A small town on the west bank of the Mekong River, Champasak was once the royal capital of the Na Champasak principality, which ruled much of Southern Laos. Popular due to its proximity to the majestic Wat Phu Champasak ruins to the south and as a jumping-off point for Don Daeng, Champasak today is a sleepy town with the only remnants  of royalty being two Colonial- style royal residences located  just south of the fountain in the center of town. Due west of these buildings lies Wat Thong, the temple where the town’s sovereigns performed religious rites, and where their cremated ashes now lie. The town is a pleasant place to relax after a tiring day at Wat Phu. It also has a variety of accommodation options that range from guesthouses to the upscale Inthira Hotel Champanakone
