Four easy ways to get to Luang Prabang Laos

Fly from Bangkok or other major hubs
It is fairly easy to get to Bangkok from most parts of the world and from there, Luang Prabang is only an hour away. The flight is expensive but no another route beats this one when it comes to efficiency and convenience.

Slow boat from Houeisay
Entering Laos from the north, board the slow boat destined for Luang Prabang. Bring cushions, snacks, drinks and probably a good book if you aren’t an experienced daydreamer and float down the Mekong. The boat will stop in Pakbeng for the night.

You will be glad you took the slow boat, but more for bragging rights (“Oh, you flew? Well I came on the Mekong…”) than actually doing it. The beautiful scenery, coupled with the noise of the engine sadly gets old after a couple of hours.

Bus from the south
The cheapest way to get to Luang Prang is grabbing the bus from South of Luang Prabang, for example Vientiane. The sleeper bus isn’t terrible but the standard (sitting) one is, so make sure which one you buy tickets for. Bring a music device, a scarf and motion sickness pills if you are prone to that. The mountain roads are winding and the experience will hopefully be the closest thing to being in a mixer you will do.

This alternative is the same as the bus, only you will sit in a mini-van and travel during the day. Some prefer that seeing as the can enjoy the beautiful landscape, where as others thinks it’s a waste of wake hours.
