I kindly ask you some update on the bus service from Suvarnabhumi airport to Nong Khai, such as timetable and if it's still avaiable, the only thing I know is number of bus is 825. I'm right now in Thailand but I'll be doing a visa run in Laos so I'll be likely spending a couple of days there. Thank you
Yes i agree, there is only one a day and sometime ago when i arrived at Suvarnabhumi i was intending to visit Laos, but i arrived at the crack of dawn and did not want to wait the whole day there so i caught the bus to early morning bus to TRAT and visited Cambodia instead.
There is a photo of schedule board at the Bus Terminal Suvanabhumi.
There is a Direct Bus from Bangkok to Vientiane by Transpost Co Ltd using standard A/C Bus for 900 Baht/11 Hour, the departure time is at 8 PM, check when you are in Bangkok or if uou have any friend who can read it for you the schedule its in Thai home.transport.co.th/en/tcl-...">home.transport.co.th/en/tcl-...;
And by the way you may need to apply the visa at the Thai embassy in Laos as I don't see Mexican nationals eligible for getting it on arrival? even if you do, it will be 15 days by entering land borders and the tourist visa on arrival is non extendable
IF you are here in BKK anyway-forget that airport bus, simply go to the Mochit busterminal and find plenty of buses to Nong Khai- early morning or from about 19-21.00 for overnite. The VTE bus is always sold out-thus not fit for late arrivals-and you must have a prearranged Lao visum of you are not ASEAN
There used to be people always propagating the train; Ok, if you want it, but just 1 with real sleepers- 20.00 from main station and much slower as bus-but with beds.
