In the morning I wandered around but ended up into internet because the town doesn't have really interesting sight, unauthentic and boring. The other 2 town Vang Vien and Luang Prabang supposed to be exciting than Vientiane. The hype from most travellers Vang Vien is the place to go and Luang Prabang under Unesco World Heritage Site has to be seen. Indecisive which town to go first. Vang Vien only 3 hours away and Luang Prabang 8 hours. The Guesthouse owner kept on pushing for Luang Prabang leaving the next day that I would be staying another night at his guesthouse. I was bored and couldn't wait to leave Vientiane so I bought ticket for Vang Vien. Cost me 60000 Lao Kip. shitload of zero.
Later I checked out and went for lunch.
Back to the guest house, wating after waiting the schedule bus leaving at 2 pm hasn't arrived.
Finally a tuk-tuk fecth me up to where the actual bus was. Arriving at the bus I felt being conned, just like any peculiar horible story among travellers in Laos. The promised VIP aircond bus was broken, 50 years old bus with broken fan inside. And it was already filled up with 20 years old American Gapyearer marking 2 seats for one. Did you all pay for 2?So I walked up the aisle untill the back seat. It was boilng hot inside . The rich brats got 2 seats for one, bigger legroom, an Aussie couple seating next to me complained how unfair it was. Soon afterward one by one passegers filling up the empty seats and its fuly seated.
