Take a glimpse in the history of royal families at Palazzo Reale, and witness artistic gold motifs. When you enter, you'll see paintings of Laotian monarchs and murals on the wall showing the lifestyle of past times. A statue of Buddha, made in gold, bronze, and silver, draws attention. Continue to secretariat room, where the museum exhibits gifts the royal family received, or visit the throne room, which boasts some valuable royal possessions and Buddha images. Be aware that you cannot take photos inside the residence. Also, dress appropriately (for instance, women cannot enter if wearing a short skirt).

  • In the same enclosure, we can admire the beautiful temple of the Golden Buddha, which houses a small sacred Buddha and the Royal Palace Museum, with very beautiful collections of silver, of musical instruments, of clothing... If you have the opportunity, take a walk in the Park, very nice and hold a show in the room which is left in the Park.

  • Lots of history here. Very beautiful building with lots of things to see. Can be quite busy with tourists though, so come here early.  more »
  • Everything is wonderful even if it is very touristy. It is better to visit early to be able to take the time to discover the wonders in this temple.
