Sleeper Bus in Laos: The Most Affordable Way to Travel from Pakse to Vientiane

When I did my research long before I started my Indochina trip, I figured that Laos’s infrastructure and transportation might be a bit challenging compared to its neighboring countries.

I came across an article that outlined their long journey with a bus in Laos, which they didn’t thoroughly enjoy. Reading it made me second-guess whether I should take a long overland journey from Cambodia to Vientiane or Vang Vieng, so I decided to go to Pakse from Siem Reap instead.

While I only get a chance to travel around Pakse city center in Champasak, I was quite happy with my decision to stop there before heading to Vientiane. It gave me some time to travel slow and adapt to Laos’s daily life since I have to admit that Laos is slightly different compared to Cambodia or Vietnam.

Review Bus from Cambodia to Laos: How to Travel from Siem Reap to Pakse With Asia Van Transfer

I always love road trips!

And ever since I started planning my Indochina trip, I knew that I wanted to use either bus or train to get me from one place to another.

That, until I googled about the bus from Siem Reap to Vientiane that I found out the number of border services from Cambodia to Laos isn’t as many options like those from Cambodia to Vietnam.

After researching the options that I could take from Siem Reap to somewhere in Laos, I decided to make a stopover in Pakse. Honestly, when I decided to do that, it was actually my first time hearing about Pakse, so I barely knew anything about where to go or what to visit there.

However, I figured stopping by Pakse is an excellent way to go if I want to go across the border from Cambodia to Laos by land. I could stay for a night or two, and then continue my trip to Vientiane later. So I did.

Traveling by bus has its positive sides. If you travel from Calgary to Banff on holiday with friends (especially when you are young), a bus ride can be a kind of adventure.

Buses for traveling to distant destinations are comfortable, spacious, and have a range of performances that add to their comfort.
