Three new international bus services are set to make journeys between Thailand and Laos more convenient.

 

The first that is expected to start this year is between Udon Thani airport, Nong Khai and Vang Vieng in Laos.

 

The 288 km trip will be once daily taking seven hours and costing 320 baht. A double-decker air-con bus will be used.

 

The service comes as agreement has been reached between the Thai national bus company and airport authorities.

 

Two further services to connect Thailand and Laos are also in the pipeline - these will connect Ubon Ratchathani and Pakse in southern Laos and Nan in northern Thailand with the city of Luang Prabang.

 

No time-frame was given for these two services in the Manager story.
