In the south of Laos, in Champasak Province near the Cambodian border, some 200 km from Angkor Wat and about a one hour drive from Pakse on a good road, is the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Vat Phou. It is an exceptional archeological site originating in the 6th century and thriving until the 15th Century. Its influences come from Khmer, Hindu, and Buddhist traditions that blend elegantly in its architectural, ritualistic, and artistic designs.


The Mekong River is the lifeblood of Laos in so many ways not least of which is commerce trade and transport. Village ports in the south no matter how small are always a hive of activity #laos #champasak #southernlaos #rurallaos #4000islands #siphandon #mekong #mekongriver #eatdrinklaos | Eat Drink Laos

The countryside of southern Laos is really this green. Or at least it is in the "green season"! Rice paddy fields water buffalo palm trees and distant hills against a backdrop of blue skies and rolling clouds. It's a little slice of heaven. #laos #champasak #southernlaos #rurallaos #eatdrinklaos | Eat Drink Laos
