    The island is Don Kho. Its north of Pakse. The temple is east of the the town that is east of the island. After docking at the rivers bank we walked through the town met some new friends and found our way to the temple. Along the way we stopped at a well pump at a French built school. No one was there as it was a holiday.
    I swam in the river before. Just have to be careful as to what you step on. Stingrays and such.

    As I fondly recall - I do not believe there is a McD's in site of Pakse.
    Nice Christmas pics and the reminder about what life is really about, Fish.

    The Mekong flows from the north west at Pakse. Going north west along the bank you will come to the Island of Don Kho. The town of Ban Donkhoh is just north east of the island. Head north to the temple of Wat Chomphet (mabey Jomphet). If you make it this far be sure to get blessed by the Lady under the Buddah and dont scrimp on the donation. A blessing may go a long way.
    If in Pakse just take 13 north. Its only a few miles north of the airport. Take the first left before the nothern bus terminal. Then the next right and you are there.
    The Wat Phou adventure is a full day out of Pakse. That will be another thread though.
    Travel safe, smart and often. Good luck.

    Sorry for the poor quality. It was a handy cam on pic mode. Never again! They were all I had of the temple thus poor quality vs no pics at all. That is my first attempt at a picture thread and some of the worst pics I have of Laos. So I can say with much confidence that any future threads will be much better. Lucky I had a Nikon cool pics along, just didn't use it at this sight for most of the pics. Seeing others threads has mad me more aware of what good photography is all about and I thank you all for that.
