Liftshare anyone - Private car hire Luang Prabang to Vang V

Anyone interested in sharing the cost of a private car & driver from LP to VV?

There are 2 of us & we'll be heading to VV on March 13/14/15th but we don't really fancy chancing a bus or minivan & can't afford a whole car to ourselves...........

We're flexible on time/dates at the moment but don't get into LP till March 10th.

In the meantime, any hints on where to hire a driver in LP would be great

Hi there,

I hope you have an awesome time in LP and VV.

To find a driver, ask at your hotel or guesthouse as a starting point. All along the streets of Luang Prabang, there are tour agencies you can ask. They will give you quotes and may even help find someone to share the van with. You should have no trouble.

Enjoy!

Hi

I don't know how long you'll have there but I've got a van from the 24th. I will be coming from a village about 2 hours north of Luang Prabang and will be heading to Vang Vieng that morning, probably passing Luang Prabang a little after 10:00am...

Thanks for the info K - we're very much looking forward to it.

Maneki - We'll be out of the country by the 24th but thanks for the kind offer. Hope you have a great time in Laos.

I live in Luang Prabang and know a good driver. He's friendly, reliable, doesn't drink! He speaks good English and is a SAFE driver! His name is Mr Pong and his number (in Laos) is 02055873083. He has an air con mini van in good condition.
