On this tour we can arrange a short crossing by boat across the Mekong to the small Laos settlement of Don Xao. In Don Xao there is a small tourist market where some Laos souvenirs and goods can be found. From the beginning of 2015 a passport will be required if you want to take the Mekong boat trip to the Laos island of Don Xao (before a passport was not required) Please bring your passport if you want to do this option.

A small landing fee of 20 baht is usually collected by Laos authorities.
The road to this temple is extremely steep in places, so with regards to safety we now implement the following procedures when visiting this temple. if you are being transported by car (as opposed to a minibus) then the guide and driver will drive you by vehicle to visit this temple in Doi Mae Salong. If you are being transported by minibus then unfortunately we will not be able to drive you to this temple as we feel the minibus is to bulky to manouver this steep road safely. However for the minibus customers you will have the option to walk up to this temple via the 700+ stepped staircase (please note that a very good level of fitness will be required!) If the road is wet we will not be able to drive to this temple by car or minibus as we feel the road is too slippery in places to do this safely.
