If you're bus drops you at Jasmin Restaurant (malaysian and Indian food) in Pakse, please do not give them any business (there are plenty other restaurants nearby).
Many backpackers/travellers have been conned by his "V.I.P." BUS SERVICE!!
You pay V.I.P. prices, and end up on a local bus that takes 3times longer than claimed with no aircon, cramped seats, deafening karaoke T.V and smelly livestock on board. All this is no problem if you pay for a local bus, but at V.I.P prices this guy is raking in a fortune. Beware his nice nature, he is a con man!!!!!
Please teach him a lesson and support a boycott.

are you chatting about southrn Laos?

last year we were conned at a travels agent there. we brought train tickets for Ubon to Bangok! we handed over the money, but had no seats on the train! the train peope on the Thai side lasughed sweetly at us for our stupied mistake!

buy tickets when you get to the Thai train station!!

if you catch aocal bus anywhere in Laos its much more of an experience anyway, so try and avoid VIP buses anywhere!
