  Wat Xieng Thong
by bkoon

Wat Xieng Thong is a magnificent temple in Luang Prabang. You will need to pay an entrance fee of 10,000 KIP. However, if you want to get in for free, go in the evening, say, after 5pm.

The special thing about this temple is that it gave me a very nice feeling. A classic Lao design and architecture.

As the temple houses many monks, you would be able to get some good photos with monks in their bright orange robes.

Address: Luang Prabang, by the riverside

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
