Air Ticket to Luang Prabang

I understand that bankgok airways flies to Luang Prabang. Is it cheaper to buy tickets directly at their internet site or at a thai agency? Any comments appreciated.

my experience with bkk air is that you cannot save any money with an agent over buying directly from them, although i have often tried...you can save money by buying an air pass from them however...but that requires 3 legs of a trip...you might find it worthwhile to buy the pass and throw away the 3rd leg????

You may want to have a look at Lao Airlines as an alternative.

Both Thai and Lao airlines fly between CM and LP. Thai on mon/thur/sat and Lao on tues/fri/sun.
