Today is our returned journey to Thailand, so we booked a transport package from Don Det to Ubon Ratchathani. At 11am we were taken by boat at Don Det beach to Nakasong Pier. We then walked to the bus station for the 12 noon VIP bus to Pakse bus station arriving at 2.45pm. From here we changed to Thai VIP bus at 3.30pm to Chong Mek for immigration check at 4.40pm and then continued to Ubon Ratchathani arriving at 6.30pm.
