Visit champasak

Meandering for 4km along the right bank of the Mekong and bordered by Thailand and Cambodia, Champasak is a sleepy town sandwiched between the river and mountains; and of wooden shophouses and recently paved roads, with a pace so decidedly leisurely that it’s difficult to imagine it as a seat of royalty from 1713 until 1946 and the capital of a once bustling kingdom, whose territory stretched from the Annamite Mountains into present-day Thailand.

These days, Champasak is a somnolent place best-known for the Wat Phu complex, a series of intricate Khmer ruins which were designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2001 and and several other archaeological sites that are slowly being unearthed. A land of swift rivers, emerald rice paddies, and tropical highlands wreathed in mist and fog, Champasak is a unique destination in a country that is already far off the beaten path. There are also several delightful riverside restaurants, a few shops and several scattered French colonial-era buildings sharing space with traditional Lao wooden stilt houses.

Cruises in Champasak

Vat Phou Cruise
Originally a ferry that carried teak wood between Vientiane and the south of Laos, in 1993 the Vat Phou boat was lovingly converted into a luxurious floating hotel, cruising the Mekong river. Accommodating up to 24 people, this spacious vessel offers plenty of areas in which to relax in peace as you cruise the “Mother of Waters” to the wild paradise of the 4,000 islands.
