    Hi Paul!

    Thanks a lot for writing this up. I have a question about bus schedules leaving from Pakse to Don Det. Do you know at what time buses leave? I land in Pakse at 4PM and would rather take a bus out to Don Det that same day. Any insights on this would be greatly appreciated. Also, would I still arrive to Don Det early enough for the boat to the island?

      Hi Andres,

      I realy don’t know about the time the bus leaves. In my mind i have 8.20 AM or something like that 🙂
      You can always email a hotel in Pakse and ask them for the right schedule.
