  • Nam Tien restaurant

    Xaignabouli Restaurants

    This is trully the best place to eat in Sayabouly town (or more precisely - at the outskirts of town), especially for fresh fish from Nam Tien reservoir. They have large menu and use good, fresh ingredients for mostly local - Lao and Thai dishes and for good price: we paid about 45 000 KIP for one kg of fish with applied sauce - it was delicious....

  • local market

    Xaignabouli Things to Do

    It's most probably the busiest place in town and good place to buy nice sticky rice baskets in variety of patterns - these are appreciated by local Sayaboulis. There are few stalls with gold and jewlery - I got some cheap and old bank notes and Indochina coins there (much cheaper than in Vientiane at the Morning Market). Try some of delicious,...

  • to vientiane, luang prabang

    Xaignabouli Transportation

    There is one bus to Vientiane per day from the bus terminal North of town. You'll enter Road 13 in Luang Prabang province. From the same bus station you can travel to Luang Prabang (a few times a day by songthaew or local bus) and Hongsa (few times a week by pick up car, but not often in the wet season). Note that songthaews to LPB gets full easily...

  • slow boat to Kaoliew - Vientiane

    Muang Pak-Lay Transportation

    Slow boat will be the best and most comfortable option for you to get to Vientiane, however keep in mind that it leaves only a few times a week at about 9.30 and it takes min. 8 hrs of travelling. Boats leave from the port (built with Australian help) in the middle of Pak Lay and you'll land at Kao Liew boat/ferry station which is in suburb,...

  • ruralness of Pak Lay

    Muang Pak-Lay Things to Do

    There are no many organized tourism related activites in Pak Lay yet and some visitor will find it boring here. On the other hand, Pak Lay is nice provincial town to stay for a day or two and walk around if not too hot. It is rural district capital. In the main streets there are several colonial buildings left in typical Inodchina style, large...

  • speed boat to Kaoliew - Vientiane

    Muang Pak-Lay Transportation

    To travel by speed boat to Kaoliew you'll need to go to speed boat station by tuk-tuk or walking but it's bit far from the main districts - it's in the Southern part of the town. Before boarding you'll need to go through some kind of 'immigration' (and the same procedure if you're landing) where they take your name and address in the notebook....

  • pick up to Sayabouli

    Muang Hongsa Transportation

    If you go to Xayabouli capital, you will have to take long ride (between 4 - 5 hrs if everything ok) by a pick up car. It leaves from market: there's small pick-up station and you have to buy a ticket before leaving. We were told to be there at 9 in the morning but it actually left Hongsa about 10.30. It means that pick up will leave when they have...

  • snap a ham

    Muang Hongsa Shopping

    Market is most obvious place to whatever shopping happens in Hongsa but your best buy will be probably fresh fruits for your trip and seeds. If you're handicraft buyer there are a few ladies of Hmong minority who sell their stuff for very reasonable price (specially if you compare same things with prices at Luang Prabang night market). minority...

  • listen to crickets and birds

    Muang Hongsa Nightlife

    Like in other remote towns there aren't much things to do after the sunset. There's no public light yet in the streets of Hongsa and most foreign visitors hang out in front of their guesthouses or some of the few restaurants in town which remain open - though not untill very late. Since there was international border crossing opened recently some...
