Pakse itself is a boring spot with nothing to do. Maybe a night walk along the river and the small street restaurants there, but otherwise nothing to see. But…it’s a good spot to do a tour on the Boloven plateau as well as to drive down to Wat Phu a forgotten temple complex 50 km to the south.
The Boloven plateau gave an insight in some of the most beautiful waterfalls I’ve seen so far as well as animist villages and unknown spots on the map. The overnight stay facing a waterfall was breathtaking. Definitely worth the tour !
