A mountaintop temple offers images of Buddhist religion and views of the city, at Wat Phol Phao. This forest meditation retreat offers peaceful surroundings with panoramic views. Built in an octagonal style, the Buddhist temple features interior paintings depicting Buddhist stories. See stone carvings, murals, and statues painted in gold. Because the site is situated uphill, rent a motorbike or a bicycle to avoid a long hike. If you drive, take time to stop at some spots to take in the views and landscape.

  • There is nothing normal in the Luang Prabang magic however this temple may not have the appeal of others that exist in the area. We arrived in a nice bike ride and must say that the views of the city are impressive. If you have time and want a walk in bike.

  • The temple is located quite far from the city-5 kilometers and the road is probably in the Hill. On a moped, we arrived without problems, but were overtaken by tourists on bikes-they were pathetic. The temple itself is nothing special, but there I first saw Buddhist nuns! Although no, ASU. seen on the streets of the city a couple of times, but here in the temple for the first time.

  • The temple is located on the outskirts of town, surrounded by thick forest. We liked the temple, it is quite beautiful and unusual. Would like to mention the fact that it is not similar to other temples in Laos has peculiar architecture..

  • Beautiful guys, but may lack the historical fact that recently completed, but if there is enough time, it is recommended that should you wish to see the afternoon guys will get polarized and then shooting angle, beautiful guys. Oh, here there is no admission fee for me leaving travelers. If the bike is a steep uphill which must be spinning enough, guys.
