Trading route, source of food and water, social center for the settlements along its banks, the Mekong plays an essential role in the life of People in Laos – it is also called locally” The Mother of Waters”.

Around 14.30, we reach the highlight of the afternoon - the Vat Phou ruins - the majestic pre-Angkorian 10th century temple complex that gave its name to our boat. Visit the museum at the ruins site, walk up to the highest temple and take as some photos…
As dusk falls, we transfer you back to the Vat Phou boat to enjoy the tropical sunset on the deck. Dinner is served on board, while the boat docks for the night alongside a remote Laotian village.
During the afternoon you will visit the Khone PhaPheng waterfalls, the “Niagara of the East”. Then around 16.00, you will be transferred back to Pakse by bus where the tour will end. We will pick you up there to drive you to the River Resort. Upon arrival, enjoy one hour massage to relax. No arrangement for dinner.
