In an effort to interconnect Laos with its neighbor countries we continue our process of expansion by adding international flights from Vietnam and Cambodia operated by Vietnam Airlines. This move follows our previous announcement of international routes between Vietnam and Cambodia by air and by road.
Connecting with Vietnam, Vietnam Airlines operates the routes Hanoi to Luang Prabang (baolau.com/s/Hanoi/Luang-Prabang), Hanoi to Vientiane (baolau.com/s/Hanoi/Vientiane) and Ho Chi Minh to Vientiane (baolau.com/s/Ho-Chi-Minh/Vientiane) code-shared with Lao Airlines.
Connecting with Cambodia, Vietnam Airlines operates the routes Phnom Penh to Vientiane (baolau.com/s/Phnom-Penh/Vientiane) and Siem Reap (baolau.com/s/Siem-Reap/Luang-Prabang) code-shared with Cambodia Angkor Air.
Vientiane is the capital and largest city of Laos, situated on the banks of the Mekong River near the southern border with Thailand. The city contains important temples and monuments such as the Pha That Luang, a gold-covered Buddhist stupa, the most important national cultural symbol and very popular among tourists.
Luang Prabang was the ancient capital of the former Kingdom of Laos. The old town centre is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site, thanks to its numerous Buddhist temples and monasteries. It is also an outstanding example of the fusion between traditional Lao wooden houses and European architecture, reminiscence of its past as a French colony.
The small city has both historical and natural sites. Some favourite side trips for tourists in Luang Prabang include the Kuang Si Falls, the Tat Sae Waterfalls and Pak Ou Caves.
With the integration of international flights operated by Vietnam Airlines, Cambodia Angkor Air and Lao Airlines we bring Vietnam and Cambodia closer to Laos.
