I'm a little hazy on the exact times, but it was about 3 hours from LP to NK in a private van. Then about 6-7 hours from NK to LN also in a private van. Public buses will take longer as you have to change and they stop more.

That is about right, Telly. I took a minibus two years ago and it was 3-4 hours between LP and NK, and 6-7 hours between NK and LN

Hi, took a minibus (8-9) people onboard and it took about 4 hrs each way. Tix booked at LP on sissanvong road.

Loved nong kiaw though. If the criteria is whether its worth it, it certainly is.

Both have karst formation, but I think NK is slightly more mountainious, especially if you cycle to the east. Both places offer kayaking opportunities, and caves to explore. The main advantage for me is that NK is smaller place, while VV is more touristy.

If you head to NK, consider maybe one or two nights for Muang Ngoi.
