Vientiane Airport (Wattay Airport) to the city

Note: Updated Exchange rates info April 2022

The Vientiane airport is less than 10 minutes from the centre of the city.  The 2 main Wattay Airport Vientianeways to get there are via taxi or tuk tuk

At both the international and domestic terminals there is a taxi counter.  Here you prepay your journey and are assigned a

driver.  The standard rates to the city are US$7, 8 or US$9 – depending how far you are going.  This is displayed on the counter.

Alternatively you can walk out to the main road and flag down a tuk tuk.  The airport terminal is 200-300m from a busy main road, with plenty of traffic.  A tuk-tuk to the centre will depend on your negotiating skills but should be LAK20,000/30,000 but if you have no local currency it will be 5 USD.  A rule of thumb conversion rate in Laos is 11700 kip to the dollar.  Of course it will be a breezy ride.

Public buses do go along this road and the set fare is about 10,000 kip (but prices have changed)
