Bangkok to Luang Prabang

Bangkok to Luang Prabang


Thank you for reading. We are looking to travel from Bangkok to Luang Prabang and are open to suggestions about the best way to go...train, bus, boat, or air. If boat or air, which companies are best and which are cheapest?

Thank you so much!

Easiest way is with Bangkok Air. They fly direct and are cheap and if you book in enough advance time then they are the cheapest of the lot.

Laos Air also fly but we've heard that they are dodgy so we tend to give them a miss.

Otherwise, it is a bus from Bangkok to Vientiane and then by bus up from there.

Have fun - LP is wonderful!

Hi Katie try here for air for Discovery Airpass http://www.bangkokair.com/en/airpass.php

I used this for my last trip.

Or here for trains http://www.seat61.com/Thailand.htm.

Boats I only hear horror stories so don’t know if it’s possible.

I also avoid land boarder crossings in Asia.

Any idea on time between Bangkok-Vientienne? And from Vientiene to LP?
