Pakse itself isn't very interesting, but it is a hub to reach the scene sites around it, such as the numerous waterfalls, temples (including Wat Phu Champasak which is of Khmer style likes Angkor Wat), Four thousand islands, Laos coffee, Laos tea.

Vientiane is the capital of Laos, as for most capital cities, this place is not that interesting for travellers. You should visit Pha That Luang, a beautiful temple that houses a piece of breast bone of Buddha. If you have time, visit the national museum to learn more about the country.

We stayed at a nice small hotel called Beau Rivage Mekong, we also visited the best hotel in town for lunch, that is Settha Palace Hotel.

We like Luang Prabang a lot, nice small town with some interesting temples, guest houses and fine cuisine. The sunset view from the hill is magnificent. Wat Xieng Thong is one of the most beautiful temples in Laos. We also took a boat trip to Pak Ou Cave which wasn't that interesting though. During the boat trip, we also visited two villages that make rice whisky and rice paper.
