Can anyone recommend an agent to book flights b/n BKK, Laos, Siem Reap?

I have been to all of the sites for Bangkok, Vietnam, Laos, Thai Air and can't seem to figure out how to book flights b/n all of these cities.

I think I need a professional to take care of this!
Does anyone know of an agent that could book these flights for us?

Thank you

You'll have to use more than one airline. Bangkok AIr is the only carrier that flies non-stop Bangkok-Siem Reap and Bangkok -Luang Prabang and return. Take a look at their website and see whether you can use their Discovery Pass for much of this. You have to book the Bangkok Air pass from outside Asia.

If the Discovery Pass works for most of it, then you'd only have another leg or so you could book yourself on Thai Air or VN Air.

I have an agent. Eddie, in Bangkok I use when I need tickets I can't buy on the web. He's affiliated with the local American Express agency

Note that he cannot book the Discovery Pass for you and cannot book Air Asia flights for you.

Kathie, I actually found a previous thread where you recommended Eddie and I emailed him yesterday.
I still have not heard back from him but I am hoping I will soon.

I am hoping to get the flights down so I can reserve hotels.

Thanks again!

As Kathie suggested why not use Bangkok Air Discovery Pass. You would use Bangkok Air for flights between Bangkok, Siem Reap and Luang Prabang. For flight SR/LP use Laos Air which is part of the pass. This flight is not direct, there is a stop in Paske and takes 3+hrs. A Laos visa can be obtained here.

This will save you some money as the each flight will cost $100 plus surcharges of around $18 plus airport taxes.
