  • Saccharin Street main street, like it eye catching. Nowhere so everything may light up the night, a glittering appearance during the day and also shows the fantastic look different.

  • Probably one of the best temples in Luang Pranang. I found several nice photo ops. Certainly worth the visit as it's easy to get to. 
  • One of the older temples of Luang Prabang. There is no admission fee but only within a temple within a temple is not open to visitors. The front entrance has a cute animal snares (don't look out what it is).
