We checked into a grotty but overpriced hotel, the Langkham which was not as clean as you would hope and they annoyed us by insisting they didnt have fan rooms available and we had to pay for an aircon room when there was a huge ceiling fan in the room
The drive there and back was awesome, through fields and villages and it was great to be back in the countryside again after so long in cities. On arriving in Champasak we immediately regretted not heading straight there and staying there. A small town surrounded by mountains and fields and peaceful and laid back if we were to come again we would stay here and miss out Pakse for sure.
We wandered around the ruins and pretended to be indiana jones and lara croft and then headed back to Pakse very much looking forward to heading out to Si Phan Don (4000 Islands) the next day.
