Beautiful mosaic and gold leaf in the main hall with the thrones, crowns, etc and interesting to see the clothes, etc. Definitely not reflected in the austere surroundings. Worth a look but it only occupies maybe 30mins to look round the whole thing; part of...More

It brings you back to the life of the king with his collection of cars and love for theatre plays. Nice and spacious to walk around. There is a big statue of the king

This place is well worth a visit. You will learn about Bhuddism and also about Laos when it had a royal family. The palace itself is beautiful and so are the grounds.

The royal palace is beautiful. It is currently undergoing maintenance but still accessible and a sight worth seeing. It is across from the entrance to mount phousi and central to the night market

In the centre of LP. Ceremonial rooms at the front are very elaborate and then you move to the living quarters at the back which give a good insight to how they lived

It was very interesting to notice the mix between European and Asian styles. The palace features French chandeliers and French style furniture

I thought this museum will have a lot to show about Laos. But they have only king's valuables. The entry fee is 30k (about 4 USD), not worth your time unless you are close to kings history.
