BY BUS FROM VIENTIANE
The first bus to Kasi start 8.30 am from the northern bus station. To get to the northern bus station from Talat Sao – Central bus station just catch a bus from there ( 5000 kip every 30 min. )
If you don’t find a bus to Kasi, you can take any bus going through that road ( Luang Prabrang, Xieng Khouang or Luang Nam Tha, for example, almost all the buses going north ) . Ask to go down at ” THANG BAENG BAN CHIENG” about 10 km before Kasi town.
30 meters before the intersection there is gasoline station ( XBP ) on the Right: It is the first one after entering in the area of Kasi district.
Local transport service is avalaible from the intersection ( less frequently in the late afternoon and not available after dark ). You can take any pick-up or minivan going through that direction and continue for about 6 km, TAO guesthouse is situated on the right side about 2 km AFTER THE SECOND BRIDGE and few hundreds meter after a military base ( it doesn’t look much like a military base except maybe for the gate ).
WE CAN EVEN PICK YOU UP at the intersection if you call us, if it is not in your possibility, you could ask to the driver to call or…
… JUST GO ON THE OPPOSITE SIDE of the XBP gasoline station: There is a small shop that works as well as a minivan stop. Ask to the woman there to contact TAO. If the woman is not there, you can borrow a phone from somebody ( a restaurant at the intersection for example or at the gas station; ask for TAO, show them the number or just call us ).
From Vientiane there is also a minivan ( probably just one per day, in the morning ) going to MUANG MET wich can go DIRECTLY TO TAO guesthouse, turning left at the intersection after the XBP gasoline station. Just go down at the guesthouse, about 2km AFTER THE SECOND BRIDGE and few hundreds meter after a military base ( it doesn’t look much like a military base except maybe for the gate ).
