Hello everyone [img]smileys/smile.gif[/img]
I'll be heading to Laos next week and have only 2 weeks for Laos and Vietnam (decided to do a little bit of both since I couldn't bring myself to choose between the 2 countries!
I've been to Laos before and spent my time there in the north, so this time I'd like to spend my few days in the south instead. My rough idea is as follows
tuesday- reach vientiane in the afternoon (flying in to here fr KualaLumpur), hop on the night bus to Pakse
wednesday - get fr Pakse to Champasak
thursday- look around Wat Phu and Don Daeng, maybe a homestay that night on Don Daeng
friday- find my way to Si Phan Don
sunday- get back to Savannakhet in time for the night bus to Hue
So my questions are:
1. Is there a direct connection between Vientiane and Champasak that wouldn't need me to stop in Pakse?
2. Is it possible to get back to Savannakhet from Si Phan Don in one day? And would I have to go to Pakse from the islands then take another bus to Savannakhet or is there a direct connection?
I'm aware my little plan sounds a bit rushed, but with so few days, that's what I could come up with.. Any suggestions/advice would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks so much! [img]smileys/smile.gif[/img]
Sorry but this is ridiculous. You will spend all your time on buses.
"Is there a direct connection between Vientiane and Champasak that wouldn't need me to stop in Pakse ?"
No, it is about 1 hour between Pakse and Champasak.
