Despite the woman at the ticket booth acting as if we were an inconvenience in her pursuit of activities unrelated to helping passengers, these bus timetables posted on the windows of the ticket desk will be helpful to anyone getting from Savannakhet, Laos, to Pakse, Vientiane, Vietnam and Mukdahan, across the river border, in Thailand.
Update: we passed through Savannakhet again in March 2017. All prices were the same except to Hanoi, which we have updated accordingly.
