Driver Chiang Rai to Ban Houayxay + Transfer Pakse-Don Khon

Hi,

We will travel to Laos in a couple of weeks.

There are two things we are looking for:

* We are looking for a transfer from Chiang Rai airport to Ban Houayxay (or at least to the Laos border) - we will miss the last bus at 5pm as our flight is arriving only at 6:30pm. Does anyone have an idea where we could arrange a driver?

* We would also need a transfer from Pakse airport to Don Khon and return.

Many thanks!

Money talks. Taxi at both airports will likely take you where you want to go for the right price. Chiang Mai airport to the bridge at Chiang Khong after hours around 2000 baht. Similar price (500.000LAK) Pakse airport to Don Khong. Get out your wallet and negotiating skills on arrival. Note: Laos goes by a different clock, so don't expect everything to work to your schedule ;-)

The bridge is open until 10pm but the regular shuttle bus stops at 6pm. After that you need to find your own way.
