Vientiane - Post Report Question and Answers
Are local buses, trams, trains or taxis safe and affordable?
Taxis are safe although there are very few in town. Make sure you save the number of a reliable taxi driver. You shouldn't expect to be able to find a taxi or rickshaw waiting on any corner, like you can in many Asian capital cities. It is very difficult to move around without your own vehicle. - Jun 2020
I have only used taxis, and they are safe and affordable. - Oct 2018
There are buses, but I would not travel on them. I don't know of anyone who actually did. Tuks tuks were everywhere and can be cheap. - Jan 2014
