Champasak is a charming small town that was once the seat of the Kingdom of Champasak. It was abolished in 1945 and became part of the Kingdom of Laos. It is well known for its quaint French colonial architecture as well as its many temples. It is very popular among tourists to Laos and the businesses abound with friendly faces welcoming one and all. There are archaeological sites nearby, including Vat Phou, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Thundering waterfalls and The 4000 Islands are a comfortable day trip. If you’re fortunate you may get a glimpse of the rare, freshwater pink Irrawaddy dolphins!
