What is Savannakhet known for?

In Laos, few visitors visit Savannakhet. It's about halfway between Vang Vieng's tubing and the cold 4,000 islands, so many visitors skip it on a night bus or don't even go through the nation.

Savannakhet is a big culturally diversified Laotian rural town located near the Mekong River.  It boasts some lovely French colonial architecture and serves as a vital commerce hub for Thailand, Laos, and Vietnam. 

Savannakhet, the biggest town in Southern Laos, was traditionally an important transit and commercial station. The finest things to do are to walk down the waterfront and look at the weird but interesting Dinosaur Museum's fossil collection before dining at a lovely riverfront restaurant.
