“Its nice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2013

This is considering the most regarded of the temples in VTE. Its a bit disappointing as there really isn't much to see for the temple itself. However, it is important to see since you are in VTE

“Slightly Overrated”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013

Not very impressive for a highly-acclaimed national treasure. Felt that the other two temples offerred more.

“big and beautiful !”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2013

if you visit the capital it is a must-do to see the town´s landmark. it is very big, walking around is the best way to get an impression. honestly, we have seen other temples with more details but it is worth to see.

“Incredible”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

That Luang is a breath taking insight into the history and culture of Laos. Buddhism is important to locals and this monument holds a lot of value for the country, which I think makes it even more interesting to see.
