  • Day 1 Arrive Pakse & Excursion to Bolaven Plateau

    At Pakse Airport terminal, you will be met by your local guide for an excursion to the Bolaven Plateau, a high region known for its waterfalls, ethnic minorities, and coffee and tea production. Travel through villages, temples, and farmland, enjoying the cool air as you ascend to higher altitudes. Visit Tad Fane for a glimpse of the huge twin waterfalls that plunge out of the dense forest and tumble more than 120 meters down. Continue to Tad Yeung waterfalls, which drop an impressive 42 meters and are surrounded by lush vegetation. After visiting these impressive waterfalls, head to a tea and coffee plantation and learn why the Bolaven Plateau is an ideal area for these plantations. Afterwards, you will be driven to Pakse for the night.

    Accommodation: In Pakse
    Meal: Dinner

  • Day 2 Explore the Ancient Ruins of Vat Phou

    Head south to the ancient ruins of Vat Phou. Recognized as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 2002, Vat Phou is an outstanding example of early classical Khmer architecture, dating from the 7th to 12th centuries AD. Visit the museum at the site of the ruins and walk to the upper level of the temple complex for sweeping views and spectacular photos of lower Vat Phou, surrounding lands, and the Mekong River. After exploring the site, take a leisurely stroll through the narrow streets of Champasak town. The town boasts many colonial-era houses, some of which are in ruins, creating a nostalgic "Indochina" atmosphere. From Champasak, take a boat to cross the Mekong River and reach La Folie Lodge on Don Daeng Island. La Folie Lodge's wooden bungalows offer beautiful views of the water, garden, and mountains.

    Accommodation: On Done Daeng Island – La Folie Lodge

  • Day 3 Excursion to Si Phan Don (4000 Islands)

    Cross the Mekong by boat to reach Ban Muang pier, from where you'll take a two-hour drive to the village of Ban Nakasang. Once there, board a boat and cruise along the backwaters, exploring the enchanting Si Phan Don (4000 Islands) region. Take your time to appreciate the beauty of the surrounding islands, such as Done Khone and Don Det, and observe the traditional lifestyle of the local fishermen. Explore the old French villas, narrow-gauge railway, and the historic French railway bridge constructed during World War II. Wander along the packed dirt footpaths and palm-fringed villages, immersing yourself in the serene atmosphere of an Asia that seems untouched by time. Continue your journey to the impressive Lippi Falls, located to the west of Don Khone and near the Cambodian border. Here, you can take your time to soak in the awe-inspiring view. Return to the mainland by boat, making a small detour to visit Khone Phapeng Falls, known as the largest waterfall in Southeast Asia.
