Southern Laos

a region of endless photo opportunities

Making its way through towering mountain ranges and jungle countryside, the mighty Mekong River brings life to Laos’ landscape. A central part of life on the plains, we recommend cruising along its tranquil waters to discover sleepy riverside towns and unique cultures.

Located where the Mekong meets the Se Don Rivers, the town of Pakse is the ideal base to uncover the delights of southern Laos. Once a member of the Angkor Empire, today the town opens the door to time-worn temples, stunning waterfalls and an unhurried way of life.

Discover the crumbling remains of Wat Phu, an ancient hill-top temple complex dating back hundreds of years. Set amongst misty forested hills, these UNESCO-listed Khmer ruins are a real highlight.

For a taste of cooler climes, head to the Bolaven Plateau where you will find many of Laos’ tea and coffee plantations. Try a cup of the region’s finest brew and learn about the different ethnic groups that live here. The area is also famed for the spectacular Tad Fane waterfall with its dramatic 100 metre drop and scenic rainforest setting.

As you journey down the majestic Mekong you will find yourself in Si Phan Don, otherwise known as the 4,000 Islands. In the dry season, the waters recede and leave behind a sensational archipelago of islets. A region of endless photo opportunities, visitors to the islands can enjoy kayaking and boat cruises – look out for the rare Irrawaddy dolphin!
