Salavan is a province in the south of Laos. The capital of the province is also called Salavan. In the rest of Laos, this province has a bad reputation because of the black magic that is being practised here. More than 30 different ethnic groups call this province their home, with the Kataang, the Tai Lao and the Ta Oy being the major groups.

The few backpackers who make it to Salavan, are rewarded with abundant natural beauty, for example in the Phu Xieng Thong National Biodiversity Conservation Area.
