Don Dhet transport from Pakse

Posted by bunny81 on 14/11/2008 at 01:08

Hi all, my husband and I arrive in Pakse early January on a flight which arrives in at 10am. Is it easy to then get a bus straight to Nankasang and the boat to Don Dhet? Times, prices would be great! Trying to work out how soon we could get there as we only have 3 nights to spend on Don Dhet. Then, returning from Don Dhet, our flight leaves Pakse at 11.45am, i guess we have to check in at 10.45am. Is this enough time to get from Don Dhet to Pakse airport? Thanks for any info!! ;-)

From the transport section for Don Dhet :

"If you head out to Pakse 's Southern Bus Station at the 8-kilometre market on your own, you're looking for buses to Nakasang, which usually drop off at a boat landing about 3km south of Nakasang town. Departures as 08:00, 09:00,10:00, 12:00, 13:00, 14:00, 15:00, 16:00, and the price is 30,000 kip. Songthaews leave when full. The ferry to the southern boat landing on Don Dhet should cost about 15,000 kip per person, as long as there are three or more passengers."

Yes, if you leave early you'll get to Pakse in time for your flight.
