Transport International

A longtime old plan of a bus from Nan to Luang Prabang (Laos) seems finally reality and starting from begin November 2017 there is once a day a bus from Nan to Luang Prabang (Laos). Bus leaves everyday from Nan at 8:00 and it takes 8:30 hours to travel 373 km to Luang Prabang in Laos. Costs are 660 Thai baht. You can also get on / off in Hongsa or Xarabouly in Laos. For more information call 1490 or +66.54.710.027

Update 7 April 2018 : Currently there is only 1 bus available so the route Nan to Luang Prabang (or visa versa) is done every other day instead of everyday.

Update 22 June 2019 : Due to maintenance to one of the two busses there is only 1 bus going every 4 days. So on 21 June 2019 a bus goes from Nan to Luang Prabang and on 25 June the next bus is going. Visa-versa of course the same but on other days.
