      How to get to Wat Phu (Champasak) and Si Phan Don from Pakse?

      Laos Jan 25, 2016 at 4:58 PM

      I have checked tour arranging to go there for 2 days but it is very expensive (USD300+/pax) that is quite an incredible price, from my point of view, in the standard of Laos.
      I will arrive Paske from Vientiane by sleeping bus, is that possible to get to Champasak right away?
      My plan is to stay at Champasak so that I have time to visit Wat Phu.
      The next day I want to travel to Si Phan Don, then stay at Don Khone. How to get to Don Khone from Champasak?
      From Don Khone how to go back to Pakse?

      9 days - From Siam Reap to Vientiane

      Laos Jan 18, 2016 at 3:43 AM

      Hi everyone,
      I have to plan the last part of my trip that goes trought vietnam, cambodia and at the end laos. Basically i have 9 days in this february (from the 15 to the 25 morning, I have a plane departing from there) to reach Vieantiane from Siam Reap, I know that the time is short but I have no other options.
      i'm planning something like this:
      -15: travel from Siam Reap to 4000islands (Don Khon? or is better Don Dhet) with bus
      -16: Visit of the Li Phi waterfalls in the morning (I need to hire a morotbike?) and look for a swangthaew to reach Pakse in the afternoon
      -17-18 visit pakse the Wat Phu, two days beacuse i don't know if i can really find a swangtaew in the afternoon.
      -19 bus from Pakse to Vientiane
      -20-24 Visit Vientiane and around.
      I can book a flight to Pakse but it's quite expansive and i save one day only. (or nothing because plane leave at 5)

      The other option is to take a plane 156 euro, not cheap but the only way, from Siam Reap to Luang Prabang and visit Luang Prabang and Vientiane, something like
      -16-17-18-19 Luang Prabang and around (suggestions?, Vang Vieng is a worth visit?)
      -19 night/20 day Travel
      - 21-22 23 24Vientiane and around (also here suggestion?)

      In the first option i see more places but i actually don't know if is worth it i spend an incredible amount of time, what do you suggest me? basically i have to choose if is better visit Pakse of Luang Prabang.

      Thai taxi from Ubon Ratchatani airport to Pakse without changing at he border, is it possible ?


      Any idea is there is a way to avoid changing my taxi from airport to Pakse ? Thai can cross the border by car, so why not a taxi ?

      Thank you 3

      1. Is it necessary to go via Pakse?

      2. Does anyone have experience of travelling by bus Pakse to Phnom Penh?

      3. Timetable and Bus Company info, anyone? I know it takes 12+ hours.

      Does anyone have recent experience with the VIP bus from Vientiane to Pakse?
      Are there any overnight runs and would it be possible to catch some sleep?

      How was it on a scale from 1-10 where 1 is "My kindneys was shaken loose, still ...sing blood and 10 "A treat, I slept like a baby"
