Somehow my future trip seems to be getting longer. Due to better flight times/prices etc I've decided to visit Hanoi (eight days) before the trip I had originally planned, Laos and Cambodia (the whole of December) before heading on to Adelaide.
Luang Prabang - 4 days - The only place I really want to visit is the Kuang Si Falls
Veng Vieng - 2 days - just because many have mention the scenery. Is 48 too old for tubing (not interested in the pub visits) I just love water things, is it fun?
Vientiane - 2 days.
Then I want to head to Kong Lo Cave. I've read I can get there by taking a bus from Vientiane to the village. If so I'll stay overnight and do the cave in the morning unless the bus arrives at a nice time. Once I've done the trip I'd like to head down south to Don Det for a few days before crossing the border to Cambodia. It seems I'll have to head to Thakaek in order to reach Don Det via Paske is that correct? Could I do the cave in the morning and reach Don Det the same day or would it be a night in Paske?
As I'm not a party person anymore is there a preferable side to stay in Don Det? I love sunsets and have read there is a good side to be on. I'm only staying three/four nights as I just want to see what the fuss is about. Plus, I want to see the dolphins, seeing them in Laos means I don't have to go to Kratie. Therefore I can go directly to Siem Reap...
Thank you for any advice or info.....Edited: 15 May 2014, 08:21
