LLT006 – Laos travels – Short trip to Laos 2 days, 1 night

2 – days

On this tour, you will gain an understanding of what life is like in Laos. We start our tour at the border-crossing of Chong Megk, where we meet up at 9:00 am. An airconditioned minibus will take us to Pakse. Along the way, we will stop to pay a visit to the Wat Phou Sa Lao temple site. The site is situated on a mountain on the western bank of the Mekong River.

From there, you will enjoy a breathtaking view on the Mekong and over Pakse. You will then check-in at your hotel. After a short break, we will take you on an orientation tour through the city. We will then continue north and reach Ban Saphai about 30 minutes later. From the docks at Ban Saphai, we will start our excursion to Don Kho – a small island in the middle of the Mekong. Its inhabitants primarily live off fishing, the cultivation of rice and vegetables as well as the production of traditional silk scarves.

We will visit the local school, and as we stroll around, we will see how these traditional silk scarves are woven by hand. We will then visit Wat Don Kho and explore the island on paths well shaded by luscious vegetation. We will then return to Pakse by boat. You will experience the diversity of the scenery and observe fishermen at work. After about an hour, we will reach the docks in Pakse and from there to the hotel.

Transfer to the hotel by air conditioned minibus is optional. One stop along the way is Wat Chompet, where we will visit the temple site and see how stonemasons sculpture traditional stone Buddha’s by hand. After breakfast the following day, we will take you to one of the most picturesque waterfalls in southern Laos and visit the village of Ban Phasuam. Our tour ends with the transfer back to the Chong Megk border-crossing.
