The Mekong River is fed and feeds numerous other smaller rivers and tributaries, so it's not surprising there are a number of waterfalls to see. October is also at the end of the wet season so these waterfalls are at their most impressive.
The Mekong River is the heart and soul of mainland Southeast Asia, and the 12th longest river in the world. At this time of the year the Mekong River is high, and the waterfalls are in good condition. Average temperatures during this month are 18-28°C (64-82°F).
Book a holiday to Laos, which is still relatively new to modern tourism and so traditional ways of life continue. River travel fits naturally into the calm pace of life here and is a great way to see this beautiful country.
