Pakse is the transport hub of the south and a gateway for exploring the southern Laos Mekong. It is the capital and most populous city in the southern province of Champasak, making it the third most populous city in Laos. It does retain some pockets of French era character however unfortunately these are slowly being swallowed up by urban sprawl. The town does have some good restaurants and a few markets.

I can't think of anything that excites a greater sense of childlike wonder than to be in a country where you are ignorant of almost everything.
