Don khong to udon ratchathani


We are currently in the south of Laos and have tickets on the night train from udon r in a few days.

We will be staying on Don khong, and are trying to find out the best way of getting to the train. Has anyone got the international bus from Pakse before? Does the half three bus get you there in time for the train? Is there a simple way of getting to udon r from don khong? A

transfer by taxi is v expensive.

So far we are thinking local bus to pakse then change to international bus.

Thank you

As you say, you will have to get to Pakse using local bus or minibus, and take the international border bus to Ubon from there. There is no direct service from 4000 islands to Ubon.

I am doing the same journey ( though taking a plane rather the train) and my understadning it will be tight getting from the 4000 islands to Ubon the same day, to get the train in the evening. I read somewhere that the international bus leaves at 9.30 and 3pm. I think the 3pm bus might be too late for the train.

Personally I plan to head to Pakse the day before to avoid any hassle, and head to Ubon the following day to ensure I am not missing my plane.
