Given the architectural prominence of the exterior, I was expecting this to be a real highlight of trip here. Be aware that this sight is apparently operated by the government. Opening times and days are very erratic. I noted opening time and 1:30 PM on...More

It’s too bad you cannot take photos inside. This is the old palace and has lovely paintings, jewelry and all things royal, wonderful furniture. You should visit here to see it all. It won’t take long unless you have a guide as we did. I...More

A short visit, but well worth it. The museum is very interesting and some lovely trees and a big raised pond with pink lilies. Phousi hill is just opposite.

Spent a short time here. Lovely gardens. There is a separate charge for the museum which appears to be closed around lunchtime. We missed the car collection which I think might have been interesting.

Nothing too special here. My favourite part was the lotus pond. Beautiful pink flowers! The royal cars were personally the most interesting thing. Signs are in English so you know what you’re looking at.

I had wonderful days visiting beautiful land, Laos. I was really impressed by the true beauty of Laos. Especially visit the museum of Laos, where royal Laos once lived there. Everything like that just happened. Now, I can understand more about Laos history.

A relatively small palace, which doesn't take a huge amount of time to walk around. There is the palace itself, Lilly pond, the royal car collection and a temple which you can go up to but not into. The site is 30000 kip to enter...More

From the outside, this looks like a big complex but it is really just two building. Just on the right of the entrance is a small temple. You can visit this for free. The Royal Palace is in the back. You need a ticket for...More

You can't get inside the temple in the complex, but the architecture is very nice. The palace itself has one very imposing room as you enter and I could have amused myself there for hours looking at the scenes depicted in the unusual mosaics on...More

Don't expect super opulent royal palace as this was used for a short period of time and not long ago. The baggage storage area is way off to the front and you can take nothing at all inside so be prepared. The front rooms are...More
