Wat Phou – Half Day Tour
Accompanied by a private guide, spend half a day exploring the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Wat Phou. These impressive ruins pre-date the temples of Angkor and are spread across a hillside, offering stunning views over the countryside.
Depending on where you are staying, you will start the tour with a walk through the town of Pakse, where you can admire the old-world architecture and learn about the area’s colonial past.
Journey out into the countryside to reach the site of Wat Phou. Whilst most of the buildings in the complex were built during the 11th to 13th centuries, some can be dated back as far as the 5th century. The temple is split over three levels, and is still in a remarkably good condition, offering one of the best-preserved monuments from the Khmer Empire. Climb to the top level of the temple to take in breathtaking panoramic views.
