Southern Laos

A rainbow of colours, Southern Laos is dazzling to behold. Take in the natural beauty of the gushing waterfalls and admire the glittering Buddhist temples scattered around.

This alluring land is just waiting for you to discover it – off the beaten tourist trail, Southern Laos offers geographic diversity with hidden treasures to be explored. Beautiful, beguiling and incredibly easy-going, Southern Laos is a feast for the senses, where exquisite temples and the delicate tracery of French colonial buildings festoon a landscape of rich river deltas, brooding mountains, dusty flat plains and verdant fields. Within this southern region, you’ll find the sleepy Mekong-side towns of Champasak, Pakse and Savannakhet, all atmospheric and full of charming French-inspired buildings sitting comfortably alongside Buddhist temples. As Pakse town is the gateway to Southern Laos, we recommended travelling further into Champasak province, visiting the Angkorian temple of Wat Phou and taking in the serene countryside surrounding it. From the flat plains with the occasional hills to the flowing waterfalls and coffee plantations, the Bolaven Plateau sits slightly to the east. Bordering Cambodia, 4000 Islands also known as Si Phan Don, offers a slightly different setting and is an area dotted with thousands of islands of various sizes in the Mekong Delta. With a stay on one of the islands, sit back and take in the views of traditional wooden houses, lush tropical greenery and the powerful Mekong in the background.
