Phonsavan

Trip Planner Asia  /  Laos  /  Xiangkhouang Province  /  Phonsavan
A base for explorations, the town of Phonsavan sits surrounded by impressive scenery and offers easy access to an abundance of cultural and historic sites. The plains around Phonosavan feature thousands of prehistoric stone jars, possibly related to ancient funereal rites. The jars have an evocative look about them, situated in the landscape of forests, grassy hillsides, and craters created by intense bombing during the Second Indochina War. Sites related to the war, including cave refuges, ruins, and memorials, represent some of the main places to visit in Phonsavan. Take a peek at our international travel planner: Phonsavan and its charms laid bare and easily scheduled.
