Hello every one.
We are planning on flying- at the beginning of November- from Bangkok to Laos, visiting Vientiane, XK (the plain of jars), Luang Prabang,. We hope to fly from L.P. or Vientiane to Kun Ming-China without having to go back to Bangkok.
I have also read the warnings re: Laos Airlines web site (in Paris) vs the real
Lao Airlines although I have to say Laos replied very quickly to my inquiry whereas I am still awaiting news from Lao Airlines.
1) We shall arrive in Bangkok on November 1st. Would it be too risky to wait until then to buy tickets on Lao or Thai Airways as there does not seem to be many flights between each point. We are planning to spend 2 days in BKK to search for flights. Any suggestions re: reliable travel agencies, please?
2) It looks like there is only one (1) flight a week, on Sunday, from Vientiane or L.P to the Plain of Jars? Any suggestions please for an alternative mean of transportation and the time this would take?
3) Is it easier/shorter flight/cheaper to fly from L. Prabang or from Vientiane to Kun Ming?
4) which is the best option to go between Kun Ming back to BKK? I realize this is a Vientiane forum, but all suggestions are welcome!
Thank you for your help.
