Our guide will pick you up at the hotel then take you on a short orientation tour of PAKSE, the 2nd most populous in the country, serving as a major transport and commerce hub for southern Laos. Explore Pakse’s huge local market and its iconic colonial and Chinese style buildings.

After that, leave this bustling city for the Bolaven Plateau, one of southern Laos' most attractive destinations, home to dozens of hill tribes, waterfalls and beautiful tea/coffee plantations. En route, take visit to the beautiful Tad Fane and Tad Yuang waterfalls, two of most beautiful waterfalls on Bolaven Plateau. Rainy season (from May to September) is the best time to visit these mighty and beautiful waterfalls.

We also make a stop for short break in PAKSONG before heading to Sinouk Coffee Resort, a typical Lao style lodge, offering a unique experience to visitors among coffee trees and French-style gardens. Here, a local guide from the resort will lead a soft trek through the coffee plantation. Spend your time to observe all the stages of coffee processing from the beginning as seed, young tree until transplanted into coffee plantation areas. Enjoy your lunch at the resort’s Le Bistrot restaurant. The vegetables which are used for dishes, come from the resort’s organic garden.

After lunch, sample some different types of coffee before driving back to Pakse. On the way back, it is possible to make stops to visit the famous Tad Lo waterfalls and the Katu village of Ban Houay Houn. Here, you can buy unique Katu textiles with the motifs are created by a series of beads woven in on the weft thread. Upon arrival back to Pakse, you will be transferred to the hotel.

Overnight in Pakse.

Lunch
Following the breakfast, your driver will transfer you to Wat Phou, ancient pre-angkorian/angkorian complex temples in Southern Laos. On the way, we will drive through nice streets lined with French colonial buildings in CHAMPASAK.

Situated on a hillside and offers stunning views over the surrounding land and Mekong River, Wat Phou was built during the late 10th to early 11thcentury which makes it older than the great temple complex at Angkor Wat in Cambodia. Originally it was a Hindu temple dedicated to Shiva. It, however, was converted into a Buddhist monastery in the 13th century. In 2002, it is recognized by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site. Have lunch in a local restaurant.

Afterwards, proceed to Khong Island or Don Khong, the biggest island of Si Phan Don (4,000 islands). This area is where the Mekong stretches over 14km wide and houses thousands of islands between its cascades and rapids. Some of them are no bigger than a boulder, others offer a paradise getaway in the Mekong River.

Overnight on Khong Island.

Breakfast, Lunch
Have a full day exploring of the 4000 Islands. Your driver will transfer (around 45 minutes) you to the village of Ban Nakasan. We then take a local boat to the peaceful Khon Island. Upon arrival, jump on the bikes and take a ride through small villages and scenic plantations.

NOTE: A tuk-tuck can be arranged for the tour upon request with additional charge.

Head over to the west side of the island where the Lippi Waterfalls are located. It is believed that these mysterious waterfalls trap any lingering bad spirits, hence its names which means “trap spirits”. If you want, you can walk up to the top of the railway bridge to snap excellent pictures of falls and surrounding areas.

Follow up with a short boat trip on Mekong river, cruise gently over the calm waters in the hope to seek some endangered Irrawaddy dolphin. Enjoy your lunch in a nearby restaurant before returning back to Ban Nakasan by boat. From this village, you will be transferred Pakse by car.

Overnight in Pakse
