Laos - Southern Laos (Chapter)
This is the Southern Laos chapter from Lonely Planet’s Laos guidebook.
Kayaking or bicycling around these bucolic islands is the signature southern Laos experi-ence, but the rest of this incredibly diverse region – home to Angkorian temples, highland cul-tures, waterfalls, prime trekking, and raw off-the-beaten-track experiences – remained off the ra-dar until recently.
- ogle fierce cascades and spot rare dolphins while touring Don Khon by bicycle or kay-ak
- take a trek and a boat trip in the jungle around Kiet Ngong, the region’s premier ecotourism area
