Seek advice: Vietiane Airport To Thakhek

Dear all,

I plan to go Thakhek next week. Reach Vietiane from Australia. What is the best way to get to Thakhek from Vietiane?

Any taxi available direct from Vietiane airport and how much does it cost?

Thanks in advance.

The most regular way is by bus from the southern bus station, which is 8km to the north of vientiane centre - buses leave every hour or so and take 5-6 hours. Cost about $10.

You can take a taxi from the airport but it will likely cost about $150-200. If none of the drivers already at the airport want to go to Thakhek, call for a taxi from town - yellow cabs are on 020 23004483

To answer your question: No there is no bus from the airport. I also doubt whether a taxi would be prepared to take you straight from the airport. It is a lengthy journey and would need to be arranged in advance as well as being expensive. I would suggest you take a bus.
