Can anyone advise how to get to Khon Kaen from Pak Chong? Also, how is it best to travel to Vientien from Khon Kaen?

Thanks

Train or bus from Pak Chong. From Khon Khen take a bus or train to Nong Khai then a bus over the bridge.

Thanks, is the Visa situation literally all done on arrival? Just bring photos and cash?

Trains in Thailand are very slow, so it is quicker to take a bus to Khorat and then get a bus to Khon Kaen.

You can get a Laos visa in Khon Kaen, but the consulate is outside of downtown, so it's much easier for you to do it at the border - just bring photos and cash.

if you get your visa in KK, very advisable if having the time, then you can take the international bus from downtown KK, to downtown Vientiane. doesn't get any easier or cheaper than that.

you are supposed to have the visa before hand / boarding the int'l bus, but IF they will sell you a ticket anyway, I would take the bus, again, easy and inexpensive, and worst scenario, they leave you at the border, as processing may take longer than they will wait.
