    No direct flights to Vang Vieng?

      There's no airport in Vang Vieng. You have to get a bus from either destination and the bus ride while very scenic, is on unsealed roads and slow as hell. Not sure what VV is like nowadays, but was loads of stupid fun when i was there 7 years ago. Also without the stupid drunk fun its a very scenic destination with lots of awesome bike rides and mountain climbs etc.

    Highly recommended Luang Prabang!

      We spent a few weeks around Laos, but it was a decade ago. Such a wonderful country with incredibly friendly people - though tourism was encroaching and I wonder if it has changed since then. My highlight was Luang Prabang and also go check out the Plain of Jars - just because it is such a mysterious site.

      •  

        Plain of Jars site 2 (forest and highland ridge) was one my fav places to visit in Laos.

        There is a airfield at Phonsavan (but I think flights are still only from Vientiane).

        The lively town of Phonsavan where the young ppl meet from nearby villages to throw rocks at each other. Amazing spectacle.

        Of course the waterfall outside Luang Prebang is probably the best in the world (google pics yourself to see). However I have heard that there has been recent tourisit works making it less attractive :(

    Any Laos experts? Where do you recommend going and when? TIA.

      Luang Prabang is nice. Old palace town. But it’s quite touristy. Then good old van Vieng is always nice for bike ride and white water rafting. Up north is nice with trekking and native communities.
      Highly recommended.

      Been to Luang Prabang twice now for a few weeks at a time. Exceptional town, a really nice spot to just relax for a few days. Kuang Si Falls are an obvious must-do, Tad Se Falls are also quite good in the rainy season (though more touristy) and you can combine a visit to them with some kayaking and mountain biking. The Mandalao Elephant Sanctuary is also a fantastic day outing, they rescue elephants from the local logging operations and rehabilitate them. No riding them obviously (please don't do that ever), but you get to wash them and feed them and it's a beautiful experience. If you'd like any restaurant or bar recommendations I'm happy to provide.
      Only stopped through Vientiane so can't comment much on it unfortunately.

      I would highly recommend visiting Vat Phou. It is located south of Laos. Though if you plan on going to Luang Prabang, it will be quite a travel. Staying at Pakse is a good stay if you plan on going. Vat Phou provides a nice hike up the mountain and observing the temples there is breathtaking.

  •  

    hmmm, I cannot see a Syd-Laos flight under $270 and return leg under $250. Anyone see anything better?

    edit: The sale kicks off today at 1pm (AEST) and finishes on Tuesday, January 22 at 1.59am (AEST) and is valid for travel before October 26, 2019.

    Lots of transit time in singapore

  •  

    Has anyone flown Scoot before? How does it compare to other (low cost) airlines?
    Can we expect exceptional service like on SingaporeAir?

    •  

      You'll get the same service as other low cost like Jetstar and Airasia, don't expect Singapore air quality. Nonetheless they fly pretty new planes to and from Australia (Dreamliner)

      •  

        airasia has better service, easier to get refunds and contact support.
        scoot is fine to fly with just be aware food is more expanisve and transit hotels in singapore are not budget friendly .

      •  

        AirAsia is actually quite good for the price. Still a budget airline, but by far the best budget airline I've flown with.

    •  

      I flew OOL - SNG return in 2012 on A330 and the new ATH - SNG - OOL route on Dreamliner August last year. Excellent experience both times, all flights departing/arriving on time, good in flight service and they even let me skip the massive queue in Athens to check my bicycle in. Only downside was a 19 hour layover at Changi, but hey, for a 210 euro base fair Europe to Aus, I wasn't complaining.

  •  

    I have flown scoot 10+ times, in a lot of ways they are similar to every other low cost airline but they fly new 787 dreamliners which imho is a way better experience to the normal a320's on other carriers. However scoot has merged with tigerair and all of their connecting flights to se asia will be on tigerairs a320 planes. Also their flights tend to land in singapore around midnight and usually makes the connections a little painful/long.

    This is awesome for my parents. They can fly directly rather than go through Bangkok.
