The current political unrest in Bangkok, Thailand will surely be very damaging to the Lao tourism trade. Many people come into Laos through Bangkok, so any disruptions there will block one of the main avenues of tourists into Laos.

I hope that people wanting to travel to Laos will realise that there are many alternate avenues to Laos. Air Asia fly from Kuala Lumpur to Vientiane at very reasonable rates so there should be no reason why problems in Bangkok should stop you coming to Laos.

There are also flights from Vietnam, China and Cambodia to Laos so there are definitely many options on the table for those not wishing to come through Bangkok.
