  • Outside of the city temple is noticeable since the Phousi and bridge for mopeds and pedestrians on the Nam Khan or the view is certainly the most beautiful. On-site nothing better, to be included in a trip passing nearby.

  • This place is really good as a view point! I was there in sunset time. It looks great! Its calm and nice place. There is no many people out there. 
  • 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.

  • When you head to the city from Luang Prabang Airport would not come out, such as the Lonely Planet, but looks bigger on the left is this.

  • 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.
