Thanks for the reply. Information about onwards buses from Paksan is very limited, so am I right in assuming it's going to be a two day journey, with an overnight stop in Paksan?
My original intention was to do Vientiane - Luang Prabang - Phonsavan - Pakse . Would it be more advisable to go Vientiane - Phonsavan - Luang Prabang - Pakse thus enabling me to fly from LP down to Pakse?

alfredm thanks for the advice, being in Pakse by 12.35 take it that means I can more or less get straight on a bus to Champasak eliminating the need to stay in Pakse over night at all?
In terms of options for flying Luang Prabang to Pakse is the only one Lao Airlines?

Hmmm.... in 2006 we took a taxi from Pakse to Champasak. It was 45 USD for these 35km, see my travelogue:
It's not a big deal getting straight to Champasak, although I don't know if there are buses.
Regarding the flight, both skyscanner.net and amadeus.net only show this direct flight by Lao.

Haven't really seen anything in Pakse that makes me particularly want to spend a night there- perhaps I am wrong?
So far as I can tell buses to Champasak leave Pakse from the Dao Heung/Morning Market, and the journey takes up to 2 hours, (cost $2).
Will have a look at your travelogue- thanks for that.
