Ban Sing is a riverside village located on route to Kuang Si waterfalls and is accessible via land or boat. It’s here where boats dock when dropping off guests who are cruising south to visit Kuang Si waterfalls and its neighboring attraction. Although Ban Sing is only a transfer point along Kuang Si tours, here is a little extra information about this village. When arriving to Ban Sing by boat, guests are greeted by a large Bohda tree encased in white cement that majestically overlooks the Mekong. It can be seen from a distance, elevated safely, comparatively speaking, to the Mekong’s ever changing water levels. At times, you can see offerings left at the tree and on a rock sitting nearby. Ban Sing is a good representation of a Lao Loum village. The villagers here earn their livings mainly through agriculture with some families still actively fishing the river. Ban Sing is made up of about fifty families and you can see the steps leading up to the village temple if walking up to meet your transportation. Ban Sing lies directly across the Mekong from another agricultural and fishing Lao Loum village called Ban Saleuan. A small local ferry will operate when needed between the two villages making it a crossing point for many locals living on the west side including the older students needing to get to and from high school. Ban Sing is located 11 km. from Kuang Si waterfalls and it takes approximately 15-minutes to go one way. Please note that transportation should be arranged prior to arriving in Ban Sing. Drivers won’t be waiting at this location to pick-up visitors as it is inland slightly and off the main road.
