Travel Information
The following telephone numbers should work in most areas of the country where there is telephone service:
Fire : 190
Police : 191
Ambulance : 195
Laos, like Thailand, is seven hours ahead of GMT/UTC. Thus, noon in Vientiane is 10pm the previous day in San Francisco, lam in New York, 5am in London, 1pm in Perth and 3pm in Sydney.
Telephone service in Laos, both domestic and international, is on-again, off-again at best. In the towns and cities of the Mekong valley, service has improved substantially in the last couple of years and International Direct Dialling (IDD) finally became available for businesses and private residences in Vientiane in 1993. With the arrival of satellite telecommunications via IntelSat and AsiaSat, you can now dial 155 countries from Vientiane.
