Amo Travel is formerly known as Amo Vietnam

Southern Laos In Style

Southern Laos in style: The far south of Laos is made up of four provinces: Attapeu, Champasak, Sekong and Salavan. This region borders Vietnam to the east, Thailand to the west and Cambodia to the south.
A contrasting combination of archetypal Mekong River life, the cooler climes of the Bolaven Plateau and three remote and little-visited eastern provinces make southern Laos a real mixed bag of tasty offerings. The whole area remains refreshingly raw, but as in the rest of Laos a series of community-based tourism projects have made getting inside Lao-style life easier than ever.

On arrival at Pakse, you will be met and taken by road west into the Bolevean Plateau.  The Bolevean Plateau is known for its cooler temperature being located high above the Mekong Valley. The area is famous for its many waterfalls, and the most beautiful of these falls, Tad Fan, we visit.  Tad Fan waterfall is spectacular with twin waterfalls plummeting into a deep gorge surrounded by flourishing vegetation. A trip to the plateau provides a refreshing break from the heat and allows you to observe the cultivation of rich coffee, tea, cardamom, bananas, and other crops that can be seen en route.  In the afternoon we arrive at Tad Lo, home to another scenic waterfall and numerous ethnic minority groups.  We then head south to Xe Pian National Protected Area and the Kingfisher Eco-lodge for the evening.
