There are several ways of getting to Luang Prabang, depending on how much time you have, and from where you are coming.
From Bangkok , Direct
- Bangkok Airways flies non-stop to Luang Prabang, the time table varies according to the season, at certain times of year they have two flights a day. During the high season they do get very busy, so book early. They are a quality airline, with a good record in the region. See their web site www.bangkokair.com for flight times; it is also possible to book on line.
From Bangkok via Vientiane
- Both Thai Airways and Laos Airways operate daily non-stop flights to Vientiane ; from there it is possible to take a direct flight up to Luang Prabang. Though Vientiane is not exactly “The Paris of the East”, that some guide books say it is, it is worth a visit and does have some beautiful temples and excellent shopping. If you wish to spend sometime there we can give you advice on hotels in various price ranges.
From Bangkok to Vientiane via Udon Thani
- A cheaper alternative is to fly with one of the new, no-frills airlines that have sprung up recently, Airasia and Nokair to Udon Thani, some 55 kilometers from the Laos border. Thai Airways also flies there. From Udon Thani you can either take the air-con coach or a private taxi, to the border at Nong Khai.
