Just relax in some of the cheap cafe's around, maybe rent a bike and explore this little French colonial town. In the evening catch a beer by the river and take some time out from the road.

Tennis

Savannakhet Tennis Club is on Khantabuli Road. While the tennis clubhouse may look like it needs upgrading, the three courts are actually in good condition. Court fee is 20,000 Kip. Remember to bring your own racquets.

Treks

Eco-tourism treks is advertised in most guesthouses and are fantastic. They offer homestays, forest food, school visits, local guides and many more. It is highly recommended.

Massage

Lao Massage is just for 35,000 Kip for one hour at Dokchampa Khao on the main street. It is the best in town. A clean, discreet and welcome place run by a woman who speaks English fluently and it is an excellent choice after trekking. 

Charity 

As Savannakhet isn't the most touristic place in Laos, many urban teenagers who study English, are eager to meet a foreigner and practice English with them. In Savannakhet, thresholds don't exist, so don't be shy to visit a classroom in either the Sangha High School at Wat Saiyaphum at Mekong riverside or the TTC (Teacher Training College), which is a few kilometres out of town on the road to Seno.

Visit the Eye Hospital Savannakhet, located next to Wat Ponsavangthai. Meet the English speaking eye doctors, donate spectacle frames or financially support cataract surgery for the poor. Part of this hospital is a vocational centre where more than ten blind people stay, who give Lao Massage for just 25,000 Kip for 1 hour and 30 minutes.

Exhibition

Historic Downtown Exhibition is at Latsaphanit road. Opens from 8:30AM to 10PM. There is a private exhibition about history of the downtown area at the second floor of Lin's Cafe, built in 1930s. No entry free.
