Kham Phan, 38, and Bun Ma, 34, were caught red-handed with the drugs near the Lao Bao International Border Gate in central Vietnam at around 4:30 a.m.
The duo said they bought the drug in Laos' capital Vientiane and were about to sell to drug dealers in Vietnam's Quang Tri Province.
They were handed over to Laotian police, who will further investigate the case.
