ITINERARY
D1 PAKSE–KHONE PHAPENG–KHONE ISLAND–KHONG ISLAND            (L/D)
At 9h30 in the morning, meet at the Sinouk Café. Drive to the famous Khone Phapeng Waterfalls, the largest cascade on the Mekong River along its 4,350 km stretch from the Tibetan Plateau to the South East Sea.  
Then continue to the fishing village of Xiengdi. 
In the afternoon, board a long-tail riverboat to Khone Island to see the maze of waterways, a fascinating glimpse of its colorful French colonial houses and old railway. 
Continue upstream to the village of Ban Veunthong on Khong Island, where the Vat Phou boat is moored. Check-in on board the Vat Phou boat and enjoy a leisurely cruise up-river. The boat docks for the night at a remote Lao village.
Overnight on board.

 


D2 KHONG ISLAND–OUM MUONG–HOUEI THAMO (B/L/D)
After breakfast, visit the village of Ban Dua Tia, where the traditional way of life has been preserved for centuries. Then cruise north to a myriad of islands and islets forming the tropical paradise of Siphandone “The 4,000 Islands”. 
In the afternoon, arrive in the village of Houei Thamo, on the east of the river bank. The boat will stop here to allow an exploration of the Angkorian temple of Oum Muong, hidden in the heart of a thick forest, only a few minutes walk from the village. Return back to the boat. 
Overnight on board.

 


D3 HOUEI THAMO–VAT PHOU–PAKSE                      (B/L)
After breakfast, the final leg of the cruise will be toward the direction of the ancient Royal capital of Champassak. Drive to the pre-Angkorian Vat Phou Temple (XIth century) located 8 km from the city and  lies on a hillside offering a spectacular view over the surrounding plains and the Mekong River. In 2002, Vat Phou was recognized as a World Heritage site by UNESCO. 
In the afternoon, board a local long-tail riverboat and cruise up the Mekong River, heading north toward the city of Pakse, zigzagging through mild rapids and sand banks.

MONEY : Lao Kip; US Dollars and Thai Baht are widely accepted in the main cities. Moneychangers are found in the cities and an increasing number of ATMs are appearing, however they distribute Laos Kip and have a low limit. As of July 12 : 1USD = 8000 Kip
 
VISAS : Foreign tourists are generally admitted into Laos for 30 days with a visa on arrival (obtained at most border check points) or for 30 days with a visa issued at a Laotian embassy. Passports must be valid for at least 6 months.

GETTING THERE & AWAY : The two main international airports are in Vientiane and Luang Prabang.

There are no direct flights from Europe or very few from other countries to Laos. The most frequent connections are from Bangkok (Thailand).
 
PUBLIC HOLIDAYS : Laos’ main holidays are based around the Buddhist calendar and will cause little disruption to travel plans. Other festivals such as Lao New Year (April) and Boat Racing (August in Luang Prabang; October in Vientiane) may see some restaurants and businesses close, but are colorful times to visitand experience Lao culture.

WHEN TO GO ?

From November to February the weather in Laos is cool and dry while March to June sees temperatures soaring in to the high 30s (Celsius). July to October tend to be rainy, washing out some roads thus making rural areas inaccessible.
