We will be in Luang Prabang for 11 nights in June and want to visit Vieng Xai to see the Pathel Lao caves - probably staying in Vieng Xai for two nights. Any thoughts on the driving time from Luang Prabang in a mini van. I have used a driver before and would hire him for the 2-3 days rather than travel by local bus.
My map shows that there is an airport at Vieng Xai but Lao Airlines do not fly there. Any way to fly in from either LPQ or Vientiane.
Would it be feasible to fly to Xieng Khouang Airport from Vientiane & get a driver there to go to Vieng Xai?
Thanks for any help you can provide
