Getting around Salavan

Independent travellers heading to Salavan’s districts and attractions may find it challenging, but well worth the effort.

 

The best wat to get around Salavan is with transportation rented in Pakse, as only Tad Lo currently offers bicycle rentals. Tuk-tuks are available for travelling around Salavan Town’s sites, and the schedule for busses to the outlying districts is limited.

Busses leave Salavan Town for Laongarm at 11:00 and 12:00 for LAK20,000 and to Vapi at 10:30 and 13:30 for LAK30,000. One bus leaves for Samouay at 13:00 for LAK40,000, two to Ta-Oy at 09:00 and 12:30 for LAK30,000, and three for Khongxedon at 10:30, 13:30, and 14:00 for LAK30,000.

It is possible to hire song taews (Pickup trucks with benches) for a one-way trip or for the day. Head to the district bus station to negotiate with local drivers, or ask your hotel or guesthouse if they can arrange transportation.

Note: bus and song taew schedules and prices are subject to change. Please check before departing.
