    The evening is the best time to visit this place. It's quiet and not crowded, here is a good review in the sunset ... And be sure to listen to the prayer of monks chanting at the evening service.

    Nothing to special about the Wat as far as Wat's go. It is supposed to have a nice view of the sunset, which I passed on, and a monk talk program, which I also passed on.  more »

    Very glamorous temple, shining in the sunset, the Monk said the temple has 115 years history, he speaks Chinese, because he visited Shaolin Temple (well known for Chinese Kingfu) of China once.

    Beautiful place with a very relaxing atmosphere. Considering there's not much else to see in Houay Xay it's a must visit.

Where to stay in Huay Xai

Not known for its selection of accommodations, Huay Xai offers just a few places to stay nestled up against the Mekong. These options remain basic but welcoming and, more importantly, budget friendly. Most visitors choose to stay across the river in the Thai town of Chiang Khong, which offers a much wider range of accommodations. Others continue directly on to other destinations deeper in Laos.
