A fairly large proportion of bus and minivan services that you can book through travel agents in Vang Vieng town depart from Vang Vieng South Bus Terminal. Ticket prices are generally 20,000 to 30,000 Lao Kip less if you buy the ticket directly from the bus station, and make your own way there to board your bus. Some people prefer to go to the bus station independently as it means that they are not waiting around at their guesthouse or hotel for a tuk-tuk to take them the short distance to the bus station.
