Visa on arrival is pretty easy & straightforward. $35 USD. Just make sure you're packing some small passport photos to avoid any additional fees, headaches & longer lines.

The domestic terminal is a great example of communist architecture that has not changed in many years. No real facilities to speak of so if you have some time to kill I would recommend walking next door to the international terminal. At least there are a few places for food and coffee. The international terminal is probably sufficient for the number of flights it gets but not too impressive for the airport of a capital city. There are plans to expand it though so maybe improvements are on the way.

Small and under developed. Some extensions are being made, which is what remains to be seen. Parking isn't a problem. Waiting areas before boarding are small, a bit hot at time. Only a few restaurants upstairs. So have your lunch or breakfast first before going.


Small airport. I liked the feeling when I did the transit here on on flight from Hanoi to Phnom Penh. You can see the full view of airport with a 360 degree turn around! Nice view during take-off and landing: mountain full of green green green!!!

It is a small airport which could use some improvements and development. The airport in Luang prabang is newer and looks more like a main city airport than this one. Maybe more space and renovation would do the trick. At least there is a waiting area with a coffee, chairs and big windows so you can watch the incoming and outgoing air traffic.
