  • Day 2: Tadlo - Wat Phu Temple - Khong Island - Don Khone (B, L)
    • A scenic drive takes you from Tadlo to the former royal capital of Champasak, which serves as a gateway to the pre-Angkoran temple of Wat Phu, one of Laos’ two UNESCO World Heritage Sites. This hillside edifice was once an important sanctuary of the Khmer Empire. While the temple structure was partly destroyed during the turbulent history of the region, it is nonetheless fascinating to walk among its ruins.
      Following a walkway that features various iconic forms, like Vishnu, Shiva and Kala, you will reach the upper grounds of the temple which offers a spectacular view of the surrounding valley and mighty Mekong River.
      Following this you will get to visit Wat Phou Museum and Oum Moung Temple, before a drive to the 4000 Islands and a quick 30 minute boat trip from the central market to Don Khone Island. By afternoon you will reach the spectacular Don Khone Island, just in time to watch the sunset over the Mekong River.
