Accommodation - Pakse
We only spent 1 brief night in Pakse, which was long enough to book an onward bus to Vientiane later in the week and also to organise a trip to the nearby Bolaven Plateau. Other than an interesting concert in the main square, there was little else of interest that happened to me here.
Built by a now-dead prince as a residence he never lived in, the Palace is described quite accurately in one guidebook as looking like a giant wedding cake, the Champasak Palace may be a bit of a behemothic eyesore from the outside, but once inside, you will get sweeping verandas and spectacular views over the surrounds.
Champa Residence is situated in the heart of Pakse, next to Champasak Museum and surrounded by shopping areas including the Evening market and Pakse market.
