Going to Cambodia.

Lao airlines to PP if you dont mind a trip to vientiane, short flight to, It continues on to ho chi minh , cost about $200 last time i went but that might of been a promo, Also bear in mind its cheaper to buy lao airlines tickets from an agent rather than online for some obscure reason.

I thought the original plan was to link vientiane with Kunming . vientiane /nongkhai and on to bangkok and beyond , but that all seems to have been put on hold , Looks like savan /Lao Bao , if they get there A into G, things happen pretty slow here though , im not going to hold my breath
