“beautiful place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

All Luang Pra Bang tempels must be visited and make an effort to go to. As it is a Holly city and without visiting temples the trip to Luang Pra Bang is meaningless. Also try to go in the evening where you can see the monk chanting so so beautiful experience.

“Pretty wat with fab reviews”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2012 via mobile

After spotting this wat from Phou si the following day we decided to cycle to this golden temple

Worth visiting it's very pretty and you can see views over luang prabang looking back to mount phou si. Gorgeous paintings inside. Lovley grounds.

In the afternoon it's open from 130-430

An easy cycle from the town with one hill to the temple.

“Laos iconic architecture”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2012

Few visitors, low entry fee, Worth paying a guide to learn more about the buildings, the stories represented on the walls and to appreciate the history and present day significance.
