Visitors can use Champasak as a launch pad for further adventures. This much-loved region has been endowed with numerous wonderful sights and attractions.
Venture back into the past during your time in the area. Take the time to visit some of the historic palaces for which this region is well known. Laos is graced with some significant shrines and other places of worship, ideal places to get an insight into Champasak's spiritual side.
Why don't you take the opportunity to relax and enjoy during gentle pastimes such as cycling or wildlife watching. Both activities are popular with both tourists and locals alike. Specialized tours are a great way to discover the places most visitors never see. Join into one of the guided nature walks, cycling tours and wildlife spotting tours.
Local foods are an excellent way to get to know the area you are in. So make sure you make the time to visit some of the region's restaurants. Cellophane noodles (made from mung bean starch) and asian basil are widely used ingredients in kitchens in this region. Two local favorites not to miss are khao jee (baguettes) are laab moo (minced pork salad). Those who can still find room for a little more, should try fresh fruit, a great way to round out your Laos culinary experience. And, whatever time it is, Laos is a great place to ask for fruit juice (watermelon, pineapple, sugar apple).
Really great vacations are about getting to know new people and having great adventures. Laos is the perfect place for doing exactly that.
