BUNG VA (VA LAKE)
This is the largest lake lying in the outskirts of the Savannakhet city. Along the lake shore, several restaurants have opened up and some provide gazebos (small covered platforms) where you can enjoy lunch or a cold beer Lao while enjoying beautiful scenery or even rent pedalos to get out onto the lake. The lake is a perfect stop before or after visiting That Ing Hang (Ing Hang Stupa).
How to get there: head out eastwards from Savannakhet city for about 12 kilometers – it is also sign posted from the edge of the city. While there are two ways out to That Ing Hang, the lake lies along the way of the shorter option for getting there and in Kaisone Phomvihanh Town.
The restaurants are open daily from 09:00am-09:00pm.
