The owner of this restaurant/tour company across the street is dishonest and ripped us off. My friend booked a fishing tour for us; in hindsight I should have booked it myself since I have been living in Laos for 5 years and know proper behavior from not.
The owner paid his staff 30,000 kip to take us on a boat for a couple hours with junk fishing gear to a couple places where there was no fish. The staff clearly had no experience. He did not speak English either so I had to translate. That’s fine he didn’t speak EN, but we were charged 240,000 kip for this rubbish experience. We later found out that this same tour should not cost more than 100,000 kip. He is a slick talker and I want to let other people know that there are other really good choices in Don Khong than this guy.
The service at the restaurant is quite poor as well, I should add. Very slow service (even by Lao standards!), screaming kids all over, higher priced than most. Food is not impressive for the price. There are several other very good options on the island. I will certainly not be back.
