taxi/private car from veintiane to vang vieng

by felicity85

Hi there,

We are arriving in Vientiane at around 3:00pm and want to go to vang vieng straight away that day from the airport. I think from memory last time I was in laos that the buses from Vientiane to Vang Vieng leave Vientiane at around lunchtime? My friend and I are also wanting to pre-arrange transport so we dont have to worry about it when we get there. Does anyone know of any good companies to book a private car from Vientiane to Vang Vieng through? Or is is easy to get a taxi when we get to the airport? Are taxi's reliable going that distance? Anyone know how much it should cost? I have had a bit of a look on the internet but cant find any companies to book a transfer through. Any suggestions/information would be much appreciated! Thanks, Flick

You'll be able to get taxi from Airport to VV. For taxi men that's good way to earn money and there'd be hardly a person to say no.

I have couple of reliable contacts if you still want some specific ones - but one can speak Lao only and another can speal English and Lao. For the price you'll need to talk to them directly.

Also, for better information about bus departures from Vientiane and prices you should check travelish web site, they specialize in SEA:

Hi there,we are planning to visit Laos next year. Please give me some suggestions once you have finished your trip. I am planning to spend 6 days there then fly to Vietnam for the second time. I want to see Vietience and Luang Prabang and others if we have time.
Happy vacation!

You can spend 1-2 days (at least one full day is okay, too) in Vientiane to see temples and Buddha Park near friendship bridge. Then take bus/mini bus to Vang Vieng, spend 1-2 days there (you need one day for tubing/kayaking down the river, see some caves along the river and another day you can do more caves and cycling in countryside), or skip VV (it's 10 hrs ride Vientiane to Luang Prabang) and the rest spend in Luang Prabang. You can fly to Vietnam from there.

How to divide your time in Laos depends on your interests :)

Travel Tips for Vang Vieng

Choosing a Guesthouse

by DSwede

Upon getting off the bus, there is no shortage of tuk-tuk drivers and hotel staff hitting you up for business. Don't bother with any of them. The furthest hostel is probably no more than a 10 minute walk. And the ones that are further than 5 minute are not serviceable by a tuk-tuk anyway (since you may have to cross a foot bridge). Nearly all places have established a laundry service of 5000 kip/kg. The hostels are so plentiful that their competition puts them out of business almost constantly. Saw some for 3,500kip/night (shared bunks) and others with up to 7 beds for 150,000 kip. Honestly speaking, walk to those that are on the small islands (over the foot bridges) for ~85,000 kip/night or for those north of Orchid Hotel with a nice river view for ~50,000kip.

Not much here

by Maximilian21

I expected something different from the town being a popular stop off spot. However, there really isnt much here, other than some guesthouses and dirt roads. I was not complaining though because it really us just a great place to chill.
You will probabaly notice that there is more backpackers than locals living in the town, almost as if it revolves around the backpacker crowd.

Kayaking with TCK advanture tours

by Ianchen

TCK seems to be the cheapest agency to offer trips on the Nam Sang. For a full day trip, starting with the elephant cave, tubing into a cave nearby, lunch and kayaking I paid 90000 kip. Compared to other agencies that is quite a bargain, as they offer exactly the same package for about 30 US$! Don't pay more just because it says "eco" or "green". There is no difference between the tours, they are all the same.
They provided a free drybag and lifejackets, and i could not see any difference concerning security measurements.

The Vang Vieng restaurant scene

by li-anne about ALL the restaurants down town village Vang Vieng

All the bars serve the same food (like pizza's, noodles, chicken schnitzels, and so on)
They have those high tables on which you ly down. Just take your shoes off, and settle down the cosy and comfortable cushions, and relax.
It feels just like home......
Some people never leave the bars, they ly down and watch the tv for the whole day it seems.
We thought it was something special for a night it is OK.
But to do this for a whole week would go too far. You can order here what ever you like, and it doesn't matter in which restaurant you are;
they all serve the same food for the same price.
The video's that you can watch are about all the same; like old friends-series.
Some of the restaurants try to get more people by showing the newest movies on tv, there illegal copies, that are sold also in the local shops.

The food itselve itn't bad at all. And sometimes it's OK to relax for one night and watch the good oldies on tv.
You meet many, many other backpackers in this area. But the whole thing is that this scene has nothing to do with travelling.
It could have been some town in Europe as well.

former air field

by picek

First thing you'll notice in Vang Vieng when you come from Vientiane direction is that large remain of former air field. Nowsadays airplanes no longer land there because road connection is much better-paved and safer; however it serves many uses like being pick-up and bus stop, place for weddings and local fairs, and more dangerously - place for some individulas to practice their driving and speeding throughout the area. Those are probably aware of many crates in asphalt.

Other times local children will play games there and learn riding a bike, or play football in evenings. Next moment cows will be herded from one place to another crossing the strip. In mornings and afternoons or during the lunch break school kids will pass the air strip again. Every now and then local bus will drop small crowd of backpackers who will then walk through it into town. Sometimes dogs and cats will be chasing and playing with one another and/or try to mate. Actually it's a place full of activites and interesting to watch. But imagine how many other things Vang Viengers could have in the place instead of that vast field of asphalt.
