  • One of the temples in the heart of the ancient city of Luang Prabang, in the Saccharin Street. As a tourist destination, there were few tourists because it was not very famous. We went sightseeing after eating at the delicious and famous Khao Soi shop opposite the Saccharin Street.

  • It faces the Saccharin street and the entrance fee is a quiet temple free of charge. It is also impressive, so you can spend slowly in the heart calmly because there is no tourist to put it willingly.

  • This temple is located on the road from the night market to the World Heritage Site Wat Xieng Thong. When I was there absolutely empty except for my group. Already decorated and gilded. Absolutely worth seeing.
