  1. I stumbled upon your site when looking for this year travel, Laos is one interesting place and I will bookmark this page soo we can see if Laos is the place to go

    1. Hi Andreas. Yes, Correct! 🙂 Laos is one interesting place. Thank you to bookmark my page and very appreciated. I’m trying to collect more information on my website, please help to follow from time to time. If you will visit Saysathan District in Sayyaboury province, I recommend you visit Luang Prabang province first. because Luang Prabang is the most popular in tourism.

  2. Hi Vanalee, Thank you for informing us about Saysathan district, how far is it from the main capital city in Laos in terms of hours? You said it’s far but it would be great to know. It’s a beautiful place.

    1. Hi Michelle, The main capital city of Laos is Vientiane. Vientiane capital to Sayaboury province, It is about 360 KM, about 8 hours. Then, you have to continue to Saysathan 65 KM and will take time about 2-3 hours from there.
      When you arrive Vientiane, you can take Minivan (at Sikhay terminal) or bus (at the northern bus station) straight to Sayaboury province. You should have a long holiday. Moreover, you should visit the Elephant Festival, Sayaboury District, Sayaboury Province, Laos 21-28 February 2020 (held every year).
      But, you will save more time by taking flight from Vientiane Capital to Luangprabang (travel here) and then you go to Sayaboury, Saysathan is your final destination. Thanks a lot for your comment and welcome to Laos.

  3. Hi!This looks like THE place to unwind and forget everything and remember what being face to face with people means!

    Have you any information if there is a base to fly there with private plane?I saw they have buses and vans and you can rent 4 wheel drive/off road motorcycle,cars too for transport.They counsel on getting a mountain bike too cause the roads will be too difficult.

    Also,to eat and stay accommodations I have found these in “featured/good to know”.

    Their website needs tweaking cause I had trouble with the maps loading and travel times under a map,I click the logo of a bus and it says “page not found”…java script issue.

    At least they are on Instagram and you can email or phone them.
    Thank you very much for introducing us to a Laos we didn’t know!Very charming!

    It’s sounds lovely !I went on the and man is it ever extrordinary!They got elephants!

    1. Hi Liz,

      I’m not sure that you can bring your private plane. Hmm, I don’t have much information about this. I can tell you, Luang Prabang International Airport is main airport in northern. If you arrive Luang Prabang province is not too far from there to Sayaboury province by 4 wheel drive.

      Yes, you are right. It is good to hear, you already visit and I know the same as you. I think you can contact them by phone or email T +856-30 935 1498 (Sayaboury Tourist Department
      Ban Thin, Sayaboury District and Province, Lao PDR).

      They don’t have Instagram, but they have a Facebook page instead. If you like to get the latest update in Sayaboury province on Facebook
