New Laos High Speed Train to Benefit Tourists

By: Bamboo Travel
BASINGSTOKE, U.K. - Feb. 6, 2023 - PRLog -- The new high-speed train through Laos, officially launched in December 2021, runs from the Chinese border all the way to the capital Vientiane.

Few places are better for a quick escape than Laos, a tranquil land with stunning scenery, friendly locals, great food and an ambling pace of life.

The brand-new train line has opened-up travel in Northern Laos in a way never seen before in the landlocked country, and journeys which previously took the best part of a day, driving along dusty roads, can now be completed in a couple of hours, while you relax and enjoy the magnificent scenery whizz past from the comfort of your air-conditioned carriage.

Key stops along the train line include Laos' tiny and welcoming capital city Vientiane; picturesque riverside Vang Vieng; the eternal travellers' favourite Luang Prabang; and Oudomxay - the gateway to the remote villages and beautiful scenery of Muang La.

Laos has already reopened its main tourist areas to international visitors, so you do not have to wait to try a journey on the new train line for yourself.

The new train link can be incorporated into several of Bamboo Travel's recommended itineraries, including the popular 11-day Escape to Laos (

The tour starts in the relaxed capital city of Vientiane, then travels overland to Vang Vieng for some kayaking on the picturesque Nam Song River.

Then, board the high-speed train for the 58-minute journey to Luang Prabang, for time to discover its rich heritage – a journey that previously took five to six hours by road!

Other highlights of the trip include an adventure on the Nam Ou River, exploring isolated river villages from a privately chartered boat, and a full-day's trekking in Muang Ngoi.

The holiday costs from £2,450 per person based on a shared room for departures in May.  The price includes international flights, all transportation, eight-nights' B&B, sightseeing/activities and a guide.
