"On the other side of the..." Laos Favorite Tip by Jillworld

Laos General: 153 reviews and 130 photos


Favorite thing: On the other side of the Mekong from Luang Prabang, we visited Wat Tham Xieng Maen, a dark cave temple that houses many old and damaged Buddha images. (Don't forget a flashlight.) The children in our photo were our 'guides' who showed us around and entertained us for a small fee. Actually, it felt more like babysitting as they were having a bit too much fun with some of the more broken statues...hmmm.

Review Helpfulness: 1.5 out of 5 stars
