Tuk-tuks and songthaews cruise the streets and are easy to flag down in most towns. Lao tuk-tuk drivers can be unscrupulous about fares, especially in Luang Prabang and Vientiane. Do not believe the "official" prices placard displayed by drivers in Vientiane.
Songthaew and Tuk-Tuk Travel
Tuk-tuks and songthaews cruise the streets and are easy to flag down in most towns. Lao tuk-tuk drivers can be unscrupulous about fares, especially in Luang Prabang and Vientiane. Do not believe the "official" prices placard displayed by drivers in Vientiane. Don't get into a tuk-tuk before you've agreed on a fare and don't negotiate in dollars (get a quote in kip or baht). Finally, never pay more than you would for a comparable ride in Thailand.

Boat Travel
Running virtually the entire length of the country, the Mekong River is a natural highway. Because all main cities lie along the Mekong, boats offer an exotic but practical way to travel. The most popular water route is between Huay Xai (on the Thai border) and Luang Prabang. More adventurous travelers can board boats in Huay Xai or Pak Tha to travel up the Nam Tha River to Luang Nam Tha. Two luxury vessels ply the Mekong: the Vat Phu(Pakse) and the Luang Say(River Journey to Huay Xai).

Bus Travel
A network of bus services covers almost the entire country. Though cheap, bus travel is slow and not as comfortable as in Thailand. VIP buses, which connect Vientiane, Luang Prabang, and Pakse, are somewhat more comfortable—they have assigned seats and more legroom, and make fewer stops. Minivans have also become common between cities, and are priced about the same as buses and a bit quicker, not to mention they pick up directly from hotels. There are now sleeper buses between Vientiane and Pakse, though beds are less than 6 feet long and tall folks may want to buy both spots (in what is essentially one shared small bed).
