Then we took Sam Lor or tricycle to explore Ubon Rachathani city and visited parts with ancient temples and some museums to learn about the history of the northeast of Thailand. In the afternoon, after lunch by Mea Khong river, we visited Sampambok which is dubbed the Grand Canyon of Thailand. Sampan means 3 thousand and Bok means hollow. We spent the night in Laos at Chumpasak Grand Hotel at Pakse district in Champasak. Another choice , you can stay at Thai style hotel likeTohsang Khongjiam Resort and travel in Pakse in the morning.We entering Laos through Chongmek.
