Overnight Sleeper Train from Bangkok to Laos

Getting to Laos by train is quite easy. And now, it’s relatively easier after the construction of the new international rail terminal at Thanaleng in Laos in 2009. Thanaleng train station is located 13 km from central Vientiane (Laos’ capital). You can now take the sleeper train from Bangkok-Nong Khai; then, upon arrival at Nong Khai train station, you will transfer to another train that will bring you to Thanaleng train station in Laos. From Thanaleng train station, you will take a tuktuk or mini van to bring you to central Vientiane.

Before the Thanaleng train station in Laos was constructed, the only option was to take the train from Bangkok to Nong Khai then, use a tuktuk and a bus to cross the border between Thailand and Laos. Actually, on this trip we tried both options and I’m really grateful to http://www.seat61.com/Laos.htm because the website had become my guide all throughout this trip.  It provided all the information I needed to travel overland from Bangkok to Laos. In return, I also want to share my experience in getting to Laos by train. There are several ways to get to Vientiane from Bangkok. You can take an airplane, bus or train. But I found the overnight sleeper train the most reasonable and convenient. It’s much cheaper than flying into Vientiane. Furthermore, you can save a hotel for a night.

So let me start from Suvarnabhumi Airport in Bangkok. There is an express bus from the airport that will take you to Hualamphong Railway Station. Hualamphong Railway Station is the main railway station in Bangkok. The fare costs 4.70 USD (Php 210). There are also airport express buses that go directly to Silom, Khao San Road  and Sukhumvit Road. The fares are all the same 150 baht. Just go to gate 8 and you will find the airport express buses there. The airport express bus is available from 5:30am-12 midnight.

We arrived at Hualamphong Railway Station after an hour. There are two options to get to Laos by train.

Option #1: This is what we did when we traveled from Bangkok to Vientiane

1) Take a train from Bangkok to Nong Khai. We boarded the train at Hualamphong Railway Station in Bangkok. Travel duration is around 12 hours. Our train left Bangkok at 8:00pm and we arrived at Nong Khai at 8:25am.

Boarding the train at Hualamphong Railway Station


1st Class Sleeper: 1,217 baht (38 USD ; Php 1,703)

2nd Class Sleeper: with air condition upper bed 708 baht (23 USD ; Php 991)

with air condition lower bed 778 baht (25 USD ; Php 1,089)

with fan upper bed 488 baht (16 USD ; Php 683)

with fan lower bed 538 baht (17 USD ; Php 753)

Seats (without bed) are much cheaper. For more info about the fares please check out http://www.seat61.com/Laos.htm

We tried the 2nd Class Sleeper with air condition.

2) Take the shuttle train from Nong Khai train station to Thanaleng train station, Laos. Upon arrival at Nong Khai train station, you just need to buy a train ticket to Thanaleng train station that costs 20 baht. Then, you’ll pass through the Thai Immigration and take the shuttle train to Laos. It’s very easy because you don’t need to leave the train station anymore. You only need to transfer to the shuttle train that will bring you to Laos. Travel duration is only 15 minutes.

3) Take a van or tuktuk from Thanaleng train station to central Vientiane. Upon arrival at Thanaleng train station in Laos, you will already see the Lao Immigration. Filipinos and other southeast Asian countries are visa-free in Laos for 30 days so we don’t need to pay anything. As for other nationalities, I think you can get a visa on arrival. After checking-in at the immigration, you will need to take a van or a tuktuk to bring you to central Vientiane. Thanaleng train station is located 13 km from central Vientiane. Taking a van costs around 150 baht. It’s better to share a van with other travelers. We arranged our transport with our travel agency so the travel agent fetched us at the train station.

After 30 minutes on the road, we finally arrived at central Vientiane.

Welcome to Vientiane, Laos!

Option  #2: This is what we did when we traveled from Vientiane back to Bangkok

1) Take a bus from Vientiane to Nong Khai. The bus station is located just across from Talat Sao mall in the city center. If you wanna try this, then you should check on the bus schedules earlier to make sure that you can leave Vientiane on time and catch up the sleeper train in Nong Khai. It’s better to arrive early at Nong Khai train station than to miss the sleeper train. The bus fare is around 17,000 kip (2.13 USD ; Php 93.50). This shuttle bus will stop at Lao immigration, cross the Friendship Bridge and stop at Thai immigration. After passing through the Lao and Thai immigrations, the bus will drop you at Nong Khai bus station in Thailand.

2) Take a tuktuk from Nong Khai bus station to Nong Khai train station. The shuttle bus will drop you at Nong Khai bus station and from there you need to take a tuktuk to get to Nong Khai train station. The tuktuk costs around 30 baht (0.95 USD ;Php 42) per person.

Tuktuk to Nong Khai train station

3) Take the sleeper train from Nong Khai train station to Bangkok. You can see the sleeper train upon arrival at the train station. I advice you to come here earlier prior to the train’s departure to make sure that you would not miss the train. Travel duration from Nong Khai to Bangkok  is 12 hours. This time we chose the 2nd class sleeper train with fan only.

  1. i love the photos of the railway in Laos! I love long train rides. Thank you so much for posting a detailed itinerary how to get to Laos from Bangkok. Oh and good job to your mom and sis. What an awesome trip to travel with your family. I will go to Laos soon!!!

    • I’m looking forward to your trip to Laos Pinoy Boy! I agree that the train ride is fun. It was a long travel but I enjoyed every moment of it. I love crossing borders and I always prefer it than flying into a country. I just love the feeling of crossing the border and stepping into a new territory. And yes, it feels great to travel with your loved ones. All the best to your trip! Looking forward to see the pics 🙂

      • PJ says:

        Hi is there a lot to see in Vientene? 🙂 will a one day or two days tour enough to explore Vientene? What about travelling from Laos to Cambodia? thanks. nice documentation kabayan!

  2. Bino Caina says:

    Thanks for the informative post Lovely. I remember when I was in Bangkok, I planned to take the train going to Singapore. Unfortunately, the trip schedule I inquired was fully booked… I ended up taking the bus trip for 48 hours. LOL! Good thing is I enjoy travelling overland. I hope to see the sunrise while inside a train… 🙂 Priceless!

    • Hi Bino! I didn’t know that there’s a train and bus from Bangkok to Singapore. And 48 hours by bus!? Wow! haha never ko pang na-experience yan. Parang ang sakit na sa pwet nun. hehe. It’s really a good thing that you like traveling overland. Actually, I like traveling overland too kasi I think that’s a good opportunity to see the local villages. So madami ka talagang makikita. And yup, watching a sunrise while on a train is indeed priceless. Hope you can try it too someday 🙂

  3. Jax L says:

    Hi there, I came across your blog while searching for information on getting into Laos. Yours is the most updated so far, and full of good information with pictures. Thanks!

  4. Jax L says:

    By the way, was the train with only fan comfortable? Did you find it safe overall? (in terms of luggage & personal belongings)

    • Yes, I found it safe and comfortable. But it depends on the person I guess. Honestly speaking, the train with air condition was much cleaner than the train with only fan. The train with fan is perfect for travelers who are on a tight budget and who are not so particular with cleanliness. If you wanna take it, I suggest you to get the upper bed because I saw some cockroaches near the lower bed. I took the upper bed and I was able to sleep there very well 🙂

      Regarding the safety of luggages, I think it’s safe because the train has some compartments near your bed where you can put your luggages. If you wanna make sure, you can bring your personal bag (such as money, passport etc.) with you inside your berth.

      All the best to your trip Jax! I hope you’ll enjoy your overland journey to Laos. Laos is a beautiful country and it’s really worth visiting. Should you have other questions, feel free to ask me. Have a safe trip! 🙂

    i just happend to open your blog last night, althought i come across seat61 yet yours is more simplier .our planned trip will be on june 5 via 5j vietnam,cambodia,thailand,lao,bkk phuket,malaysia,singapore and last is jakarta then back to manila ( a 14days trip to s7 countries). i only gather 3 sources then just come- what-may-procedure… but now with your hints parang 90%na di ako mangapa. tnx a lot.

    • You’re welcome Bechay! 🙂 It’s my pleasure to share information with fellow travelers because I’m a traveler myself and I know how stories of other travelers are very useful when visiting a place for the first time. Wow, ang saya naman ng trip nyo. Ang dami nyong bansang mapupuntahan. I’m sure this will be a great experience for you. Traveling around southeast Asia would always be one of the best experiences I’ve ever had in my life. Good luck to your trip and safe journeys! Thanks for the comment 🙂

  6. Jason says:

    I have had my Lonely Planet Laos for three years and finally, I am so determined to go! Thanks to your documentarion. Two years ago, I made sure to chek out Hualamphong while in BKK as I am dying to go to Vientiane. Great documentation once again! Thank you!

  7. Marielle says:

    I’ve been to SIngapore last May this year coz my son in working there, I wish to visit other Asian country in a budget w/ my husband & still can visit my son in SG on our birthday coming March. Is Laos worth visiting for? In your pics it’s an adventure.

  8. wow, really nice. i already planned on doing this trip last year up to the ticket prices and the place names, so i guess i’m quite familiar with what you have here, hehe. sadly, i ended up in hong kong and singapore haha.

  9. We are planing to do this trip from BKK to Vientian next January with my family. We have a one year old child, is it safe to take the child on the train?… Whats your advice?

  10. Raul says:

    very useful information – and with photos to boot ! im going to laos this weekend from bangkok. it will be my first time to travel outside of thailand by land so it will be a challenge. but im looking foward to the adventure just the same !! do you have a place (hotel, pension house, inn) in vientiane that is strategically located and reasonably priced? your advice will be much appreciated. thanks for sharing your experiences and generously giving travel tips. as a fellow pinoy itching for some travel adventures outside of our country, i hope my laos adventure will be as much fun as yours.

    continue with the good work !! (i.e. keep travelling- and sharing !!).


  11. jiro says:

    OMG! I’m off to explore the beauty of Laos on October 26, 2011. I can say that your blog is really helpful. I just wanted to know the exact schedule of the train from Laos to Bangkok because I’m planning to go back to Bangkok on the 28th of October. Thank you sooo much! 🙂

    • Hi Jiro! The shuttle train departs from Thanaleng Train Station, Laos at 5:00pm and arrive at Nong Khai train station at 5:15pm. The overnight sleeper train (Train 70) will then depart Nong Khai Train Station at 6:20pm and arrive in Bangkok at 6:25am. Enjoy your trip to Laos! Thanks for stopping by 🙂

      • jiro says:

        Thanks, I appreciate it. 🙂 Last thing that I would like to know is about the budget. Do you think $100 is enough for a one day tour in Laos? Thanks again! Have a great day! 🙂

        • Yes, that will be enough for a one day tour in Laos. Cost of living in Laos is pretty cheap just like other Southeast Asian countries. However, if you only have one day then you can only go around Vientiane because visiting other places like Vang Vieng and Luang Prabang would take long hours of travel. Vientiane is just a small city so it’s easy to go around and visit the temples around the city. You may also want to visit the Buddha Park which is a few kilometers from the city center. Have a safe trip! 🙂

        • jiro says:

          I’m all set! Excited to see the beautiful country of Laos. Thanks again for the tips! God bless you. 🙂 looking forward to your next destination. 🙂

    I was searching the internet about train travel from Bangkok to Laos and stumbled to your blog. Thanks so much for the detailed entries and the photos!

    I have one question for you. I am flying into Bangkok on November 30th and want to take the train the following night. I am wondering how to purchase my train ticket and if there is the need to book it while I’m still here in the states.

    I have seen one website that allows purchase of the ticket and then they mail the ticket to you, but I would prefer to just buy it at the train station. Please let me know any information that may help me.


    Fellow traveler Shannon Purves

    • Hi Shannon! 😀 When I went to Bangkok last January 2011, the online reservation for Thai train ticket was not working. I was afraid that train tickets for the overnight sleeper train to Nong Khai would be all sold out if we buy it just before the train’s departure. So what we did was we went to Hualamphong train station in the morning to buy our tickets. We went there around 10am, several hours ahead of the train’s departure which was at 8pm. We were able to get the 2nd class sleeper with ac. The 2nd class sleeper with fan were already all sold out during that time.

      While waiting for the train’s departure, we spent our time strolling around the train station. We went to Chinatown which is just a few kilometers walk from the train station.

      I have read that the Thai Railway’s website was revamped just recently and the online reservation (http://www.thairailticket.com) is back starting August 2011. You can now buy your ticket online 60 days before departure, down to a minimum of 2 days before departure. Please see http://www.seat61.com/Thailand.htm#How to buy train tickets when in Thailand The website provides direction on how you can buy your ticket online. After paying online by credit card, you can print out your own ticket and just get on the train on the day of your travel.

      If you need to get to Laos on a specific/fixed date, then buying your ticket online would be a great advantage. This would make sure that you can get on the sleeper train the following night after your arrival in Bangkok. FYI: The northbound (Bangkok to Nong Khai) overnight sleeper train is Train number 69 and the southbound (Nong Khai to Bangkok) sleeper train is Train number 70.

      All the best to your trip Shannon! I hope that you will have a wonderful trip in Thailand and Laos. Thanks for stopping by 😀

    Hello Lovely!
    Boy, am I glad to see this site (and I got to subscribe already), to get information on how to go to Laos in a very economical way. I just noticed that your point of origin was in Bangkok. My friend with her family and I are going on a trip to Vietnam to visit Cambodia, Laos and last stop to Hanoi before flying back to Manila. We are in a tight budget (particular me), so I try to search on possible and economical ways to visit each country. I was wondering if there’s a way going to Laos from Siem Reap w/o flying to BKK anymore? I’d love to experience taking the trains (whether 2nd class 3rd class), it’s just that, we have an elderly with us, so we might as well take a better transportation? We’ll try to find more time reading all the travelings you had from this site! good job! Please pray for our trip, this will be my 2nd time going on an Asian trip. Sana matuloy ito! God bless Lovely!

Living in this part of the world made me appreciate other races & also my being Filipino. Keep it up!

    Thank you for the information on your site. I followed your advise to a “T” on my travels from Bangkok to Vientiane in Feb 2012 and absolutely everything went the way you describe it. I enjoyed the entire trip and always felt I had everything under control because of your advise. I’m a 66 years old Canadian and you provided the tools so that I could have my perfect trip. I regret its taken me so long to thank you, but there is an old saying, better late than never. Thank you.

  42. John says:

    I’m going from Bangkok to Vientiane in late Nov 2012, and your extremely detailed information has made it very very clear. Think I’ll take the International Train as you did – just sounds easier for this American senior, age 69. I’ve been to Laos once before, but this will be my first time in Vientiane.

    Now I’m off to read the rest of your blog.

    thanks again

  43. Kaye says:

    Hi, detailed information is very helpful. I would like to ask if its feasile to tour bangkok and laos for roughly 4days.

  44. John says:

    “Hi, detailed information is very helpful. I would like to ask if its feasile to tour bangkok and laos for roughly 4days”

    I would say maybe 4 days for Bangkok, and at least a week for Laos. Bangkok is one of the most spread out cities in the world, and transport in Laos makes travel very slow.

I met some travellers as well as i was travelling alone, although we didnt follow half of your recommended itinerary because i met someone who suggested an even cheaper way to cross the border, i would still recommend your itinerary.

Thanks again and I am looking forward to your response.
