  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.
