Vientiane to Udon Thani bus journey

by vuzu

Hi,I will be taking a flight from Udon Thani to BKK next month end.
My flight will be 8.55am. When is the earliest bus service from Vientiane to Udon Thani? Wondering would I have enough time to reach the airport in Udon Thani to catch the morning flight to BKK? Will it take long to clear the custom at the Laos and Thailand border?

Regardless of the time the bus comes in the morning...I would just go to Udon Thani a day a head of schedule so that crossing the broder is not a problem and if there is a delay in border crossing that there will be ample time to get to the airport. I always find that in a bus, the crossing is time consuming and imagine if just one person doesn't have their papers in order.At the same time many workers and trucks cross the border early morning that can delay you.. Sleep in UT is cheap, so think about it, UT city is just as exciting as Vientiane

Hi,

here's the schedule if you ment cross-border public bus to UT from Vientiane:

According to it, first one leaves at 7 am, and that's little too late for you to catch the morning flight.

As suggested above, better spend one night in Udon - well, unless you get private transport from Vientiane, but you'll need to get up very early.

Guys, thanks so much for your reply. I think I will probably spend one night in Udon Thani or get an evening flight from Udon Thani to BKK.
Thanks.

Travel Tips for Vientiane

if only one place...

by picek

... deserves your attention while in short stay to capital, it would be Wat Sisakhet I believe. Why, then? Its grounds are home of thousands of Buddha statues, placed in niches by wall and worshipped in temple - it's place unique to Vieng Chan, which somehow avioded turbulent history during Siamese occupation when other buildings were gone in fires or got seriously damaged.

One of the most significant wats of capital was built by King Anouvong in 1815 and was used by Lao elite, 'high class' then whom used to come to temple to pay tribute to Siamese. Anouvong tried to unite Lao and their teritorry, for which was martyred and later he died. The boards in front of the wat main entry will further and in detail explain philosophy of this religious architecture and it's read most interesting - if you are interested. It's place rich in detail and color - and greatest number of visitor are local Lao Buddhist though significant numbers of 'outsiders' will visit out of curiousity or for deeper search - reason known to themselves only.
We like to come here too, when we seek silence in its enclosures and answers to aspects of local beliefs. Among those thousands Buddhas - they all may be look the same, but are not.
Behind, the Naga comes to life during festivals and ceremonies when water from hers mouth will purify all what has become dirty during the year - one of the most respected acts in a year of devoted believer.
So interesting that place is!

Where? At the main intersection to Lan Xang Avenue with Setthathirat road, next to Presidental palace and Ho Prakeo temple.

There's about 1 USD entry fee for foreign visitor.

Sunset over the Mekong

by SirRichard

One of the best places to enjoy the sunsets in Vientiane is by the riverside. There are here a group of terraces where you can have a fruit shake for 0,30 USD while you enjoy the view of this mighty river, so broad here in Vientiane...

Old Coffee shop of Laos-Chinese

by l_joo

Old Coffee shop of Laos-Chinese is where I enjoy the coffee 5000kip per glass (come with a glass of tea). They serve coffee together with free tea, you can drink the tea as much as you can. The young lady that served us coffee is a Laotian-Chinese, she said her family lived in Laos in the last four generations. She can speak a little broken Chinese Mandarin that she learnt from school.

Vientiane mosque (only one)

by l_joo

Yes, Vientiane mosque (only one), I saw this in the town center at the main tourists street. I went into the mosque to inspect the interior in near disbelief. At night I saw an old man, Indian muslim man, he walked to a Pakistani restaurant, with his white muslim hat on. I saw him sitting alone inside the restaurant, only one customer that evening.

alms for the monks

by richiecdisc

One of the more interesting sights of Vientiane are the saffron robed monks that you will undoubtedly encounter on your travels there. They walk around the various cities looking for alms. This tradition benefits both monks and those who give them sustenance. The idea is that by waking up each morning with the thought of giving, one is more at ease with the world through their generosity. So, you will see monks making their rounds each morning and countless shop owners waiting to give them some offering.
