Any visitor to LP will pass the Royal Palace on many occasions. The museum is interesting and it is a shoes off affair, surprisingly even in the cloakroom. As you enter off the street, the Royal Temple is to the right and is a stunning piece of architecture. Worth some of your time.

No photos allowed...officially anyway,though a few people (who,me?) managed to sneal a few shots of the royal cars.I wouldn't recommend trying to sneak any photos inside the museum,shows disrespect.

It is worth a visit if you are interested in the local history. Don't be expect to be wowed by the exhibits. We found it very hot and humid in October which took some of the fun out of it. They are strict about dress codes - no shoes, no hats, no bare shoulders, no shorts, no t-shirts, no short dresses or skirts. I was okay with a short sleeve polo shirt. No photos inside. They have a nice collection of genuine very old antique buddhas from the local area if you are into that. If your time is short I would suggest focusing on a river tour to the caves, the water falls, a couple of short temple visits, or rent a bike and pedal around town which we really enjoyed.

Little expensive compared to the other sightseeing you'll do but to see the Pha Bang it's with the 30,000 kip. No photos are allowed inside and once you see the inside made almost entirely of glass mosaic you can understand why. Off the the side of the palace there's a fish pond. You can buy fish food for5,000 from an elderly lady and watch the fish go crazy! Loads of fun for kids or the young at heart.

In the evenings, there is a local ballet group that present music and dance performances just next to the museum building. It was inspiring and very beautiful. Buy the tickets at the door. The costumes were amazing and the people were very passionate and friendly.
