    The Palazzo Reale is one of the highlights in Luang Prabang.Von of the opposite wall, you should make in the evening his big picture, when the Palace shines in the blue hour. But you should previously inform whether the Palace has opened. Because the times vary constantly. Interesting is also the history of the Royal family.
