4000 islands to plain of jars advice?

Posted by Brwang93 on 7/4/2016 at 21:26

Hey guys,
Hoping to get some advice on getting from 4000 islands up to plain of jars. We've found ourselves with limited time after getting caught up in the slow life down on dondhet, but are hoping to visit plain of jars before catching a flight from Vientiane on the 20th.
Is it possible to get a bus direct from pakse to plain of jars, and if so what's the journey like? Happy to do night buses and hoping to avoid going through Vientiane to get there!

You could try going as far as Paksan and then getting a but from there north to Phonsavan etc. There have been a few security incidents in the last month or so, so not sure if they'll let foreigners on the bus, but otherwise, you'll need to go via Vientiane.

Have you looked into domestic flights ex Pakse as another route?
