Goodbye Luang Prabang…..

Goodbye Luang Prabang…..

A very relaxed morning, before our flight to Vientiane, the hotel organised courtesy transport in form of a tuk tuk, on arrival we got picked up in the hotel car, on departure it is a tuk tuk!

The airport check in and security was a breeze no issues at all.

The walk to the plane

On arrival into Vientiane as we exited the airport we saw a monk whom we saw earlier having a cigarette. Kind of strange to see that. For transport you have a number of options for transport, courtesy bus from the hotel which is usually chargeable, taxi from the airport to the centre, cost USD$8 or walk 200 yards away from the airport and get a tuk tuk for 30,000 kip (GBP£2.50) of course we did the latter!

Negotiating the rate

On the way to the city centre

The tuk tuk dropped us off about 10 minutes away from the hotel due to language issues! We thought he knew where we wanted to go…ah well good chance to walk around and see a bit of the city centre.

We booked the following hotel
Salana Boutique Hotel
Chao Anou Rd, Vientiane
T: + 856 21 254 254

Once in a while you just book the suite, especially as we got a good deal!
