Crumbling remains of French colonialism

Champasak is a small town just a few hours South of Pakse and is famous for the ruins of Wat Phu Champasak - the former capital of the Lao kingdom and now a world heritage sight. We spent the morning exploring the small, but very impressive ruins set on a hillside overlooking the Mekong valley. Gave us a taste of what we can expect to see in Cambodia at Angkor Wat. So far we've avoided getting "watted out" and are still drinking it all in very happily.
