Bus Travel Tips
Make friends with the driver. They usually know a lot about your destination and may even recommend which side of the bus to sit on to get the best views on the road between Vientiane and Luang Prabang!
Start sightseeing the minute your bus leaves the station. If you're on the night bus from Vientiane to Luang Prabang, get comfy and count the stars.
Buses are energy-efficient. Carrying a passenger over 100 kms by coach only takes 0.6-0.9 liters of gas. Compare that to the 2.6 liters required by high-speed train, 6.6 liters by airplane and 7.6 liters by gas-powered car, and it's clear that the bus is a more environmentally-conscious option for your bus transportation from Vientiane to Luang Prabang.
Make a music playlist for your bus ride from Vientiane to Luang Prabang, and enjoy the scenery to tunes from your own personal soundtrack.
