting 1.5 hours they finally answered their phone after 6 calls and came and got us. Since they hadn’t picked us up we missed our connecting vehicle at the bus station. So we were shoved into a van that was already FULL. It was the most uncomfortable 4 hours and they didn’t have room for our luggage either. There were live chickens under my seat (which was broken by the way) and they seemed as unhappy as I was! The personnel didn’t say anything to us and never apologized.

We had pleasant trip with good bus and driver

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.

Follow time accordingly, no problem whatsoever, bus is comfortable

Bus arrived a little late but the entire bus trip was ok.

Prompt and punctual. We got to Vientaine on time. The ride was also smooth and the driver drove safely.

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

Picked us up which is always good. The luggage hold door came open while we were driving which wasn’t very reassuring but we don’t think anyone lost luggage

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

Comfortable ride, made one stop half way through for bathrooms. The type of bus depends on the number of people riding, so beware! Could be anything from a coach (what we had— was very pleasant!) to a minivan (which is fine, just a little less legroom)

Too many people and not enough room. Had to wait 30 mins for a change to the tyre before we even left.

We booked a journey from Vientiane to Vang Vieng. The pick up point was at a train station 30 mins from the city center. We paid 20 usd for a taxi to the train station, where we were picked up by a mini van and driven back to Vientiane! When we got to the bus office there was a sign advertising tickets for a bus for 6 USD each, while we had paid 15 USD. The whole journey was a big waste of time and money.

Safe and comfortable trip. Bus started to leak air half way through the trip though but luckily the driver could fix it with a piece of plastic bag.

Good ride, decent bus and driver. Made it in a little less than 4 hours.

The trip was booked with 12Go and Malany. I went half an hour before departure to the office (as it was written on the ticket). At the departure time, a lady from the office showed me the way to a tuktuk, which got us six travelers to the minibus. The minibus departed half or 45min later than written, but that seems usual here. The minibus was fully booked, the driver drove fast but save, we made a few stops for toilet and food. At all, the bus arrived in vientiane 45 min later than expected, but as I wrote, that seems to be normal here.

Everything was handled well and organized. There was a car accident that made the travel time 2 hrs longer. But it was comfortable. The AC didn’t work that well so it was really hot. Beautiful drive.

I got two tickets from 12Go at the same time in Laos. After the first one I regretted it (bus didn't exist). So this time I went to the bus stop the night before to confirm. This time there was a bus (good start) but they only just put my booking down when I spoke to her. If I'd left it to the day of it would probably have been full. Not sure how 12Go inform the company of a booking. It's easy (and cheaper) to organise a transport when you get to vang vien. Don't bother booking with 12Go. I'm sure they work well in Thailand but not in Laos. The actual drive was fine. A bit of a crazy driver but that's what you expect in this part of the world. Go direct with Malany when you get there.

It was not easy to find your counter immediately after immegration.

Reckless driver appeared tired unwell....noticed similar hazardous drivers in larger buses. Overtaking in face of oncoming traffic and on blind corners...felt very unsafe.

It was a slow start but then again you shouldn’t be expecting services here to be prompt. We picked up everyone from there hotels and each time the drive climbed up on top of the van to load the luggage and tied down. Once on the road, the drive move fast. The roads aren’t the best but they work. Just sit back and enjoy the scenery or nap.
