The Champasak province is one of the most visited areas in southern Laos, with a number of attractions ranging from the Khmer sites of Wat Phu and Um Muang, the Bolaven plateau, a highland area with plantations, waterfalls and lots of scenery and the 4000 islands region (Si Phan Don) to the south. Champasak is one of the three principalities that succeeded the Lao kingdom of Lan Xang. The main entry point is its capital Pakse, from which you can easily reach all places of interest.
