Gateway to Southern Laos

Resting at the meeting point of the Se Don and Mekong rivers, Pakse provides the ideal starting point from which to begin your discovery of southern Laos.
Get out of town with these interesting Pakse side-trips: Champasak Town (Chez Maman, Wat Phu, &more) and Si Phan Don (in Don Loppadi). There's much more to do: make a trip to Phu Salao, Golden Buddha, get engrossed in the history at Champasak Historical Heritage Museum, take in the views from Lao Nippon Bridge, and take in the dramatic scenery at Tad Yuang Waterfalls.

To find where to stay, reviews, maps, and more tourist information, go to the Pakse trip planner.

The Route module shows you travel options from your home to Pakse. In October, plan for daily highs up to 37°C, and evening lows to 29°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 20th (Tue) early enough to go by car back home.
