We are planning our trip to Southeast Asia this year. We would travel to Laos from Thailand.
In Laos we would visit Vientiane, Van Vieng, Luang Prabang. (open to anymore suggestions )
After that we want to go to Cambodia and visit Stung Treng, Kratie,Phnompenh, Kampong Chhang,Siem Reap and Banteay Chhmar (again open to any suggestions) before going back to Thailand
I wonder how to get to Cambodia (preferably Stung Treng) from Vientiane.
Your suggestion is appreciate.
Firstly, If you want to go Cambodia after Laos, I recommend that you should visit Luang Prabang, Van Vieng and then Vientiane (Luang Phrabang-Van Vieng-Vientiene is one of the popular iteneraries) because you can transfer to Combodia by taking flight from Vientiane. You can use Laos airlines with domestic routes are US$70 + taxes, international are US$120 + taxes . After going to Pakse, you take the bus to go to Stung Treng.
If you want to avoid flight, you can choose Laos-Combodia Bus and you have to change the bus over twice time: one in Pakse and another in Kampong Cham and then stop in Stung Treng.
