  1. Hi from Thailand..would highly recommend you book your cat and you just to BKK and THEN book a flight via Bangkok Airways to Lao. Having been there, and living in TH, Lao (Luang Prabang) is an easy 1 hr flight from BKK..10 hours in BKK at the terminal would be excruciating and not good for any animal. We brought our 2 cats and 4 large dogs TO Thailand and believe me, that was one hell of an arduous journey for them. And us….
    You could also book a minivan from BKK to Lao…a bit more costly, but…that’s how we transported from BKK arrival to island of Koh Samui, a 12 hour drive after they’d flown for 20 hrs. And another thing, do NOT take your cat outside the cage, even if they let you, unless you are in a very secure locked hotel room!!! animals are zero importance here by locals. Just be safe.

  2. Daleen – if you claim your cat and clear customs, you will need to conform to Thailand’s import regulations for pets. You can find them here: http://www.pettravel.com/immigration/Thailand.cfm. Your pet will be inspected and released to you if all requirements are met, but this process can take a while. There could also be issues if you are arriving after normal business hours. You may want to contact your airline and see if they will hold your pet for 10 hours. They may allow you to see it, but it would be better not to remove it from the airport.

  3. Hi,

    I am moving with my cat from the USA to Laos. I have a 10 hour layover in Bangkok for transit and I am wondering if my cat will be allowed out of the airport so I could check into a hotel for the night and go back to the airport to check in with her in the morning.

    Thanks much,

    Daleen
