Mekong Paradise Resort

Hotel in Pakse

A riverside spot just 3km southeast of central Pakse that makes for a wonderful escape from the city. Most rooms have unbeatable Mekong sunset views. The superior rooms (US$55) with their private balconies are almost romantic, but the views are actually better from the US$45 Mekong Paradise rooms. The Garden View rooms (US$38) defeat the point of staying out here.

It can feel a little deserted at times. Take the signed turn-off to Pakse Golf from Rte 38 and proceed 800m.
