South Laos

Sleepy south Laos is one of our all-time favourite places to head in this lovely country. Just don’t bother packing a watch!

The region can be divided into four main areas; Pakse – the main city and gateway in and out of the south, The Bolaven Plateau – the rich and fertile coffee growing area, Champasak – in the middle of everything and home to the best boutique hotels in south Laos, and finally, the 4,000 Islands (Si Phan Don in Lao) – which are a gorgeous cluster of rugged river islands caught in the middle of the mighty Mekong.

The south is the place to head to relax, ride a bike and admire countless waterfalls… we love it!
