van Regional 14pax, Naluang (Naluang), Mar 7, 2020
It took over 2 hours longer than stated on the ticket, which wasn't helped by the flat tyres and the half an hour meal break the driver had in a shop that refused to serve any of the passengers.

Service was ridicously bad. Too much people for one van. Wanted to put 2 little children on one seat. No communication during stops and driver that wants earn quick money by letting extra people in the bus,

Bus was on time and got us where we needed to be but it was a pretty awful journey. The bumps were so bad we were jumping out of our seats, but I guess that’s not the bus company’s fault. Would still do it again for the price

Although the drive during the daylight hours was no where near as bad as some of the reviews we read, we found that the bus was not fit for driving at night!!! The headlights hardly worked and so the driver was going so slowly that the last 26km took nearly 2 hours!! He was blinded by trucks coming towards us and his only safe reaction was to stop until it passed. The minivan should not be on the roads.

The communication about the pick up was very bad. So we missed the bus we booked. We did go one later. The driver was al lot of time busy with bis telefone. That was very scarry because of the very bad and dangereus road. The minivan was old and the suspension also. It was the worst trip we ever made.

van Regional 14pax, Naluang (Naluang), Dec 12, 2019
The drive took approximately 4.5 hours with about a 30 minute stop for lunch/restroom. We were in a mini bus which was comfortable enough given that it was not full to capacity. All the luggage went into the back which left the small amount of leg room free for our legs. haha Our driver drove fast which made the bumps in the road worse. Not a problem for myself but my girlfriend does get motion sick and was appropriately prepared. Making sure you are as well will make the trip go smoother for yourself and everyone else who is along for the ride. The picture provided in the attachment we received in our confirmation was clear enough but you actually need to go around behind the building in the picture and up a slight incline. Its clear as day that its a bus station once you see it its just not visible from the road. All in all about as I expected after reading several reviews across the internet.

55 mn late at the beginning but I guess this is a country use. It take.6 hours to arrive to van vieng from luang prabang. Local cost much cheaper but price for quiet travel by that way.
