My wife and i live in KL and have traveled to most SE Asia locations ... except Laos. I have a 5-day 'weekend' (thanks for those Malaysian holidays) and quickly bought tickets to Vientiane for 4 days. I am now trying to build out the trip. We would like to eventually visit Luang Prabang ... is this the trip? I thought I could fly VT>LP>VT, but don't see any connections on normal website checks. I also see the drive seems to be onerous (and I have to return to VT to fly home).
My questions really are 1) are flights available that I'm just not seeing, and 2) even if I could fly, is 4+ days enough to see both places anyway... I'm thinking (hoping) that there's enough in VT to keep us occupied 4+ days and can enjoy the Laos experience (with day trips, etc.).
