Pakse City Tour – Cycling to Pakse’s main points of interest

This city trip starts at Wat Luang, continues along the Sedone River, past the confluence with the Mekong until you see floating boat restaurants. Continue downstream until a left curve takes you to the busy and colorful Daoheuang Market. From there, head towards the stadium and turn left onto Road 13. Continue along Road 13 until you see the Historical Museum on your right, and the Hero Monument on your left-hand side. As you continue you will see a Chinese Temple and Wat Phabat, both on your right-hand side. 

A little further along, near the Russian bridge, you can appreciate the view of the historic Champasak Palace Hotel. Continue on Road 13 to enter the Vietnamese quarter at the next junction on your left, and turn right at next crossroad. Continue to pass the old Catholic Church and the hospital and turn to the right into the market area, where you will find the Champasak Plaza, a shopping centre. Continue to ride past the Pakse Hotel and go straight on at the junction. Turn left back into Road 13 and go on towards the Vietnamese Consulate where you turn left again. You can take the second small road on the right to the Vida Bakery (open from Monday to Friday), or turn left at the same intersection to go back to Wat Luang (right, then left before the bridge) and continue to the Sisouk Coffeeshop or to the Pakse Hotel where you can have a Beer Lao at the rooftop restaurant Le Panorama and enjoy the beautiful 360° view over the city (opening hours: daily from 4:30pm). Since the reopening of the French Brigde (2016), a short extra-loop over this bride, there turn left and 500 m along Sedone-River to have a visit at Wat Sopse at the river mouth is well worth to do, if the time budget allows it.
