Sited next to the Royal Place museum it is on the main tourist trail. For us not as pretty as other Temples in the town but still worth the entrance fee. Donating towards the upkeep of these historic buildings is always worth doing.

The wat is quite small but interesting. It is located just besides the Royal Place Museum. You can visit it after touring the big museum.

Another must. Like everything in Laos, it is beautiful. I came home with far too many photos as it was so pretty.

A small Wat in the city centre. After seeing dozens of Wats, I don't find this one of special interest, but it is ok. 10k kip entrance fee.
