Lazy Travel Tips Around Champasak: Where to Go Around Pakse City Center in South Laos

After writing about the review of my experience staying at Dream Resort Farm in Pakse last week, I finally got a chance to sit down and share my whole Pakse experience when I was in Champasak.

As I previously mentioned, visiting Pakse wasn’t on my initial plan for my Indochina trip. I went to Pakse as I found out that the city was an excellent place to go to Laos from Cambodia overland.

I figure it’s a sweet spot for transit before I got to the capital city in Vientiane. It didn’t take 10++ hours by bus from Siem Reap, and there are still things to see around the city, even if you’re only there for a short stay.

As visiting Pakse was out of my initial itinerary, I wasn’t too ambitious to travel around the city. I only spent half of my first day walking around the city, and that was it. Still, I’m glad that I made it even when I did it the lazy way!

And this time, I’m going to share my experience staying at Dream Resort Farm, the accommodation where I stayed a few days in Pakse, the capital city of the southern Laotian province of Champasak.

Review Bus from Cambodia to Laos: How to Travel from Siem Reap to Pakse With Asia Van Transfer

I always love road trips!

And ever since I started planning my Indochina trip, I knew that I wanted to use either bus or train to get me from one place to another.

That, until I googled about the bus from Siem Reap to Vientiane that I found out the number of border services from Cambodia to Laos isn’t as many options like those from Cambodia to Vietnam.

After researching the options that I could take from Siem Reap to somewhere in Laos, I decided to make a stopover in Pakse. Honestly, when I decided to do that, it was actually my first time hearing about Pakse, so I barely knew anything about where to go or what to visit there.

However, I figured stopping by Pakse is an excellent way to go if I want to go across the border from Cambodia to Laos by land. I could stay for a night or two, and then continue my trip to Vientiane later. So I did.
