It's not as old as the other temples, but really well done, very intricate. It won't take long to see but worth a walk by.

The palace is worth a visit but it is very modest. Be aware about the dress code, short sleeve shirts, long pants for women.

You can't possibly miss this temple as it's located at the heart of Luang Prabang, next to the National Museum (The Royal Palace). This temple provides a very beautiful backdrop for great photos, especially when taken from the opposite Mount Phousi, when the night market is setting up.

Located right in front of the entrance of the Royal Palace Museum grounds, this ornate building is also known as Wat Ho Pha Bang. It was built to enshrine the statue of the Buddha after which this town is named, the Phra Bang Buddha. Entry is however not permitted into the building.
