Vientiane to Pakse destination reviews

Bus Sleeper, Kriangkai Transport, Feb 10, 2020
No issues on the bus, allocated seats where fine with no one contesting. The bus was clean and for the most part pretty quite. We where dropped off in Chitpasong bus station in the middle of Pakse which was perfect and on time also.
Bus Sleeper, Kriangkai Transport, Jan 27, 2020
There are a lot of buses on this route but no all of the buses are equal. This carrier was a newer bus with minimal stops. Clean and quick. The bed size is squishy and since there are no seat belts, you might end up on top of your bedmate if the driver takes a quick turn.
Bus Sleeper, Kriangkai Transport, Dec 19, 2019
Clean bed, a little bit tiny for two people (make sure to book two tickets if you are travelling alone). No wifi

Things to remember: When travelling by van with huge luggage buying a separate seat for your suitcase or backpack is a good idea. Do not expect there is a roomy luggage compartment in a van - there is actually none and your fellow passengers are unlikely to appreciate your luggage stuck under their feet, alas.
