so im doing a trip next week and i havent booked anything as yet- apart from my flights from bne to KL. at this point im doing Koh Phi Phi and cambodia and laos and bangkok. at this point most of it im ok with to arrange when i get over there but just curious about the leg of my trip from laos to bangkok. whats the best way to get there? how long is it going to take via bus? Somebody told me that they did an overnight train from bangkok to chiang mai then another 7 hour bus ride to laos... please tell me there is an easier!!!
ps any suggestions you have on SEA would be greatly appreciated. spending a month there and wanna get the most i can out of it! :) happy travels

The quickest route from Bangkok to Laos is probably by plane (Bangkok Airways and Thai Airways), but this option will also be the most expensive. I got a cheap flight from Bangkok to Chang Mai and then took a 5-hour bus to Huang Xai. It's actually quite a nice journey and Chaing Mai is also a really great place to visit on the way, so iI found it worth the long way.

I took a night train from BKK to Chang Mai and then a bus to Lao border.
On the way back I took a plane from Pakse to BKK -150 US.
I was there in February.
