It depends how far you want to go of course, but to give you an idea, a return day trip (including driver waiting) to Kuang Si waterfalls can be had for 150000 kip (USD19) if you bargain with a driver. This is about 25km each way.

A day trip to the falls is around 150,000 as suggested by previous contributor but it is generally not a full day. It usually is for about 5 hours so therefore I think you will have to spend around 200,000 kip for a full 8 hours.

Might I suggest hiring a boat instead? Cost is 500,000 (plus 50,000 tip, if you're happy) for a full day. Ask to go down the Mekong, not up--you'll visit three or four villages, and the magnificent hilltop temple, and see places most tourists don't. Pack a picnic lunch! The boat seats around 8 - 12 people, so split the cost with friends.
