Its interesting but there are other things to do. Worth a short visit as it is right on the main street.

Don't take pictures inside. Or into the inside from outside!!! it is basically a shrine to the old kings of LP. But don't ask where their ancestors are now. That's a no no.

From the "Floating Buddha" photography exhibit to the beautiful green and gold wat (temple) adorning the palace grounds...from traditional musical instruments housed in the theatre to an elegant representation of vehicles, Laos' royal history seeps from every leafy corner of the grounds.

By daylight and by nightfall, a beautiful journey through the heritage of Luang Prabang and Laos. One night during Phi Mai Laos (Laos New Year), there was a beautiful candle-lit garden performance by the Royal Ballet of the Ramayana. You'll see graceful dancers holding aloft tea-light lotus lanterns of sheer fabric, shining and sparkling off the golden-green temple top. If you are ever in Luang Prabang during New Year, please look for this special outdoor performance, half price at the Palace grounds and held free for the public on another night at Wat Mai next door.

We really enjoyed seeing the Royal Palace and found it nice to get a feel for how the Royal Family lived, they did not appear to be an extravagant family and that was refreshing.
