“affordable accomodation on don khong island (4000 islands area)”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 8, 2008

you will leave pakse by bus at 8am ,arriving nakasang at 11.30 (60,000 kip)..the bus drops you at boat landing for don khone island . the 10 minute ride to the island costs 1000 kip .you will be asked if you want to do the day river trip to si don (7000 kip)and this is okay if you do not want to go to major falls near border...if you want all inclusive day boat/falls trip suggest you wait and get it from mr pon at pons restaurant...when you arrive at riverbank on don khong,turn left and walk 100 yds and you come to the auberge sala guest house..two types of accommodation await you ;upstairs ($30) or basic downstairs ($15).both are air conditioned with own bathroom..at breakfast (included) each morning a delightful old french woman owner/manager will attempt a conversation...it is only a 120 meter walk back past boat landing to pons guest house and riverside restaurant.accommodation at pons is hard to get due to tour groups..mr pon speaks several languages,is most helpful.his day boat/falls trip is 15,000 kip and recommended. also the daily bus to cambodia and transfers further into cambodia (all the way to phnom penh) start from his restaurant at 8am..this is the trouble free way to do the border crossings by road with cambodian visa on demand (US$ 20) available while bus waits....you have a lao exit stop,then 17 k of ROUGH dirt road before you arrive at cambodian border post..little scenery but interesting river crossings in cambodia onward to kratie.
