Remember to wear modest clothes, such as that which covers arms and knees. The Palace is not really a museum but it is a former palace of the last Kings of Laos. It costs 30,000 kip to enter (about £3) and you'll need to allow...More

No pictures as you can't take them inside. It is well worth a visit for the stunning mosaics inside made from what we were told was "Japanese glass". I had never seen this before and it is like coloured mirrors almost.

The palace was built by the royal family in the early 19th century. They had some beautiful things. Here are their names that you'll forget in a moment. Nothing about who these people were. Nothing about what came before or after them. Not so much...More

Inexpensive, and quick to visit. Care for your attire as it is rigorously checked. They show the rooms and other bits and pieces as well as old royal cars and attire they used to wear.

This was the royal palace in its time but now is a museum where you can see the remains of a past era of the monarchy. It is a manageable size which keeps your interest with the trappings of royalty. The mirror glass mosaics were...More

unfortunately absolutely no photos are allowed. This turn of the century royal residence has been well preserved and provides a unique insight into the history of Laos. The royal family doesn't live here anymore. The palace was built in 1904 during the French colonial era...More
