Backyard Travel Release News of Promotion for their ‘Pakse and Beyond: To The 4000 Islands’ Tour

July 31, 2013 Tour Operator No Comments Email Email

Backyard Travel, Asia’s most innovative tour company, has today released news of a discount on one of their tailor-made trips to Southern Laos, taking in the essential experiences on some of the 4000 islands and the dramatic secenry that surrounds the majestic Mekong River.

The tour can temporarily be taken for less with a 15% discount from now until the 30 September 2013.

The fully customizable four-day, three-night tour begins in Pakse, one of the most important towns in Laos. While in Pakse, travelers will have the chance to visit the Bolaven Plateau, taking a stop at the Tad Lo area to see the three wonderful waterfalls of Tad Hang, Tad Suong and Tad Lo before arriving at the stunning twin waterfalls of Tad Yuang and Tad Fane, which pour down into a gorge in the dense jungle.

From Pakse the Laos tour then takes travelers to visit the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Wat Phou – a spectacular temple built by rulers of the Khmer empire which pre-dates Angkor Wat. The tailored trip then provides the opportunity to take an elephant ride throught the Xe Pian Protected Area to Mt. Asa before spending the night on Khong Island, the largest island in Southern Laos.

Travelers can then spend time biking around the quiet islands of Don Det and Don Khone, both car-free islands with electricity only during the evenings. The guided excursions around the islands take in some of the local coconut, kapok and bamboo farms and the chance to observe local fishermen plying their trade.

This Pakse and Beyond: To The 4,000 Islands trip is now available with a discount of 15% when taken before 30 September 2013.

“This atmospheric adventure of the famour Siphandon region allows travelers the unique opportunity to get up close to the reality of life on the Mekong,” said Backyard Travel’s General Manager Maeve Nolan. “We hope this new promotion will encourage more travelers to sample the wonders and authenticity of this majestic region that we at Backyard Travel love so much.”
