Just across the Mekong River from Thailand, the city of Savannakhet has benefited from its prosperous neighbor, developing its commercial and tourism sector. Juxtaposed to this modernization, architectural attractions in Savannakhet serve as reminders of the city's past--from the crumbling colonial French quarter to an impressive 16th-century Buddhist stupa. Thanks to a grid system, you can easily get around on foot here, with the waterfront and steadily growing number of restaurants and cafes contributing to the pleasant, easygoing ambiance. Use Savannakhet's tourism center, which organizes trips to the surrounding natural protected areas. Take a peek at our international travel planner: Savannakhet and its charms laid bare and easily scheduled.
