Wikitravel can often be quite helpful, in this instance giving some direction on busing.
- Udon Thani: Buses depart at least once per hour after 11AM to Nong Khai (20 baht, 1 hour, non-airconditioned 3rd class) on the Lao border. Buses from Nong Khai may drop you off north of the city. Follow the locals and hop on the waiting #6 songthaew to the bus station or take a tuk-tuk.
- Nong Khai: There are departures to Udon Thani at least once per hour from the BKS station on the main drag, Prajak road. The hour-long ride costs 20 baht in 3rd class (non-air con). 40 baht in 2nd class (air con).
I am not quite clear why the Nong Khai entry is talking about busing to Udon Thani, when the discussion I took the quote from is supposed to be about getting into Nong Khai (and not out of it), but there it is. Just ensure that you refer to the original Wikitravel articles — by the time you read what I have posted above, things may have changed.
Back in 2008, UdonMap gave excellent coverage about getting to Nong Khai from Udon Thani in a forum post titled Nong Khai Immigration Office Details. The link given for the train timetable is no longer valid, but I am not entirely sure what use the timetable is — the English timetable only lists getting from Bangkok to Nong Khai and vice versa, and does not identify anything at all about the shorter haul from Udon Thani to Nong Khai. The State Railway of Thailand website has a feature for changing it from Thai into English, by the way. Note: if you click on any of the files under “Fares” or “Download Timetable,” you will find yourself with documents that are only in Thai.
There was some discussion in March 2008 at TripAdvisor about getting from Udon to Nong Khai in a thread titled Udon Thani and Nong Khai. And Lonely Planet‘s Thorn Tree travel forum has an August 2009 thread titled Transport from Udon Thani to Nong Khai.
You can see photos of the highway in an On The Road Thailand account by a motor-biker of his trip from Udon Thani to Nong Khai.
