Pakse


Pakse is the capital of Champasak Province and one of the largest cities in the southern part of Laos.

Many people come here to then travel onwards to neighboring Si Phan Don, Wat Phou or the Bolaven Plateau and you can also get from Pakse to the Xe Pian National Protected Area or Lao Ngam.

With this is mind however, there is still a lot to see and do in Pakse itself if you are travelling through, so try to spend a few nights here if possible.

The town lies on the Mekong and Sedone rivers and you will find delicious seafood restaurants dotted along the waterfront as well as herbal saunas for which the area is also famous.
