About Pakse


Pakse is the second largest town in Laos and the starting point for tours around the Bolaven Plateau. Pakse has a smaller number of tourist attractions than Vientiane or Luang Prabang, but it does have good facilities in terms of places to stay and restaurants. The three major temples in Pakse are Wat Luang, Wat Phabad and Wat Phou Salao. Pakse also has the Champasak Historical Heritage Museum which features locally found artefacts as well as artefacts from the Khmer Kingdom. In the evenings the liveliest part of the town is on the riverfront near the mouth of the Xe Don River where there is a cluster of bars, food stalls and restaurants.

From Pakse you can set out on a tour of the Bolaven Plateau on a rental motorbike or as part of an organised tour. There are limited public bus services in this part of Laos which is why you need your own vehicle or to join a tour. The Bolaven Plateau is an elevated area, 1,000 to 1,300 metres above sea level, known for it rivers, waterfall and small ethnic Laven settlements. There is a well established 2 day route with an overnight stop which takes visitors past the major attractions of Bolaven Plateau including the Pha Suam, Tad Yuang and Tad Sae waterfalls.
