We visited Pha That Luang by bicycle. The complex is outside the centre, and you have to cycle on some of the main roads to get there. There is very little traffic, so that is not really an issue.

Actually you can visit not only the Sacred Stupa, since there are a lot of other attractions just few minutes by Laotian tuktuk. But this place is really nice, not so big, not small one, just perfect, I didn't got inside the stupa, but walk around... really good place to visit. Also this place is surrounded by another Wats, worth a visit! I heard that inside is really beautiful!

As my taxi approached the That Luang, I just wanted to step of the taxi and take a good photo shoot of the sacred stupa. It is simply stunning. I spent like an hour walking around it, snapping pictures from all angles. It is worth to get inside too for a close up photo shoot. The temples surrounding the That Luang are amazing and stunning. The architecture of these temples and the That Luang is of high perfection.

The best time to visit is in the morning between 8 and 9 am. There aren't many tourists at this time and that means you can take your time to snap the best photos.
