Pakse is the capital of Champassak Province in southern Laos, situated at the confluence of the Mekong and Xe Don rivers. Though it was originally founded as a French administrative outpost in 1905, little evidence of French influence remains.
Instead, modern-day Pakse serves as a commercial hub between Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam and is the gateway to key attractions in Champassak Province. Popular day trips include visits to the famed 4,000 Islands; ancient Wat Phu Temple, a UNESCO World Heritage site; and the coffee plantations of the Bolaven Plateau.
