Pakse - taxi driver or private car driver, please

Posted by notayummymummy on 30/10/2008 at 13:38

We are landing at Pakse airport around 11am and want to drive straight to Don Khon island. We have two small kids with us and would prefer to do this by private car / taxi (with a driver). But I can't find any phone numbers to call and try to book someone. Can anyone help with a name or phone number? Thanks

I don't have the contact details for anyone, but I'd imagine you wouldn't have too much trouble arranging a driver and car upon arrival. If you want to work through a travel agent, XploreAsia ( come recommended.

I recomended: You can get a Local Bus or Private Car after 11:00 am. or daily share a/c nice minivan in the morning at 08:00 am for 60.000 kip.
The price for the private car to Ban Nakasang where you can continue get a boat to Don Khone is about USD 70-80.
You can contact with Pakse Travel which is the Car rental, Air ticketing, Bus,Train ticketing center in Pakse .

My friend and I had just return from Siem Reap . Beside having greatexperience in Siem Reap (personally this is my 2nd time going to SiemReap), we also having great time with our tuk-tuk driver, Mr Same Sa Vat ( Same ) . He is always arrive at our hotel early than the planned time. Hewill advise us when and where should we visit. During the trip to Angkor Temples, we also had a tour guide, Mr Kim, to bring us around(places which my tour guide from my last trip did not show me). Mr Kimexplain the full details behind the temples. Too bad of the heavy rain,if not we will finish the full tour of the Angkor temples. Last butnot, Mr Same and Mr Kim had made us laugh and sharing with ustheir knowledge. If my friend and I going back to Siem Reap again, wewill request them again.Thank you, Same, Mr Chan Pouen . if you would like to know more information please please give him a contact by : ,

Were you on crack when you made this post? Just say no to drugs man. Somehow I certainly missed the connection between this individual getting a car / taxi to Don Khone from Paxsi and some Tuk Tuk driver in Siem Reap.
