Thanaleng Railway Station is the only railway station in Laos, located in the middle of nowhere, near the border but approximately 22km from Vientiane city itself. The only way to get from Vientiane city to Thanaleng Railway Station is by private transport. However, as I spoke to Mr Per of PTS Transit Service who did my Thanaleng Railway Station to Vientiane Talad Sao transfer in the morning, who offered a shared ride on his minivan back to the station at the same rate of 200 Baht (~S$8.37), I took on his offer without hesitation.
